Good food, good beer, grungy dungeon atmosphere. Locals friendly and food very good. I was there for a conference dinner so no idea what it's like on a typical night, but I'd give it another try.

During WGT it is a haven for any goth from around the world. A labyrinth of music and ambiance. Gorgeous old building. I'd love to see what it's like during a regular evening. During WGT it was amazing.

We've only been here when the annual Wave Gotik Treffen festival is on and this is one of the venues, so it's packed. If we came outside of the festival we'd come back here though, as it's one of our favourite places in the city. Situated at the base of the MDR tower, next to Augustusplatz and with a small... More

This venue has a bistro where you can select food from the hot plate and it's served to you immediately, along with your drinks. You can see what you're getting, there's lots of options (including a vegetarian and vegan selection) and food is available whenever the venue is open. It's reasonably priced and a nice place to be.

Great place and you can have excellent drinks on a good atmosphere. Food side is not the best choice: always the same menu. For one week was possible to have only chili and spaghetti. If you need eat late because at the party there is ok but don’t come there for a dinner.

Had a closing party at a professional meeting. Great place, it was a bomb shelter during world war II. The food was so and so. But free beer! Great music! Usually frequented by university students

The Linc Congress social event. It lies in an underground athmosphere, but very comfortable. Usual drinks for free. The worst is the event ends too soon

Make sure you go out on the terrace and look over the city. YOU are very high up and at a small cost can not remember how much it is well worth the view

Great atmosphere at night, with DJs and different music rooms but also good food during the day. You cannot leave Leipzig without seeing this place. Meeting point for students (germans and foreigns). Just in front of the University, with a very interesting history inside. A must see!
