If you’ve been to Berlin, you know the kiosk culture that defines the more trendy areas of the city: in neighborhoods like Kreuzberg and Neukölln you don’t need to head out to the bars, as you can just as easily camp out at the kiosk all night, gaining your liquid sustenance for a fraction of the price.
This culture is not overtly present here in Frankfurt, but when I feel like saving a few EUROs while simultaneously having the opportunity to drink some Belgian beer, I often steer our group to Kiosk 45 up in Bornheim, at least to start the night, that is.
With a beer selection that numbers in the hundreds (maybe even thousands; I’ve never taken the time to count), there’s literally something for everyone. They also have a selection of other drinks and snacks, hence you could easily spend a significant portion of your night here.
On warm summer evenings, however, my preference is to grab something to drink and head over to Günthersburg Park, which is right across the street. Bergerstr., which is similarly just a stones throw away, is easily accessed once you’re ready for the more standard bar scene.
