The Jaded Monkey is a fairly new member of the Munich bar scene but it has already made a name for itself for having probably the best cocktails in the city, together with Zephyr (check the Zephyr bar article).
They offer all kinds of cocktails but I am a huge fan of their gin creations. Some of my favourites are the Monkey Fizz and the Spring Gin. The bar atmosphere is very industrial and slightly elegant, but in no way posh. The staff is very nice and you can also meet Bill Fehn, the owner of the bar, who came to Munich 25 years ago for a pastry course and decided to stay.
Have a look at the lamps – they give off a really special feeling once you are in the bar.
Some other cocktails worth mentioning are Bruce Lee with grapefruit vodka and home-made lemonade and The White Pearl – a mixture of Hennessy, honey and pear juice.
The place is also worth visited in summer, as they will open the large windows and put a few small tables outside.
