Irish Pub Fleetenkeiker
An underground local irish pub and needless to say it’s a sports bar. It has multiple screens and showcase multiple important sporting matches but prefers football over all others. They have decent finger food but it’s a little expensive to eat there. All the regular drinks+ Guiness (if you’re a fan) are available there and the place is usually full and has a good ambience. Recommended for sports lovers.
Hamburg is old school that way. Most local stores, bars and even food joints do not accept card. The few that do, also have restrictions like- a minimum of 10 Euro spend or places where only German local cards (GiroKartte) work. Therefore, always good to carry cash

If you plan to do a lot of tourist activities and plan to visit museums and places, I would recommend you to buy the Hamburg Card, which is available at the Hamburg Welcome Centre at the airport and in the city centre. It gives you access to multiple tourist attractions for free and free transport for a couple of days. Depending on how long you stay, you can pay for the card. The basic price is 11 Euros and its usually worth it for short visits.
