Favorit Bar is one of Munich’s worst kept secrets. Disguised by a shop front facade, it looks completely unremarkable from the street. Once you get inside however, it’s even more unremarkable. Seemingly in a permanent state of renovation, the walls are completely bare save for a generous amount of holes. There are no real chairs or tables (rather perches that are coated in PVC) and the bar offers bottled beer and not much else. The whole place is cast in a dim, red light, probably to make it seem warmer but also to mask all the stains—bottled beer is actually the wisest choice, this place gets crowded. The music is usually electronic, though the DJs change daily and all seem to have found that nice balance between atmospheric and lively, as opposed to whisper quiet or ear bashing. Minimalist seems too big a word to describe a style that is actually a complete lack thereof but the bar manages to pass it off with aplomb. Either way, it obviously does nothing to deter customers, who just keep coming back for more. Not just favorite by name!
