Kaiserslautern’s tallest building is all business…at least until 17:30 each day when 21 Lounge opens its doors.
21 Lounge, located on – you guessed it – the 21st floor, is the best place in the city to have a drink and a meal with a view.
Whenever friends from the U.S. visit, I always insist that we head up to the Lounge for a cocktail or dinner. I think it’s a great way to show off my new home and some of its highlights from the top of the world.
I love to time my visits with the sunset, especially in the summer months. In the warmer months, you have the option to dine al fresco, something I can’t wait to try out in the coming weeks.
The ambiance is definitely 21 Lounge’s biggest selling point, but its drink and food selection help make the experience something to remember.
The menu changes, but the pastas – a menu staple — are quite enjoyable especially if you like a spicier sauce. It is also one of the few places in town to get a quality seafood dish. If available, the mussels are a must try.
The handcrafted cocktails take some time, but it’s always worth it to go with the 21 Lounge’s cocktail of the day. Or if you are more like me, you know that the extensive wine list (and their staff’s recommendations) will never let you down.
It is best to call ahead and get a reservation so you are guaranteed a table next to the window. What’s the point of a restaurant with a view if you are stuck inside at a middle table?
Another helpful hint: Bring cash. They don’t accept credit cards at 21 Lounge. And be sure to let them know that Go K-town sent you!
