Anyway, the bar is right next door to Thursty Nelly's, another bar that is well-known with military personnel and most, if asked, will know where it is, so you can easily find Urstubb, if lost. Also, around the block, only like 100', is a knock off Hard Rock Cafe or House of Blues. That's how much fun this place, Urstubb, was and how much I ended up drinking there - I can't remember much beyond the party inside.
The German patrons wouldn't let us leave! They knew what to order and refused to take no for an answer. We kept doing rails, and shots I'd never heard of, as we listened to German versions of American favorites on the jukebox, and we danced in the aisles. All this was prompted by the Germans we met in this bar, friends of the owner, a local boxing champ.
Backpacks and walking sticks are some of the items we saw lined up against a wall, left there by some of the patrons who'd come in after a day of hiking. There were the trendy dressers as well. They all seemed to enjoy the ambience of this fun little bar.
Oh, and parking is not a problem as there are parking structures everywhere, including right around the corner from Urstubb, with signs clearly posted out on the streets.
Finally, how much are drinks here, or in this part of Germany, in general? Very inexpensive. A large Hefe Weizen, on tap (my favorite), is only about, converted over, $1.50.
Yum, thinking about it, I would go back to Germany just for the beer.
