439 An institution among the Schanzen bars
An institution among bars and pubs between Schanze and Elmsbüttel. Since the 1980s, the 439 is a laid-back meeting place for musicians, artists and people from the neighbourhood.
At one time it was notorious as the last stop-in for a drink while on the way home. It still fulfils this aim. Which doesn’t mean that one can’t also enjoy a civilised evening with a generously poured Irish whiskey and good swing-and-soul sounds. But there’s no sign of the hysteria that rules in some nearby in-locales.
