The first one that deserves to be mentioned is the Münchner Freiheit area, a public square in the northern neighbourhood of Schwabing. Literally meaning “Munich Freedom”, this area is the most popular destination for university students in the city. Two of the area’s biggest and best clubs are located on Leopoldstraße, being Mint Club München and Deluxe Munich. If you’re looking for a classic night out where you can party until the early hours, then these are two ideal venues to head to for you girls to finish off your night! Aside from these nightclubs, the area is most well-known for its stylish and eclectic bars. One of the most popular is Keg Bar, situated just off Leopoldstraße. This Irish sports bar is a favourite for locals, showing live sports from all over the world and serving up fantastic bar food with great beers to go with it. And with being open ‘til late every night of the week, there’s never a bad time to stop by at this bar for a drink or two on your way to the big clubs in the area.
Another fantastic bar worth visiting is Trumpf oder Kritisch. Located on Feilitzschstraße just a stones’ throw away from the Münchner Freiheit metro station, this late-night food and music venue is open every evening during the week where you and the girls could go for a pre-night out meal and a few German beers or cocktails before making your way around the other bars in the area. On the other hand, this is also a great place for a few chilled drinks too!
Situated next door and also on Wedekindplatz is Café Rennbahn, a small beer hall that feels more like a friendly neighbourhood local pub than anything else! This bar stays open until very late, so spending an entire evening at this venue sipping cocktails with the girls is always a good idea. Two other bars also located on the square that are worth mentioning are Distillers Bar and Wallace Bar, which also stay open until the early hours of the morning.
As a city known for its love for beer and partying, you and the girls are guaranteed to find a lively nightlife area of Munich that will be perfect for everyone. With so much choice available, it can be quite hard to figure out where to start! One place that we would recommend checking out before anywhere else is Kultfabrik, a large open space and industrial park that claims to be the biggest nightlife area in Europe! Situated in the Werksviertel-Mitte area (or Factory Quarter), this lively hotspot features over 20 bars and clubs. The area is made up of mostly independent businesses set up in former shipping containers, known as the “Container Collective” pop-up city.
One of the best in the area is the impressive MH5 Roof Bar. This bar sits high above the city of Munich, giving you unbelievable views of the city and the Bavarian Alps in the backdrop. This welcoming drinking spot is a hugely popular destination for locals and visitors, with plenty of open space, modern décor and even better drinks!
Situated next door is the Americanos Bar & Club, which is open until the very early hours of the morning each weekend. This stylish and modern bar has very reasonably priced drinks, a great atmosphere and even better music, making it everything you could possibly want from a late-night bar.
For exciting cocktails, the Gin City bar just a few doors down is the place to go for everything… you guessed it… gin! Not only is this a paradise for any gin-loving party, but this bar also stays open ‘til late, making it the perfect place to stay for a chilled night out drinking delicious cocktails with the girls or as a starting point before hitting the bigger venues. For a taste of Munich’s best beers, head next door to Kölschbar. With a warm and friendly atmosphere, hearty Bavarian food and great beers to wash it down with, visiting this bar is a fantastic idea if you girls need to line your stomachs before the night out.
Maximiliansplatz / Maximillian Square
For the biggest and best nightclubs that Munich has to offer, this is the area that you and the girls need to head to. With extremely lively bars and nightclubs that cater to all kinds of music taste, this is the top place to end up on your last night of freedom. Probably the most well-known club in the area is Pacha Munich. Operated by the group behind the world-renowned Ibiza nightclub, this vibrant venue stays open until the very early hours and features some of the best DJs from across Europe, making this the ultimate party destination for any group looking to celebrate big!
Also on the same block, you girls will find 089 Bar & Lounge. This is another exceptional venue that hosts amazing party nights throughout the week and staying open as late as the nightclubs that surround it like Sweet Club and Call me Drella. These two clubs are ideal for those searching for the super-club experience so you can dance until the sun comes up. For a heavier music experience, Rote Sonne is the place to go. This underground rave club hosts regular techno and house music nights with popular DJ’s from across Germany and the rest of Europe.
