Flipper: "Bornheim" Top 5 Page for this destination Frankfurt am Main Nightlife Tip by antistar

Frankfurt am Main Nightlife: 83 reviews and 61 photos

Towards the city from Bornheim Mitte on Bergerstrasse is the excellent cafe bar Flipper. It has great food, great service, and the portions are usually bigger than most people can manage. Although it serves food, I usually hang out here after hours to knock back a beer or two. It's a very relaxed place, and the staff extremely helpful.

On our first night there my friend didn't know where the nearest cigarette machine was, and couldn't understand enough German to get the directions, so the guy just went out and got him a packet. It took him ten minutes, and he came back, put it on a plate with a free box of matches and served it with his next beer. A nice little touch that shows the kind of place this is.

Open from about 9am until 2-3am.

Dress Code: No dress code, but most people here are usually dressed to impress. Scruffy people like me don't get looked down upon, however, like in some places around here :).

Address: Bergerstrasse 86
Directions: U4 to Hohenstrasse, and head back towards the city. It's on your right.
