Veedelseck Bar & Restaurant
A great hideaway in the heart of Cologne
Ever thought of sitting down for a meal or a drink in a hotel where you’re not actually staying? No? Well, we warmly recommend you try exactly that at Veedelseck at Lindner Hotel City Plaza, a bar and restaurant all rolled into one, conveniently located just off the nightlife-heavy Friesenstraße.
Enjoy the congenial atmosphere in the swanky bar area, or maybe rather a cool Kölsch beer surrounded by greenery in the open-air courtyard. Either way, the well-crafted and intriguingly decorated drinks and cocktails are a sight for sore eyes.
Veedelseck’s food offerings follows a special concept in that the menu has the same look and feel as today’s popular streetfood markets, with a rotating selection of regional and seasonal items to round it off. All told, it’s a great collection of smaller dishes that you can mix and match to your heart’s content, served stylishly and with an eye for detail. The kitchen seems to operate along the lines of “We only do what we do well – our guarantee of quality” and what’s more, it’s creative too. A good anecdote to back that up involves Veedelseck’s Indian chef Rana, for instance. He once threw together a curry for a staff meal one day and they loved it so much the kitchen team decided to spice up the menu with a range of Indian options.
In the summer months, head to Veedelseck for the barbecues on the patio. Groups of between 2 and 20 guests are invited to “chill and grill” the day away. Veedelseck provides various types of meat, kebabs, salads and a variety of bread and dipping sauces. Each table of four gets its own tabletop charcoal barbecue and can do with it what they want – a bit like Swiss fondue.
And in that vein, Veedelseck is a great place to head during the Karneval season, too – every Friday and Saturday night there’s live DJ sets with chillout music on the covered patio.
As you can see, Veedelseck is many things all in one: a feel-good location, a bar, a restaurant and a party hot-spot. Come check it out, you won’t regret it!
