The Spider and the Max

Part of Hagen's success story in the 80s was the incredibly rich and above all humming nightlife. For night owls from the whole region, Hagen became a favorite place to go out. Especially on weekends almost every pub was packed. One of the main places for those who wanted to go out was the so-called Bermuda Triangle on Rathausstraße. Among other things, the Ratskeller was located here. A rustic vault, the above-average long bar and a strange tree in the middle of the restaurant made up the pub. But there were also other popular bars here, the "Spinne", the "Max", the Rose of Westphalia. Even today, this corner of the city at Friedrich-Ebert-Platz is a charming place to linger. However, there are more delicious gastronomy and nice cafés to discover than beer fountains from countless taps. Most of the former cult pubs are now closed. The "Spinne" has survived. Although it has become more civilised and concentrates on good food, this primary rock is definitely worth a visit.
