Wilhelm Hoeck 1892

Even at opening time, there always seem to be a few locals getting the day’s drinking off to a good start. Dark and atmospheric, this bar looks every bit as old as its name suggests.

The musty surrounds include an enormous array of mysterious, odd-shaped spirit bottles stacked on shelves behind the bar. More bottles and some oak barrels are built into the back wall, while more pack an ornate glass cabinet high on the wall opposite the bar.

This is now two pubs for the price of one, since it opened a non-smoking restaurant next door, serving high-class German cuisine. Draught beer is poured very slowly here, as it should be, so be prepared to wait, and consider ordering your second well before you’ve finished your first.
