Outward external impression is a bit less than impressive, but pushing through the rotating doors leads to a surprise of traditional interior, dark wood, high ceilings with historic pictures. The usual bare wooden top tables, with benches and stools. Got the impression that more local folk use this bar than some of the others and with good reason. The Kolsch is very good, slightly malty taste, fresh, light bodied, very drinkable. Service from the waiter who was working our table was a bit slow (he seemed more interested in his cigarette!) but OK. Food was good value and traditional German, and what we had was very good. The menu not as extensive as some of the brewery bars, as the beer comes first here. Highly recommended.

Dark windows and the rotating door make the entrance in the place kind of mysterious. Once inside, you discover a totally not fancy atmosphere, which is actually what makes the bar look cool. Very quiet and basic atmosphere, like an old-style neighborhood pub. Nice wooden tables, no real decoration except for all the wooden furnitures. Very few people when I went, in the mid afternoon. Service was fast and almost friendly, which is quite rare in Cologne from my experience. Waiters seemed to be having an argument in the back of the room, but that just added to the family like atmosphere of the place. Didn't get to try their food. A good stop.

The establishment is less than 100m from the Heumarkt Bahnhaltstelle for the 1,7,8,or 9 lines. From taxi or foot it is right across the tracks from the Altstadt or roughly a 150-200m walk from the Scholade Museem. Look for big red letters that say 'Malzmühle'.

Upon enterance one can tell that Malzmühle was very recently redone. But they have done very much to preserve the historical qualities of the establishment. The table particularly add a class touch--they are simply sanded beer-soaked tables that you can picture generations of men throwing back round after round over.

The beer has little equal. For further description please read the review. The food is also extremely good. The restaurant specializes (quite appropiately) on Rhineland and other German dishes. For the non German speaker their menu can be alot to handle. But, in my opinion, after eating there a few times, one can not go wrong with any choice.
