Bars and clubs

Not many options for having a long night out in Tønder, unless you hit the festival. But these places normally see a relatively large crowd, especially friday and saturday. Thursdays get busy sometimes too, but it's pretty much hit and miss.

  • Queens [1], located just next to Cafe Victoria, this small club ocasionally offers special events and gets quite crowded. The music is what you would expect, nothing great but makes for a decent night.
  • Central Halle, a small bar popular with the old timers as well as the "gymnasium" students. Definitely the best place to talk to people and play billard (not pool!). Can get pretty rowdy at times and is often very crowded in the wee hours, or just after a party at the gymnasium has ended.
  • Cafe Victoria [2], a good place to get some food and enjoy a couple of beers. Thursday from 10-11pm as well as Friday afternoon is "Blaa Time" (Blue Hour), where beers are half price.
