Among the nice cafes and bars is the Türkenstrasse, known for the place’s links to the sardonic magazine Simplicissimus and retaining a bohemian feel. Tresznjewski, Theresienstrasse gives an imaginative flamboyance. After midnight, by the time it is full up, it turns into an enticing place where the concoctions are something that you can’t get enough of. In the uber-hip Gartnerplatz district, cocktails inns like Müllerstrasse, Ksar Club, Holy Home, Reichenbachstrasse, Lizard Lounge and Corneliusstrasse are often jam-packed with hip crowd and make it impossible to grab a seat right away. The News Bar near the Ludwig Maximilian University is a well-liked hangout among students.
At Gartnerplatz, bars such as Morizz, Klenzestrasse, Café Gluck and Palmstrasse, initially opened as chic gay hang-out, were discovered and conquered by straight partygoers.
