The slogan, with which this pub describes itself is ‘No coffeeshop – No bar – Just Urknall – It´s special’ and I could not agree more. Being established in the early ’90s as a social-romantic and independent cultural center with live music, this place has had a very eventful history, about which I will never be an adequate story-teller. Just go there and discover it on your own!
Superficially, the Urknall looks like a typical alternative ‘punk pub’ now, but it has so much more to offer. You can watch national and international football matches, participate in regular pub quizzes, play different and funny board games and listen to great and diversified music. No matter what you choose to do, you will like the folksy atmosphere with friendly barkeepers and open-minded guests.
Next to all kinds of beverages you can have very good snacks, like toasts and baguettes, and some other Mexican-style dishes like chili con carne or nachos. Of course you can get a proper German ‘Currywurst’ if you want as well.
Located in the very heart of Eimsbüttel, you can choose to sit outside, in the pub or in the smoker’s lounge.
