5 bars where you can meet the locals in Hamburg

1) Aurel

The façade is crumbling, because sadly the Aurel – a central feature of Alma- Wartenberg-Platz – is soon to make way to redevelopment. Drop by before the day comes, to down a Grosse Freiheit (beer) with an old friend. Either at the bar counter below the DJ’s platform, or right in front of the Aurel. It’s a great place to watch the neighbourhood’s comings and goings.
