A mainstay of edgy Hamburg nightlife since the 1990s, when it was a pioneer in spreading electronic music across Europe, the Golden Pudel is a grotty free-standing building on the Elbe riverbank, flanked on one side by a gentrified restaurant strip and on the other by DayGlo-painted squatter housing. Inside is a pair of tiny, graffiti-covered rooms where you'll hear a mix of hip-hop, electronica, and rock, depending on the night. Summer means heading out into the garden, with its long, much-abused wooden benches. The doorman may or may not decide to impose a nominal cover charge, the crowd is utterly heterogeneous, and it's definitely the place to go if you want to feel like an insider.
