No sleek modern bar interior nonsense here – at Fes it looks like nothing has changed for decades, and that's just how the regulars like it in this legendary Kassel bar beside the grand old post office building. Fun-seeking locals keep returning year after year for the consistently excellent music and cocktails, and visitors are made to feel welcome too. In summer the action spills happily out onto the street. The bar might be 2247km (if you happen to travel like a crow) from its namesake, but the carefree atmosphere of the gateway to the Sahara is happily replicated right here in the heart of Germany. Fes manages to be dependable yet entirely unpredictable — exactly how a night out on the town should be.
