Brasserie & Lounge
Old photographs, maritime art and countless objects from the world of seafaring, there is always something to discover in Willi's. Enjoy the particular charm of our historic pub, preferably with a freshly drawn Pilsen draft beer! Name giving is our very own founder of the Hotel Hafen and king of St. Pauli, Willi (Wilhelm) Bartels, who in his days loved the company of his guests and was often to be found amongst them in the brasserie.
Willi's is the best starting point possible for an unforgettable musical evening or a stroll through the nightlife of the St. Pauli quarter.
Even the menu reflects the seafaring flair of the pub. The meals are hearty: pink- roasted roast beef with remoulade sauce and fried potatoes finds its place on the menu alongside crispy fried potatoes with herring and apple-onion sour cream.
Our lounge is the perfect place for meetings and good company – situated directly opposite the pub itself. The large fireplace and seating in the style of large cruise ships of days long past help give the lounge its maritime yet modern ambiance. In memory of Willi Bartels, the founder of the hotel, the area bears the name “Willi’s Lounge".
We look forward to your visit!
