These guys really know their stuff when it comes to wine. And the good news is, Stefan and Markus (left to right) are way less dogmatic about their wine game than one would think. Maybe because they’re down to earth Austrians. Grapes offers vertical tasting sessions (new every month) for smaller budgets and fancy pantsy vintage wines by the glass for much bigger budgets. Food is great too…!
These Swedish guys just keep on coming. The good news is that Arket offers a more stimulating shopping experience than H&M or COS etc – in our opinion anyway. Maybe that’s because their little cafe on the shops ground level serves very delicious Danish cinnamon rolls and decent coffee…
Weinstrasse 6, city center
THE STOREY AT OBERPOLLINGER
Oberpollinger has recently tried to rejuvenate their mildly antiquated shop in the city center by adding a younger more streetish selection in their basement. This concept is titled “The Storey” (obviously borrowed from Berlin’s Soho House shop) and offers a mix of relevant brands for males and females, footwear and apparel. One of only a few destinations worth visiting on Munich’s pedestrian shopping mile, which is actually the busiest in Germany but also tends to attract all those shops you’ll find everywhere else too.
WHAT A PETIT
In April 2017 our buddies Tith & Maxi opened this beauty of a streetwear shop for kids (ca. 3 – 12 years). They carry brands such as Champion, Fred Perry, Vans, Thrasher, Converse, Stüssy, Herschell, Schott, Superga and the local favorite BRRRP! Located in Maxvorstadt, right next to the stellar menswear shop “Harvest”. Fun fact: once a year, these shops transform idyllic Zieblandstraße into a bangin’ street festival. Must go!
You should be aware of the fact that you are in serious danger of being exposed as a tourist, if you are not wearing sunglasses the second the sun comes out. That’s how the locas do. It’s one of those stereotypes about the city … but one that is actually true. Your closest source for shades is the Viu shop on Reichenbachstraße.
We recommend Optimal and Public Possession, both located in close proximity to The Flushing Meadows Hotel. Optimal is a little bigger and has been around for ages. Public Possession, which is run by local DJs Marvin & Valentino, is right next to Robinson’s SHRN skate shop.
