  • 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 ;)

    Tram party: Tram parties

    by diageva Written Mar 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One night I saw something very funny. It was a Tram, like any other that circulate at Munich .. but this one was full of people dancing and drinking while the tram was moving. I don't know what it was, if it was a private party or a moving disco, but it was very funny.

    Isar Edge: Isar Edge

    by diageva Updated Mar 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For me the better nightlife tip at Munich is walking along Isar edge. Munich is incredible beautiful at night. You will find people making joggin, romantic pairs, people with dog ... but ... its quite. The sound of the water, the lights of the city, and the way makes magic the walk ...

    I used to go alone there at night ... nothing better!!!

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

    by globetrott Written Sep 2, 2004

    4.5 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

    4.5 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 !

  • 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 ;)

  • 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 pub....here 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 anymore.......at 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

  • 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 ;)

    Flirt Party: Colosseum

    by Fen Updated Sep 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Colosseum is the larger concert hall in the Kunstpark Ost in what used to be an industrial warehouse (like practically everything in this area). Comedy, jazz, pop and rock concerts take place here, as do musicals and other events. Club nights provide a good opportunity to meet members of the opposite sex and once a month there is the Mega Flirt Party with a love wheel, a flirting office, games and plenty of music.

    Dress Code: open hours: From 10pm daily

    This could be fun.....

    Muffathalle: Unique Music Venue

    by dcwizard Written Mar 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whenever I travel, I try to catch a live music performance if I can. I was lucky to find a wonderful live venue and catch a pretty good show when I visited Munich: the Muffathalle. Originally a well station to regulate Munich's water supply, and later a power plant, the Muffathalle now provides a unique venue for live music and other cultural performances. I saw Chumbawamba perform an all-acoustic and acappella set. Yes, a far cry from their big hit "Tubthumping," but I was surprised by their sheer musicality and political edge. If any of you were able to catch the French band Air during their Muffathalle show in Munich on March 2 (or anywhere during their current tour), let me know how it was!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    A few decades back there were a number of really fun spots I could have pointed out to you in Schwabing and environs. They have disappeared or have been replaced.

    Zenith: Zenith

    by mindcrime Written Feb 6, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On a cold Saturday evening we went to Zenith Club to see MOTORHEAD live. It is actually a big cultural center where apart from concert you may attend many exhibitions/fairs and parties. It is housed on an old railway construction/reparation hall that was built in 1916!

    The main hall can house about 7,000 people, the night we saw MOTORHEAD it was sold out but still there was space to move around, what was difficult/almost impossible was to order a beer as there were always long queues at the bars.

    We had to wait for some minutes outside in the cold as they had to check bags at the entrance. Once inside we watched ANTHRAX and the main act which was MOTORHEAD of course. It was a great night as expected.
