Visit during the day to see the splendour of the city unfold in front of you, or the drama of a spectacular sunset, and visit at night to see the city sparkle. This place has live TV, a summer bbq, post-match parties and an open-air terrace with panoramic views. It’s also within walking distance of many famous landmarks including the Fritz Walter Stadium.
In general, I can recommend Kaiserslautern to all English-speaking visitors, due to the tradition of having the American forces around for 50 years, everybody is used to speaking English; and English-speaking guests are often particularly welcome since the town hasn't got much other industry and relies heavily on the income from the "base" in Ramstein and the neighbouring supporting military units.
For a post-lunch digestive drink or late-night cocktails, the Gusto bar is the place to be, preferably BEFORE closing time of the regular pubs (1am weekdays, 2am weekends), when it can become very crowded.
At weekends, personal knowledge of the doorman may be required after hours so make sure you arrive early if you want a really late night and some of the most attentive waiting staff I've experienced in Kaiserslautern.
Nights out are pretty cheap, cheerful and can be very late if so required. My personal favourite for studenty atmosphere is the Benderhof in Richard-Wagner-Strasse, they also serve a mean and affordable breakfast buffet on Saturdays and Sundays.
