James T. Hunt bar is located in Munich’s up-and-coming university district, Maxvorstadt. The spot is our very own interpretation of a classic American cocktail bar. We serve quality liquor and wood-oven pizza – and keep a fine selection of vinyls just in case our guests feel like playing some records. The place gets pretty packed after 10 pm. Grabbing a sun-downer or aperitif on the bar’s trottoir in the early evening is also a great idea.

Talk football with baristas Lucca and Giovanni over coffee in the morning. Or enjoy lunch out back on Schumann’s lovely Hofgarten terrace. Or catch late night drinks and dinner, if you can get a table. In any case, Schumann’s is a Munich classic – just like the bar’s owner Charles, who has been known to personally serve selected guests with a piece of his mind.
LENBACHS & SÖHNE
Tiny, tight and traditionally tacky. The crowd is on the young side. We prefer L&S late at night – or early in the morning, depending on how you look at it, when many of the city’s night-owls conjure for what we generally like to call: one final Absucker. Or two …
