    My favourite place is Hofbräuhaus, the huge beer hall. There you meet people from all over the world singing, dancing, eating and drinking beer: oans, zwoa..gsuffa..or how it was in Bavarian..
    There are quite many clubs you can dance salsa and merenque. Try them..at least they are my favourite places after Hofbräuhaus..then I also liked Schwabing..

    This beer hall has existed since 1644. It is a great experince to come into this hall. Here you can buy beer and food. Here you easy will come in contact with other tourists, you can listen to oom-pah music and Lederhosen. Beaware that tables with a note saying 'Stammtisch' are reserved for regulars.

    Hofbrauhaus, the most famous beerhouse in Munich, is a haven for world travelers. Be prepared to share a table, your life story and some good times. Crowds of singing, swaying people fill the hall to hear the dueling trumpets, drink the brew and feast on local specialties. Go upstairs to enjoy the food with less emphasis on entertainment.

    Dress Code: Anything goes

    I'm a drinking lightweight, but the beer gods would be proud of me. It's like one big american drinking party inside of there complete with the occasional fat Bavarian singing while pausing briefly to yell at someone, burp, puke, or fart. Not for the faint of heart.

    Dress Code: Don't wear anything you don't want Beer on.

    HOFBRAUHAUS: (is it correct?), not only a restaurant but a place where to spend a whole evening, maybe not the best food but a lot of fun sure!
    Also have a look to my Hofbrauhaus night travelogue

    Hofbräuhaus
    This belover beer hall has existed since 1644
    and lives up to its reputation: beer, food,
    tourists, oom-pah music, drunken revelry and
    Lederhosen. Check out the wall of beer steins,
    personalized and locked away for their owners.
    Note: Tables lebeled with 'Stammtisch' are
    reserved for regulars (this is true for all Bavarian
    restaurants).

    In München steht 'n Hofbräuhaus.....

    If you like drinking overpriced beer in overcrowded surroundings, visit Munich for the Oktoberfest. If you prefer a more pleasurable drinking experience, however, visit one of the city's famous beerhalls at any other time of the year. While the Hofbräuhaus attracts the tourists, the locals tend to prefer the Augustinerkeller. Since it can accommodate 5000 happy drinkers - and there's a play area for children - you should find a place to sit for a foaming Stein or two!

    dont miss the hoffbrau house...

    by traveler_007 Written Aug 24, 2002

    dont miss the hoffbrau house ..sit down with about 1500 people for a mug of beer and some polka music.. go to the members table and say hi to gunther and archibald! I'm shure they'll broast with you several times (untill your crawling out of there) look around on the ceiling and notice the painted zwastikas, the story goes(accorrding to archibald) that adolf hitler got the swastika idea for his third riech from sitting in the hoffbrau house and gazing up at the ceiling....? jl

    Yes, it's a tourist trap and a little bit surreal, but can anyone really say they've experienced Munich without a visit to it's most famous beercellar, the Hofbrauhaus?

    Dress Code: Lederhosen.

    Haufbrahaus: Fun at the Beerhouse

    by jltan Updated Oct 19, 2002

    Have a mug or two at this beer house. It's so much fun communing on a table with a bunch of strangers (other tourists and locals). The 'live folk music' is fun too!

    Though none of the Munich VT contingent would set foot in the place, deeming it too touristy, I had a great time there in 1988 and their Maibock was divine.

    Dress Code: Beer mug, big pretzel ensemble.

    It is like Oktoberfest every day/night of the week...I think it must be one of the most famous pubs in the world. It seats about 500 people
