Munich is not riddled with wine bars - but here are a few selected by our ambassador Justin Leone.

    Address: Theresienstraße 1, München

    The bar-version little-brother of Michelin-Starred Restaurant Mural is an absolute gem nestled just north of Odeonsplatz. For a seat at the bar, a casual high-top or out back on the terrace, comfort is the keynote and the food follows suit. The cuisine is unpretentious yet high-level, with a surprisingly extensive wine list where natural wine lovers and conventional drinkers alike can feel at home. Service is relaxed and on point, ambience is lively and welcoming. Always worth a stop in.

  2. Address: Hans-Sachs-Straße 3, München

    Munich’s newest nightlife addition is set in the trendy-yet-bohemian heart of Glockenbachviertel. A dimly lit, modern bar sets the oh-so-sexy tone for popping corks while the rumble of upbeat house and electronic music swirl about the diverse crowd. A light and delectable Mediterranean fair is paired with a concise yet eclectic, quirky list covering just about every mood, from Anjou to Orange and everything in between. The perfect destination for a meet-up or pre-cursor to a clubby night out.

    This is pretty much the only wine bar on a more world-class level in town, with a great wine list and fair prices. The bar is always packed and bustling, a great ambience. If you go there on Mondays, you’ll find a lot of people from the industry sharing bottles and stories. The kitchen staff – two chefs (a couple) with extensive Michelin-Star experience are revolutionizing the cuisine. Delicate, elevated and inventive small plates, playful snacks for sharing, and deliciously intellectual main courses are the new M.O. of Grapes, paired perfectly with your choice of German and Austrian favourit...
