Munich has a rich and very varied nightlife that is mainly concentrated around the Münchner Freiheit in Schwabing. Bars, Cafes, restaurants, dance halls and jazz clubs line up and attract hundreds of people, especially students and young people, every night. The quarter of Haidhausen is known for its alternative scene and the area Glockenbachviertel is a meeting point for gays. Around the Gärtnerplatz many new cafes and bars have been popping up lately but also the city centre itself has a lot to offer when it comes to going out and having fun. However, prices for entrance and drinks can be shockingly high and most of the clubs have bouncer who act according to strict entrance rules. So fancy dressing and proper manners are a chance to a ticket for some of the best and trendiest clubs in Munich like Maximilians and P1. But there are also less chic places where you can have a great night in a fun atmosphere. Many cafes and bars are a good alternative to the posh clubbing scene. A new trend are after-work parties from 6 to 10 pm with music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. All those who have a weakness for gambling have the chance to do so at the Spielbank Garmisch-Partenkirchen which is open every day between 3 pm and 2 am. Entrance is only possible at the age of 21 and with an appearance according to the dress code. There is a bus operating between the casino and the city every 90 minutes. The ticket is 7,50 € for a return.
The best way to know what is going on in the city is keeping your eyes and ears open and of course checking some of the local magazines and newspapers (City magazine Prinz (Internet: www.prinz.de) and City Beats (tourist board)).
Opening times for bars and clubs are very flexible and it is not unusual that they stay open until the early morning hours. Alcohol is only served to people older than 18.
