It's Saturday. Time to go out. How about a ball for example? But you are wrong if you think expensive clothes are a must— even waltzing is out! Instead, you will find Go-Go Dancers, Party music and pure charts.
Having your next event at a club is certainly ideal for the twenty-something whose looking for an enjoyable night out without being the host. The only problem is if you have the money for it. Badeanstalt can take care of your whole event: guest list, catering, music - everything. With the outside lounge area, the modern and high tech dance floor, and the spectacular lighting, you'll have everything you need for a really memorable event. But even if you're not hosting anything, you can still drop by on the weekends for a high energy night full of beautiful people, great music, and some of the greatest drink specials around.
The atmosphere here is a bit like a 1970s village disco, although the decor is more eighties. Jackie O is a notorious disco for youngsters, frequented by school kids and youths from this part of town. Groping, getting smashed and non-stop partying is the order of the day. The dance floor is always full, and the young males sit in rows watching events unfold. The music is a good guide to the tastes of today's youth - hip hop, soul and chart music for the most part. Turkish pop is played on Saturdays.
Located in a lovely vaulted cellar near the English Garden, this is one of Munich's oldest (1965) Spanish restaurants. Don Quijote concentrates on traditional Spanish cooking without attempting to create anything fashionable. Hearty meals like chilli Jalapeño, chilli peppers filled with chicken EUR 8 or shrimps in an almond and cognac sauce should fill you up. The fish dishes are also highly recommended. The service is exceptionally friendly.
This happening, mainstream disco is located on the top floor of the Hertie department store in Schwabing. The huge windows offer a great view of the city, but if the view alone isn't enough, you can step onto the dance floor, head to the bar, or dig into some food in the restaurant. The clientèle comprises mostly young, good looking professionals on the look out for fun. Prices are a bit above average.
Though the News Café is a great place for an afternoon snack or coffee, it is a completely different place once the sun goes down, and the dim lighting and pleasant music set the mood. A great, spacious bar in the busy Leopold street, it is frequented by a very hip crowd. It serves up a great burger and an equally fun curry. It's the perfect place to be sipping a dark mysterious wine, or even a fire and ice whiskey. The mood and décor are that of a jazz bar though it isn't one. The bartender whips up some fancy cocktails. The sound of talk and laughter ring above the music rather than the other way around.
On Saturdays the Babalu offers a funny and different party with his great Latino Night. From Salsa, Merengue, Son to Latin-Pop everything is prepared for a very wet latino night.
One of the oldest rock clubs in town, Crash recently moved from Lindwurmstraße to the premises of the former Gaslight. It's quite a bit bigger now, but otherwise very much the same - a gritty rock club with an ageing clientele plus a few younger types and a handful of students. The music is still good old rock, with the same tried and tested DJs and plenty of beer. Friday night features golden oldies while DJ Mike takes over the decks every Saturday.
Schwabing is dripping with hip and yuppie bars with expensive drinks, which makes the tiny underground Alte Galerie a nice refuge for night owls. Unlike the big warehouse clubs, it's right around the corner from the Leopoldstraße action and offers killer drink specials to boot! These specials assure that the tiny dance floor will be hopping when the DJ spins the best of hip-hop and house. Alte Galerie is cozy, friendly, and refreshingly relaxed. Themed nights, DJ specials and happy hours take the overall popularity quotient much much higher.
Zum Jennerwein attracts a variety of punters with a high proportion of middle-aged rockers and other alternative types. Most weekends the beer flows to the sounds of rare international hardcore, punk and crossover and house and techno. Food is not exactly Jennerwein's strong point, but the draught beer is always fresh. All in all, this is a good pub attracting a rough-looking but amicable clientèle. Check the website for a list of daily performers and shows.
Saint Witch offers tasty snacks starting at just (EUR 2.25). There is a large selection of sandwiches (you can choose your fillings), hot panini, baked potatoes with various fillings and scrumptious salads. The sandwiches are freshly made and there is a choice of breads. The daily soups and quiches are particularly good. Drinks are very reasonable: a half-litre bottle of mineral water and you can get coffee to go.
A dance club of the more earthy Titanic City kind a mixed and somewhat older clientele in their thirties dance to good old rock on Fridays and Saturdays or reggae on Thursdays. The programme is slightly different on Sundays, with electronic music being the main feature. Unusually for a club, Bavarian specialities such as Weißbier (wheat beer) and Goass'n-Maß (a litre of beer with schnapps) are offered. A favourite among locals this place plays some of the best music in all of the city. The line up of acts are also pretty good.
