John Cranko Lounge

Our John Cranko Lounge is located directly at the main station, in the middle of the pulsating  capital Stuttgart.
Our bar in the Althoff Hotel am Schlossgarten offers space for great conversations, after-work drinks with colleagues or an English tea time in the afternoon.
Our bar menu includes classic drinks, unusual cocktails and high-quality spirits. From 6 p.m. the light is dimmed so that you can end the day in a perfect lounge atmosphere. Do you have any special wishes? Just get in touch with us. Our bar manager Karol Bernacki and team are at your disposal and will be happy to advise you.

"Place to be" for all friends of good taste

Start your day with a delicious latte macchiato, exchange with business partners, meet good friends, enjoy a sparkling glass of champagne or a freshly tapped Pilsner for after-work - we offer you all this in our John Cranko Lounge.

The most modern bar culture and an appealing ambience - this is the only way to do justice to the name giver. John Cranko, the great choreographer, staged the Pas de deux at the Stuttgart Ballet like no other. Just like him, we attach great importance to harmonies and clear lines and thus create a relaxed atmosphere that everyone can enjoy day or night.

Our bar chef Karol Bernacki attaches great importance to homemade ingredients and the relationship to the region - just convince yourself.
