Plank – No ties

Frankfurt is famous as a seat of many banks and financial services providers (that’s why they also call it Bankfurt!). This was never a problem though for the establishment of more alternative and casual places. This is the case of Plank, an alternative, stylish and comfortable bar, where you are advised to better remove any ties before entering…

The area around the central train station has recently become a new hip spot of the city and Plank is certainly taking part in this evolution. The black-painted room with the big wooden bar and the always fresh flowers is located in one of the most colourful neighbourhoods of Frankfurt; next to it you will find döner places, grocery stores and fisheries. Its big corner windows invite you to enter the place, order coffee or a drink and watch life outside. You can grab small snacks during lunch time, while their pasteis de nata are just irresistible.

The people behind the bar are smiling and uncomplicated. Ask them for their hard-to-find beers and liquor selections (such as the Tegernsee beer and the Monkey’s gin). The location is small (even after expansion), but cosy and super relaxing attracting many guests. Standing inside, but eventually outside on the sidewalk in front of the bar even in the winter, brings the crowd closer and stimulates a friendly and flirty atmosphere.
