Munich isn’t known as the Beer Capital of the World for nothing, but its varied nightlife extends beyond renowned breweries like Spaten-Löwenbräu, Augustiner, Hofbräuhaus, and Paulaner.
Bars and clubs in Munich vary widely in taste and style, but during the day it seems that everyone heads to the numerous beer halls or beer gardens, immense establishments that much of Munich’s social life revolves around.
