Favorit-Bar is one of those places you’d probably never enter if you didn’t know about it. The bar is located in a quiet street in the city center, while most party folk are heading to the nearby Glockenbach area, and is rather unremarkable from the outside.
By now, a lot of people do know about it though, and every weekend it’s really crowded. Luckily Favorit-Bar is open every day, so escape the masses and come during the week or be there when the doors open at 22:00 to secure one of the few seating possibilities. There are no chairs and no tables, just orange linoleum-covered “things” that look like they grew out of the floor. They are much more comfortable than they sound (and look) like.
Inspection lamps emit a dim and cozy red light, the walls are bare and brittle and one wall full of ventilators is the only “decoration” in the place. The whole bar looks like it’s in the middle of being renovated. Or soon to be demolished. The electronic music is never too loud or too brash to disturb your conversation nor too boring or slow to dance to.
Normally it’s a taboo to say that in Munich, but here goes: When you’re in Favorit-Bar you’ll feel like you’re in Berlin.
