While Fridays are dedicated to a certain motto, things get really speedy across all musical sectors in the old NDR television broadcasting building, restored in 2003, on Thursdays and Saturdays. Every taste will find its suitable music corner here. Who wants to go out at Saturday night in Rostock goes to the LT-Club! By the way - students pay less entrance! The drink prices are student-friendly too and the large outdoor area is an invitation to relax and supplies hungry guests with tasty food from the barbecue.
