Beyond the lobby of Hotel Bayerischer Hof and vibrant purple-pink domed orangery you'll find the elevated and decoratively plastered Falk's Bar. The island bar sits in a grandiose rectangular room beneath a splendid recoco white plaster ceiling. Huge ornate guilt framed mirrors punctuate the ornate walls and add spaciousness.
Very sophisticated but welcoming, jeans are not frowned upon but your fellow guests are more likely to be wearing cocktail frocks and dinner jackets. This place exudes refined decorum so a Bulvarian beer is hardly fitting. Instead ask one of the white jacketed bartenders for a classic cocktail from the extensive menu. The capable, attractive female bartenders add to the bars refinement.
Alternatively, atop the hotel, Blue Spar Bar offers a more casual setting and panoramic views over the rooftops of Munich. Take the elevator to the 7th floor and head for the spa (being careful to avoid the gym). Beyond the short bar counter set in the corridor entrance lies and the relaxed glass roofed lounge a terrace that runs around the top of the building. Cocktails are not a patch on downstairs - beware the blender but enjoy the view.
