Located in the Haus der Kunst (which translates as 'art museum'), Goldene (which translates as, er, 'golden') is a beautiful room decorated with gold mosaic maps illustrated with historic depictions of alcohol production. Above, a signature modern glass chandelier is equally eye-catching.
Vintage bar accoutrements, polished silver and geeky bar books adorn the bar-top, a clue to its bartenders' ability - Klaus St. Rainer , while a voluminous collection of high-end spirits are reflected in candlelight. Probably a victim of its location, the bar can be completely dead mid-week, but is an attractive destination at other times.
The bar is reached from steps climbed from the rear of the building, which overlooks the Englischer Garten, which is apparently larger than Central Park (though don't mistake it for the P1 Club which kicks off at the basement level.)
