Do you know that feeling, when you like something so much that you can hardly find words for it? That’s the thing going on between me and Alter Ofen. If I try to describe it to someone in order to demonstrate how great this place is, I’m left with a flat cluster of words, doing the atmosphere and aura of this bar no justice. What makes the Alter Ofen one of my all-time favourites in Munich are the stories connected with it …
This is the place I went for, after getting caught by a heavy summer storm at night, soaking wet, dripping on the wooden table. This is the first bar I drank tea in, after already having a beer, simply because my friend got one served with a huge cookie and suddenly all of us wanted some. This has been the place where some people got lost in the kitchen without purpose. And only here will a magical procedure happen every night around 22:30, coming out of that very kitchen.
To me, the secret formula for success of the Alter Ofen is its potential to experience such stories. People who come here are super relaxed, the crew is above the ordinary friendly, food and drinks are excellent and convenient at the same time and the bar itself is the coziest hang out in the neighbourhood.
To make a long story short, visit the Alter Ofen to get your own!
