The story began in 1973, when the architect Uwe Pay Hoffmann opened the "Oktober Cafe". Hoffmann had come to Bielefeld from Berlin the year before with the planning community of the University of Berlin. The trigger of the trip to the restaurant was for him the revolt of students approaching, dull, which looks like a landscape of pubs in town. It was inspired by the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 in Russia to take the name of "Oktober Cafe". The new host role so pleased Hoffmann that he quickly left his job as an architect under construction. Everyone is invited to the opening party and then the operators have changed. At one point, "Prawda" was standing over the door and finally, "Colon". Many restaurateurs have tried their luck under this name. The last farmer bid farewell in 2016 and went to the east of the city. Now, "the law and the order" should reign on the Detmolder Straße. The opening is this Friday from 17 hours. Bastian and Nicolai Brauner invite all those who wish to get to know the new restaurant.
