Machine translated text. Show original   Edit translation

The Sonic Ballroom is a small but nice and cosy punk rock shop in Ehrenfeld. Here are often good concerts with fresh bands (often a few real highlights) followed by disco. Otherwise, the scene in the Sonic Ballroom likes to meet for a beer or two. The audience is a mixed (young, old, casual, business).

In short: Live Club & Punk Rock' n' Roll Bar, pub and beer garden. Where do you get it today in Cologne?

Der Sonic Ballroom ist ein kleiner, aber feiner und gemütlicher Punk-Rock Laden in Ehrenfeld. Hier sind öfters gute Konzerte mit frischen Bands (oft ein paar richtige Highlights) und anschließender Disco. Ansonsten trifft sich die Szene im Sonic Ballroom gerne auf ein Bier oder zwei. Das Publikum ist dabei ein gemischtes (jung, alt, casual, business).

Kurzum: Live Club & Punk´Rock´n´Roll Bar, Kneipe und Biergarten. Wo bekommt man das heute noch in Köln!?
