    Pussers New York Bar: Cosy pub/cocktail/cigar bar

    by poons Updated Mar 12, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Open 18:00 til 03:00.

    We found ourselves visiting this place on two occasions. Once was a night on the cocktails sitting on the stools at the bar - always my favourite as you get to meet some great characters this way.

    The second occasion we headed downstairs where they had a pianist playing. Nice cosy little room - but I must admit I preferred upstairs at the bar.

    A Pusser's Painkiller:

    Created in the tropical paradise of the British Virgin Islands, the painkiller has become the favourite tipple of sailors and landlubbers. Comes in 3 strengths: Nos. 2, 3 & 4.

    Recipe:

    2, 3 or 4 oz Pusser's Navy Rum
    4 oz pineapple juice
    1 oz cream of coconut
    1 oz orange juice
    Serve on the rocks. Stir and grate fresh nutmeg on the top.

    Dress Code: None.

  • Pusser's New York Bar: Painkillers and Pianotunes

    by sabsi Updated Aug 19, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The painkiller cocktails - made with the original Pusser's Rum from the British Virgin Islands - are to die for. They are cold, creamy and served in the traditional cups.

    The atmosphere was quite nice as well with a piano player playing for hours without a break and without repeating one song!

    Dress Code: It's kinda fancy but as we were "friends of the family" we didn't have a problem going even though we just came back from Andechs and weren't dressed up at all.

  • 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 ;)

    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.

    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 ;)

  • Waldwirtschaft: Beergarden Favourites II

    by sabsi Updated Aug 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Too bad I can't add sound to this tip otherwise there would have to be the baaa-ba-ba-ba of Richie's favourite Jazz tune welcoming you here now ;) He had been chewing our ears off about the "WaWi" for quite a while so we were happy to go there on Friday night. Unfortunately there was some rain during the day so the place was kinda empty and a lot of atmosphere was missing. But as promised there were nice beers, a jazzband was playing and the beergarden is in a beautiful neighbourhoood (Großhesselohe - a bit out of town)....

    Dress Code: If you're cold you could always wear a plastic bag if you forgot your jacket at home. Apart from that nothing special.

    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

    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!
