Hello Hotel! The most beautiful restaurants & bars Hamburg hotels

(The Westin Hamburg)

A little bit of everyday luxury. Piece by piece. Sip by sip. Hamburg's hoteliers offer culinary excellence - not only for hotel guests, of course. Which hip hotel restaurants and hotel bars are worth one, two or three visits and why Hanseatics should check into this delicious world themselves.

Bland standard porridge and disdainful tourist talk? You'll look in vain for that in Hamburg's hotels. In the Hanseatic city, people eat and drink in style. Not only in the city's trendy eateries, but also in a wide variety of hotels. And all of this is certainly done in a wonderful, Hanseatic atmosphere - sound hygiene concepts included.

The good old days - enjoyable nostalgia in Hamburg's old town

Many Hamburg establishments look back on a long tradition. Those who want to treat themselves to first-class service with a touch of time travel and exquisite cuisine have a wide choice in Hamburg. First and foremost: the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten on Jungfernstieg, located directly on the Binnenalster lake. Here, people not only meet in the cozy fireside room for tea and pastries - the hotel's own bar is also like an open history book of the Hanseatic city. Those who want to fortify themselves before the selected drinks dive into the basement of the house. Nikkei Nine serves dishes that symbiosis Japanese cuisine with Peruvian influences in a stylish 1950s James Bond atmosphere.

A touch of New York on the Elbe surprises at The Dining Room at Fraser Suites Hotel. In the Art Deco style of the 1920s, there is room for a variety of culinary delights. On weekends, the traditional English roast, the "Sunday Roast," tempts guests to brunch. The main course is served and carved with the help of Henry, the original carving carriage from 1920.

If you want to have a last drink in the golden era of the 20s, you will find the right mixed droplet in the 1910, the bar of the Reichshof Hotel. Good to know: Whiskey varieties from all over the world play first fiddle of enjoyment here. If you prefer crystal-clear rum to your palate without the fuss, the Boilerman Bar at the 25hours Hotel Hamburg Altes Hafenamt is the place to be.

A cozy place with the best view also gives the Atlantic Bar in the internationally known Atlantic Hotel. Beforehand, there is the original Atlantic lobster soup at the Atlantic Grill & Health - an exquisite restaurant with French-based fusion cuisine. Here you can relax and philosophize into the night.

The modern way to dine and drink: Von Alsterblick bis HafenCity

Klassik und Moderne reichen sich in Hamburg die Hände. Seit 2017 bereichert das The Fontenay den Alstergürtel. Das Luxushotel mit atemberaubenden Blick über Hamburgs Waterkant verwöhnt Kulinarik-Gäste mit seiner Sterneküche im Lakeside Restaurant. Feine, unaufgeregte Gerichte mit geschmacklicher Komplexität machen den Besuch im Lakeside zur Gourmet-Stunde. Freund*innen kurzer Wege genießen im Anschluss auf der hauseigenen Panoramaterrasse in der Fontenay Bar Drinks, die die international renommierte Bar Crew kredenzt. Hier verfliegt der frisch angebrochene Abend mit einer sanften Brise in den Haaren im Nu.

Für alle, die von Herzen auf faire Steaks fliegen, ist die (M)eatery die erste Wahl. Im Hamburger Side Hotel Zuhause, brutzelt das Restaurant-Team im original Southbend Grill bestes Beef. Brandheißer Tipp: Im Sommer werden auf der Dachterrasse abwechslungsreiche Barbecue-Abende zelebriert.

Ähnlich saftig geht es auch im Heritage im Hotel Le Méridien einher. In edlem, legeren Ambiente speisen Fleisch-Fans Dry-Aged-Steak aus dem 800-Grad-Ofen und bekommen handgemachten Käse gereicht. On top: Im neunten Stock des Hotels erwartet die Gäste ein majestätischer Weitblick.

Flying high: These Hamburg hotel restaurants & bars are flying high!

When it comes to the "perfect view," you're unfortunately spoiled for choice in the Hanseatic city. Or, rather, the opportunity to spend many, delicious evenings at different, heaven-kissing favorite places. In the city center and around the harbor, there are a number of high places that let their guests take off.

The highest view over the city, at 126 meters, is at Weinbar26 in the Radisson Blu Hotel. Here you can find wines from all corners of the world and delicious cheese. Always good: Plan an extended evening stroll in Hamburg's oldest park, Planten un Blomen, in advance.

Not far from the Landungsbrücken is the Tower Bar, founded in 1987 and part of the Hotel Hafen Hamburg. With a perfect panoramic view, the evening sun glistens over the Elbe River all the way into your cocktail glasses. With over 70 cocktails on the menu, the evening can get long. Starry skies and harbor sparkle included.

Numbers please: A 20-meter-long bar, with 7-meter-deep panoramic windows at a height of 96 meters. Wow! That's 20up, the Empire Riverside Hotel's skyline bar. Situated between the Landungsbrücken and the Reeperbahn party mile, here the view-eyes are beaming with the lights of the night. Those who want to end the evening on a full culinary note can enjoy cocktails as well as sushi specialties from Hamburg's best-known sushi master Chantira Tuk Bedick.

Fine food and the best drinks also fascinate at Fang & Feld with its adjacent Blick Bar. Located in The Westin Hamburg, this pearl in the neighborhood of the Elbphilharmonie surprises with the finest fish creations and selected cocktails that sweeten every sundowner evening mood.
