    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...

    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

    Marienplatz & Pedestrian zone: make a stop-over on your train-ride !

    by globetrott Written Sep 2, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It might be a great idea to make a stop-over in Munich, when your train passes by at night on your way to Salzburg or Italy....
    Get out of the train do some walking in Munich and take the next train to go on...

    Within a 15 minutes walk you get from the Hauptbahnhof to Marienplatz, everything is lighted untill around midnight or even longer.
    You pass by great buildings, may sit in one of the nice garden-cafes, listen to the street-musicians (untill 11.00p.m.) or simply search for the great architecture.

    On Marienplatz you walk on towards the old townhall and after 2oo meters you turn to the left in order to see Hofbräuhaus.

    Dress Code: NO special dresscode, not even for Hofbräuhaus...

    From Karlsplatz to Marienplatz: Musicians in the pedestrian zone

    by globetrott Updated Sep 2, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favorite nightlife-spot in Munich is the pedestrian zone with all its great street-musicians untill late at night.

    Officially it might be too late for music in the streets but most of them sing inside the empty halls of the big shops, where the accoustic is even better than in the street.

    Mostly they are tolerated by the police, but will have to finish around 11.00p.m.

    Dress Code: NO dresscode required of course, just a few coins for the artists !

  • Augustinerkeller: Beergarden Favourites

    by sabsi Updated Aug 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Augustinerkeller Beergarden is located near Munich's main station. It's beautiful because you feel like you are sitting in a middle of a forest - definitely not like in the middle of town.

    We had a nice little picnic here with big beers, Pretzels, raddish, cooked chickes and Richie's homemade Obatzter. Thanks for the wonderful dinner, R and D!

    This is also the place where a famous VTer lost his mother tongue suddenly after too many beers in the heat ;)

    Amazeum: Imax

    by yashiko Written Jun 20, 2004

    We went to see a movie about underwaterlife in a coralriff. It was at the Imax movies. It was the first time that I went to see a 3D movie. Kind a weird. Or it were the glasses or just me, but most off the time it was just 2D. I think it was just me. I'm not so good in these optical art stuff anyway. But it was kind a fun to do it .
    There is also just a regular kino where they play movies.
    It costed about 8.50 euro to see the imax movie.

    Schumans: Middle-aged meat market

    by sjvessey Written Jun 9, 2004

    Schumans used to be a dark, smokey claustrophobic hang-out. Apparently something of an institution. But they closed down and moved elsewhere and the new place couldn't be more different. Bright, high ceilings, flashy. And with a clientele whose average age must be pushing 40 (which by definition means that there's a lot of people well over 40 in there). This is the place to go if you're looking to meet someone a little more experienced...
