Bavaria Nightlife

  • Hofbräuhaus

    Munich Nightlife

    When we first arrived at the The Hofbräuhaus am Platzl, we were overtaken by its size. Not only is the first floor immense but on a third floor there are separate large rooms and a stage for large parties. Even mid afternoon in April the place was packed and there was a band playing. Folks were either having late lunches or early dinners. Beer was...

  • General Nightlife Tips

    Munich Nightlife

    I didnt know the name of this festival, but eventually `Lisalu' wrote in and let me know that its called the Tollwood festival. It was like a flea market with lots of colourful stalls with interesting goods and food from different parts of the world... along with music and theater events... Very colourful, very popular and kind of crowded. I`m told...

  • Kunstpark Ost

    Munich Nightlife

    Before you go to Munich, visit www.kunstpark.de. It talks about Kunstpark, the best club scene around. Kunstpark is an old industrial site that was converted into about 20 clubs and bars in 1996. It sees 300,000 visitors every month, making it the largest in Germany and in all of Europe. Downtown Munich has little or no bars or clubs where college...

  • Schwabing

    Munich Nightlife

    Schwabing is probably one of my favorite places in Munich. Lots of cool bars and restaurants. The locals complain that its too touristy, but for a tourist, it feels very local. Located near the University, I find the place to be young and hip, but somewhat upscale. The drink prices are not cheap here, and I don't actually think the students hang...

  • Pusser's

    Munich Nightlife

    There is a bar on the ground floor, and a piano bar downstairs. Beginning at 21:30 hours, Tuesday through Saturday, you can enjoy the intimate atmosphere in the downstairs piano bar. This is my favourite. They serve all kinds of Cocktails, but the spesiality is the Pusser's Painkiller. None

  • Oktoberfest

    Munich Nightlife

    If you are going to the festival - there are a few things you need to know. If you haven't booked a tent (we hadn't) you need to get there early. We arrived at the festival at 10am after a tip from a barman the night before. We got straight into a tent - The Hofbrauhaus tent. Once in the tent the next thing is to get served. firstly the sheer...

  • Augustiner-Keller

    Munich Nightlife

    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.

  • Olympia Park - Olympic Stadium

    Munich Nightlife

    I went to the Dixie Chicks concert in Munich during the first weekend of Oktoberfest 2003 at the Olympia stadium. Easy to get around. Lots of signs to show you where your seat is. It's indoors, and I really dont think there are any bad seats - just ones that are further away. Good sound system - the Chicks sounded better than they do on CD (In my...

  • Günther Murphy's Irish Pub - CLOSED

    Munich Nightlife

    It's where all the irish people hang out in Munich. Great music, fab food and Irish chocolates and crisps on sale too and they play excellent music. And because I knew the barmaid from college, I often got free drink ...which was nice ;-) Smart casual.

  • Backstage

    Munich Nightlife

    Backstage It´s a real alternative. here you meet young people, who don´t swim with the stream. in the summer is an outside beergarden with good music, two rooms where on weekends are parties and concerts. wear what you wanna waer. But if you should decide to wear a tie, you´ll be the only one.

  • P1Nightclub

    Munich Nightlife

    If you are not a member or on the guest list do not bother even trying to get into this club. The Doormen are complete knobs and you are wasting a taxi fare even trying to get into this "exclusive" club

    Visit ANY night in Munich the jazz club "Unterfahrt". Features the best local and international jazz musicians on daily basis. Great music atmosphera and low price. Open: Sunday to Thursdays 19.30 to 1 h Fr./Sa. 19.30 to 3 h

  • Lamms - CLOSED

    Munich Nightlife

    This is a really decent typical German bar/restaurant. The Weissbeer was excellent and the food was tasty, all things you would expect from a fine German establishment. It stays open and serves food seemingly 24 hours a day. This was ideal for us and made a good pre and post match rendevous. Another good thing is that Lamm's is ideally situated...

  • Waldwirtschaft Großhesselohe

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Zenith - Die Kulturhalle

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Bayerisches Nationaltheater

    Munich Nightlife

    National theatre / State ballet Munich has a very high quality ballet, orchestra, opera ensemble and musical theatre. It is always worth the money to try and get tickets for the theatre - they have a couple of venues which are worth a visit for their interior, too! This is i.e. the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz, the Cuivellé-Theater, the...

  • RAW

    Munich Nightlife

    If you like heavy music this tiny pub is great, but I have to say again that it is tiny. We went there on Saturday night and could hardly get inside but they told me its much more confortable the other days. The music is nice (if you like hard/heavy, old and new) and the beer cheap enough (not top quality but noone seemed to care). Simple...

  • Prinzregententheater

    Munich Nightlife

    We were there in December '13 to see the St Petersburg Festival Ballet perform the Nutcracker. A matinee (3:30pm) so lots of families. Very enjoyable. Getting to see a Russian prima ballerina dance the Sugar Plum Fairy is not something you pass up on. Seats were remarkable comfortable - often too small for me in such venues (wide shoulders)....

  • Haidhauser Augustiner

    Munich Nightlife

    Another pub that belongs to the chain of Augustiner Brewery. It's a friendly place near Ostbahnhof which is clearly in the hand of "locals". They serve some great food and the nice Augustiner beers here. The cocktails are cheap but not too nice - but who orders cocktails in a beer pub, anyway? ;-) None.

  • Braunauer Hof

    Munich Nightlife

    Quieter than the nearby Hofbrauhaus, Braunauer is a beergarten with a real authentic feel to it. There was a nice sized beergarden out the back, but it was a little cold for sitting out so we went inside. The food looked good here but as it was on the expensive side and still a little early to eat we stuck to the beers. Paulaner is my favourite...

    Down the street from the 4U Youth Hostel and only 3 min. from the Westbahnhof train station, the Shakespeare Bar is a nice local bar where you can converse with the friendly bartenders Come as you are

  • Sausalitos

    Munich Nightlife

    Sausalitos is a Germany wide chain of Mexican restaurants. There are three branches in Munich; one on Tal in the city center (pictured), a second on Türkenstrasse in Schwabing, and a third bar outdoors in the Hofbräukeller beer garden in Haidhausen. The two indoor bars are both pretty much the same in terms of atmosphere, clientele, food,...

  • Roosevelt-Bar

    Munich Nightlife

    I tried quite a few cocktail bars in Munich and this small bar is definitely the best! The cocktails you get here in a stylish and clear atmosphere are strong but don't taste too strong - they are just perfect. I was dizzy after one Mai Tai already but couldn't stop trying other things.... The choice in the menu is good but not too large. You can...

  • Palais

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • News Cafe - CLOSED

    Munich Nightlife

    This bar is right in the heart of Schwabing. This café has one of the funkiest interior designs on the strip with hip oval-shaped Afro-centric murals on the walls, dark wooden furniture and floors, high backed leather benches, red rectangular lamps hanging above the bar and sofas in the back that resemble a mountain range. Breakfast, sandwiches,...

  • Nanu - CLOSED

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Muffathalle

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Juleps

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Isartaler Brauhaus

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

Well, Munich has its HRC as well, just in front of the HB (Hofbräuhaus). Ambience is...

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Kalinka

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Cafe am Beethovenplatz

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

    Munich Nightlife

    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...

  • Munich's nightlife

    Of course nightlife takes place in the bigger cities everywhere, but Munich has one of the most vibrant nightlives in the whole country. Especially in the party areas around Kunstpark Ost and Schwabing, people party until the morning. Recently I have read that Munich has from all German cities, besides Berlin, the most international concerts in...

  • Other Bavarian cities

    The other big Bavarian cities, like Nýrnberg, Augsburg, Regensburg, etc. all have great nightlife spots as well - you will probably not meet as many celebreties or "hot" people there - but they are usually less expensive than the ones in Munich.

  • small village nightlife....

    This was the place I stopped in to have Lindenbrau's tasty vollbier in Graffenberg. I wanted to go to the brewery and mistook this place for it. It was nonetheless a friendly locals' pub and I'm sure a place for a nice game of cards or nightly chatter over the local brew.
