The 5 most classy cocktail bars in Munich

1) Roosevelt

A completely relaxed, classic American bar. They pride themselves on their incredible selection of fine rum. Drinks and cocktails mixed with panache by the barman. A nice neighbourly feel.

2) Bruckmann's

This bar is well hidden on a quiet side street. A cosy place for a fun evening. The drinks are fantastic, you can enjoy a few special snacks too. A place for adults in their thirties and forties, to drink and party and enjoy the nightlife. If you turn up early, you can sit outside for a while.

3) Salon Pitzelberger

The Gärtnerplatz theater and its recently-opened cellar bar, is located in the centre of the hip Glockenbachviertel. DJs play sets here and the theatre audience mixes with night owls. A bit sophisticated but still very cosy.

4) Goldene Bar

A must-visit. Sit inside, among the gold and mahogany and the warm lighting or outside, on the spacious terrace. Either way you’ll love it. It's part of Haus der Kunst. After 8 pm, you must enter via the terrace at the back of the museum.

5) Kongressbar

The 1950s are alive and kicking. Elegant wood panelling, perfectly designed fifties furniture and discreet jazz music in the background create a relaxed and stylish ambience. Once upon a time the bar was part of the city's convention centre. Today, this time capsule lives on.
