    Kult Fabric: Dance to the beat of a different drum

    by WeeScotishLassie Written Oct 16, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    AWESOME. In what seems to have been an industrial park, and what very well may have been, you can find people dancing through 4 in the morning. Even mid-week, on a rainy wednesday night this place is packed. With over 35 different dance spots die Kult Fabric has every kind of music for everyone's taste. (Keep in mind, though, that not every club is open every night.) The music is always good and the people relatively young (20 to about 27) and are some of the more attractive I saw while I was in Munich for the 4 weeks. I had an awesome time!

  • Ca Va: One of my favourite places

    by sabsi Written Aug 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This casual bar/cafe/pub thingie in Munich's westend is one of my favourite places for a quiet night.

    It's popular, it's big, it's cheap and it's cosy somehow. I can hang around for hours here. The good thing is that after hanging around here for hours you aren't broke as in many other bars. Prices are very reasonable here.

    Don't try to get a drink or the bill late in the evening though. Staff can get very slow then, and you can sit here for quite a long time without being noticed by anybody. Which is strange as before it's the other way around and you get a new drink as soon as you have finished an old one.

  • Cafe am Beethovenplatz: Classix and Jazz

    by sabsi Written Aug 25, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe am Beethovenplatz is a huge and busy cafe with a traditional "Kaffeehaus" atmosphere as well as live music every evening (on Sundays it takes place not in the evening but in the mornings mostly). The music is mostly classical or Jazzy stuff but sometimes there's other themes as well.

    And also during the day this is a good and popular place to have a coffee and a cake and to enjoy the atmosphere.

    In the same building there's also the Hotel Mariandl which looks great (in case you don't only need a coffee but also a room ;)

    Club Kalinka: Club Kalinka

    by jeoren Written Aug 23, 2005

    If it weren't for the lack of prostitutes you'd think you're in a trendy Moscow club. It's dark with red velvet curtains, seats are arranged on the fringes, beautiful girls dance on the bar and much of the music is Russian pop spun by Russian DJs. Thankfully, apart from the big Lenin head at the door and a few flags, the kitsch has been kept to a minimum.

    Admission €6.

    Palais Club: the smallest house club in Munich

    by cedros_vermelhos Updated May 29, 2005

    In the 80ies the Palais was a kind of noble tabledance club with well-known guests. A few years ago it became one of the best (and also smallest) house clubs of Munich.
    They did not change much in interior, so there are still glitter, plush and this special noble underground flair from its earlier times...

    Music: house and electronic only, great Resident-DJs: Suat G. (BamBam Rec., Klick Rec.) and Pit (Pearls Project). Often well-known or newcomer DJs from all over the world, great parties and the heat of the night... Thank God they have air condition!!! ;-)

    The picture I added shows the entrance area, a small lounge corner. Then you go up the stairs where you find two rooms, one with bar and seatings, the other is the dancefloor.

    more pictures:

    Dress Code: it's real house scene - so coat and tie would be out of place. better is funky/ stylish streetwear - but the door is not too hard at all

    Cord Club: Bar and Club - stylish and funky

    by cedros_vermelhos Updated May 27, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Really cool club with bar, lot of seatings and great music - house, funk, electronic, retro, pop, soul --> see programme on their homepage
    The club is owned by the same people which also made "Atomic Café" - so you'll find similiarities in atmosphere and people. Average age is 20-30. On weekends you pay entrance, weekdays not.
    The club is on 1st floor, 2 sides are completely windowed, so you can sit there and watch the busy nightly street.

    Dress Code: no special dress code - sometimes you have to wait at the door if it's crowded, but not due to your clothes. You should not come "overdressed" like as you would go to P1 - also no problem, but you might be the only who is dressed like this ;)

    Augustiner Bierhalle: Better beer than Hofbrau Haus

    by susiederkins Updated May 6, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the beer hall I frequented most during my second stay in Munich (the first time I went to the Augustiner tent at Oktoberfest). The beer here is lovely, with the usual choice of regular beer, dunkel (which I like), and weissbier (which I drank the most of).

    The hall is huge - much larger than it looks when you first enter. It stretches back for ages, and is filled with massive tables that can seat an army. There are antlers decorating the walls, which lends a very Bavarian feel to this place. We tried a bit of the food, but just the beer-snacky stuff, and it was tasty.

    If it's a nice day you can sit outside in the sun and watch the world go by. Given that it's on the main (pedestrian only) shopping street, it makes for a nice environment to sip your beer. If you're lucky, the string trio will be playing nearby and you can have a great classical soundtrack with your tipple.

    Dress Code: No dress code - come as you are.

    There are 4 beerhalls in Munich- Lowenbrau, Augustinekeller, Hofbräuhaus, and Hirschgarten. While Hofbrauhaus is the most well known most Bavarians I talked to have the highest regard for Augustinekeller. They say its the best beer and I concur.

  • Nanu: That's what I call a decent Caipirinha!

    by sabsi Updated Apr 4, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place in the westend of Munich is rather unspectacular but is has some funny features:

    (1) It changes decoration once in a while according to different mottos. When I was here the motto was "1001 nights" and the whole place was dressed in oriental style.

    (2) There are different happy hours all through the week. When we were there for just 2.5 Euro more than the regular price you could get a double cocktail. I ordered a caipirinha which - for 9 Euro it came in a flower vase and it took me more than 1 hour to finish it!

    Dress Code: None. There was a strange mixture of people here, anyway.

  • Juleps New York Bar: Great Cocktails & Food

    by sabsi Updated Mar 31, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I knew this small chain of restaurants/cocktail bars as the one in Berlin has been one of my favourites for many years. Now I had the chance to go to the one in Munich. While in Berlin we always concentrated on the food we concentrated on the cocktails this time as it was happy hour (Cocktails for EUR 4.35 all night on Sundays, 5-8 pm the other nights). They all tasted very good and the "typical Juleps atmosphere" was great as usual.

    Dress Code: People are a bit more dressed up but it's ok if you come a bit scruffy ;)

  • Isar Bräu: A train and beer trap

    by sabsi Updated Feb 27, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This brewpub is located in the station building of the Großhesselohe S-Bahn station. When we were coming back from the Waldwirtschaft we had just missed our train back into Munich so we decided to warm up in here and have another beer. It was so nice inside that we missed the next train... and the next ... and the next... etc. Hours later (150 Euro later ;) we then almost missed the train we really wanted to get. Just because I am too German and wouldn't cross the train lines of course...

    Waldwirtschaft: a little evening jazz

    by richiecdisc Written Nov 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waldwirtschaft is not the cheapest of beer gardens, but is surely one of the most scenic, perched high above the River Isar. The food at WW (pronounced V V) may be a bit overpriced but it is tasty. You can also take advantage of the Munich custom of bringing your own food as this is enshrined by law. All you have to do is purchase a beverage and WW offers up both Dunkles and Helles beers (6.50 Euros per liter mug) from the local Spaten brewery. Another hightlight is the seasonal Maibock, offered only in May. Besides serving up these tasty beers, WW offers live jazz, a welcome alternative to the more traditional Bavarian music at other beer gardens.

    Dress Code: Smart but casual, this is the realm of a well to do clientele.

    HRC: for collectors

    by chancay Written Oct 11, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    all around the world you see them, people wearing a shirt or something else of a Hard Rock Cafe somewhere in the world....I must admit I have one as well....although not bought in one of these stores just next to the the articles are quite expensive.... Well, Munich has its HRC as well, just in front of the HB (Hofbräuhaus). Ambience is nice, no doubts but I couldn´t test the food because they (what was very friendly) warned us that at least half an hour waiting time for a burger has to be calculated and we hadn´t have enough time all I guess that HRC lives from its fame they got once....I guess it is not anymore was it has been before.

    Dress Code: whatever

    easyInernetCafe: my favorite place on a rainy night in München

    by dannebro Written Sep 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the old postoffice of Munich at the Hauptbahnhof there is now a very big Internetcafe.

    It is open all day and night, 24 hours a day.

    1 hour at night is only 2,- €
    and a bit more expensive during the day
