Though there are few quality drinking spots some do exist. The best would be Reporter on Karl Marx - a couple blocks past the town square. The second would be Master Schmidt, which has some live music and is a bit more alternative on Schmidt Street about 3 or 4 blocks up from Karl Marx. For more of a club scene there is Labyrinth and Berlin inquire locally for the exact location. And, if you choose to be really adventurous you can attempt a Metro Party - getting off at each of the 5 metro stops and drinking a drink. Lastly, for more of a local scene you can simply have a drink on the street-- by the river which is a quite nice walk, or just in the city center. This is the custom known as drinking "na lavochke."
