Packed with artists and ateliers, Glockenbachviertel is where you'll find cutting-edge design, the city's gay community and anything but a conservative Bavarian capital. The roads around Gärtnerplatz are bustling with bars, eateries and one-of-a-kind stores
- Aroma Kaffeebar München: Glockenbach's first coffee bar in the neighborhood and local hangout for good coffee and delicious breakfast.
- emilo: Whether you want a good coffee "zum Geh" (to go) or "um Bleiben", this tiny café serves coffee roasted in Munich. Don't let the small space fool you- emilo has grown into a well-known Munich coffee roastery, now selling in major stores including Käfer and KaDeWe.
- Cantine Cantona: Opened by the same trio as The Flushing Meadows Hotel, the restaurant Cantine Cantona serves regional-farm-to-table dishes. Don't miss their Banging Brunch, every Saturday.
- Flushing Meadows Bar: located on the top 4th floor of The Flushing Meadows hotel is the hotel's bar. It's very popular with locals so can get very crowded, especially on summer evenings with the terrace. Be aware: the outside terrace closes early (10:00 PM).
- Chic Dich: this boutique was opened in 2015 by two sisters, Rebekka and Doro with a passion for selected fashion and personal styling. Their clothing assortment is never final, both are constantly sourcing small labels and new out-of-the-ordinary pieces. Expect jewelry from a talented designer from Israel, hand-picked individual designer clothes and personal attention.
WHERE TO STAY
- The Flushing Meadows: Speaking about this hotel with someone he's told me staying here feels like staying local with friends. With only 16 rooms and some with terraces, this indeed is a home-away-from-home. Built on the top two floors of a former post office building from the 1920s by Bavarian architect Robert Vorhoelzer, the hotel is located in Munich's vibrant neighborhood Glockenbach quarter. For drinks and breakfast head to the rooftop bar, stunning views over Munich included.
