woody. joyful. creative. cozy.

The thought of “I think I am in a forest” does not arise despite the name. The Woods makes you feel at home immediately. The chic cocktail bar that was opened in Cologne’s Friesen district in April 2019 is all about coziness.

In the sense the name does apply though: a custom-made lammellar oak construction conjures a snug forest into the room that offers guests a cozy shelter. Speaking of bar culture: the excellent as well as unusual cocktails are all created in house.

“The focus is on our cocktails. The atmosphere should only underline the joy.”  bar chef Simon Bach
