Don’t be put off by the somewhat shabby interior of this bar and art gallery—back in 1916, it was the birthplace of the Dada art movement. The watering hole, formed as a "protest against the madness of the times," was frequented by the most avant-garde musicians, thinkers, artists, and literati of the era. Today’s "Dadahaus" (as the locals call it) remains a hip place for a beer at the heart of the quirky Niederdorf district. During the day, the upstairs duDA bar is a place for students to meet for a coffee, or to read or study. By night, the bar is often the venue for countless art exhibitions, theatrical revues, lectures, and poetry readings. The selection of absinthes here is especially strong.
