„The most culinary bar in Cologne“
The Bayleaf is a high-quality cocktail bar and at the same time a restaurant offering fine dining and tapas.
Our reputation as the most culinary bar in Cologne rushes ahead. (Carsten Henn, KStA, November 2016) Thus, we are concentrating on the concept developed by owner Daniel Gottschlich (Ox & Klee) in 2016 to open the Bayleaf: Foodpairing – the combination of fine dining dishes with high-quality cocktails.
„Der Feinschmecker“ wrote in February 2017:
„Daniel Gottschlich implemented his plan in 2016 and is now one of the pioneers in Germany who combine cocktails with high-quality dishes“
