These guys really know their stuff when it comes to wine. And the good news is, Stefan and Markus (left to right) are way less dogmatic about their wine game than one would think. Maybe because they’re down to earth Austrians. Grapes offers vertical tasting sessions (new every month) for smaller budgets and fancy pantsy vintage wines by the glass for much bigger budgets. Food is great too…!
These Swedish guys just keep on coming. The good news is that Arket offers a more stimulating shopping experience than H&M or COS etc – in our opinion anyway. Maybe that’s because their little cafe on the shops ground level serves very delicious Danish cinnamon rolls and decent coffee…

THE STOREY AT OBERPOLLINGER
Oberpollinger has recently tried to rejuvenate their mildly antiquated shop in the city center by adding a younger more streetish selection in their basement. This concept is titled “The Storey” (obviously borrowed from Berlin’s Soho House shop) and offers a mix of relevant brands for males and females, footwear and apparel. One of only a few destinations worth visiting on Munich’s pedestrian shopping mile, which is actually the busiest in Germany but also tends to attract all those shops you’ll find everywhere else too.
We recommend Optimal and Public Possession, both located in close proximity to The Flushing Meadows Hotel. Optimal is a little bigger and has been around for ages. Public Possession, which is run by local DJs Marvin & Valentino, is right next to Robinson’s SHRN skate shop.
We recommend Falkenberg in Schwabing or Manufactum in the city’s center. Falkenberg is more intimate and probably a little more cutting edge, whereas Manufactum is huge and loaded with product, including even bread – and lots of other stuff you may not really have been looking for.
Sandra Schwittau and Christopher Romberg run this beautiful fashion shop for men and women in the heart of Munich. Their high-brow selection of international brands includes Ayzit Bostan, Grenson, Dries van Noten, Wood Wood, Maison Martin Margiela, Humanoid, etc. We are currently working a Schwittenberg x Flushing Meadows Hotel pyjama (!) collaboration, so make sure to look out for that.
Let us introduce you quickly to these fine jewelers from Munich: Werkstatt München, also located on Fraunhoferstraße (better make an appointment), Saskia Dietz (Glockenbach) and Chaingang in Schwabing …
