BAYLEAF COLOGNE

„The most culinary bar in Cologne“

The Bayleaf is a high-quality cocktail bar and at the same time a restaurant. So we are a restobar.

Our reputation as the “most culinary bar in Cologne” (Carsten Henn, KStA, November 2016) rushes ahead. Thus, we are concentrating on the concept developed by owner Daniel Gottschlich (Ox & Klee) in 2016 to open the Bayleaf: Food Pairing – the combination of fine dining dishes with high-quality cocktails.

Falstaff ratet Bayleaf with 90 points:
“Bar chef Michael Elter is an eminent authority in hier field.”

„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.“

Food Pairing is our figurehead. As menu for dinner or with high quality barsnacks in between.

Food

Our Food Pairing Menu (from 6.00pm)

The Bayleaf is one of the first bars in Germany dedicated to the topic of Food Pairing. This is the combination of flavors in food and cocktails. Michael Elter creates fine cocktails with seasonal ingredients to fine dining dishes from the forge of two-star-chef Daniel Gottschlich and the team of Ox & Klee.

Our menus change regularly. Three to six courses with fine dining dishes accompanied by corresponding cocktails. We are especially proud of our non-alcoholic drink accompaniment, which is also matching to the courses and is created with great care and great effort from fresh, extraordinary ingredients. You have the choice!

Drinks

Whether classic or avant-garde, you decide!

Through his years of experience as an IHK bar master, he is able to present classics, personal creations and also non-alcoholic cocktails in a top quality to our guests.
