Strawanza

dive bar exterior
Obere Königstraße 34
96052 Bamberg
Tel:

Bamberg station 700m

Opening hours:
I see from 13:00 to 18:00 on Google Maps (and just about everywhere else) but I’d say don’t go before 21:00 to be safe. I’ve certainly never seen it open during the day.

Strawanza is perhaps the quirkiest of Bamberg’s pubs and would qualify in its own self-proclaimed dive bar category.  There’s some seating along the wall and a couple of tables in the back but the main action seems to be at the bar where the owner holds court and pours from the barrel. These change and are advertised on a chalk board. On the night we were there, he had Schroll’s Trüber Hammel Pilsner from Nankendorf. Yes, you aren’t going to see this much of anywhere and reason alone for going. If you’re looking for a nightcap, look no further.
