Munich's Hotspots and Gay Districts

The city's gay and lesbian community welcomes visitors in the many bars, clubs and dance locations throughout the historic city center. The main gay area is in the Glockenbach quarter around Gärtnerplatz Square. Morizz is a beautiful, well-designed bar and restaurant which received a design award a few years ago.

Deutsche Eiche (German Oak) is a great place to spend all day and night. Breakfast is served from 7am, lunch from 11.30am, and dinner is available even after midnight in typical Bavarian or international style. The restaurant once was the home of world-famous filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder and the leader of "Queen" Freddie Mercury. The Deutsche Eiche is also the first gay-owned 3-star Superior Hotel and home to the Deutsche Eiche Bathhouse, Germany's most frequented and largest gay sauna, which is open 24h on weekends, and from 2pm to 7am during the week.
The Selig attracts mostly gay men to its indoor and outdoor sidewalk areas. From here, people head to the nearby NY.Club to dance away the second half of the night. The Match Club is a new and popular club famous for its great electronic music and gay parties on Friday nights. Bau is a place where fetish and foam parties are not uncommon. 
The Ochsengarten has been a local institution for over 50 years and belongs to the leather and Levi-leather fraternity. Other popular men's bars include Edelheiss, Spike and Teddy Bar. The Kraftakt is a crowded internet-café and restaurant. Another restaurant and bar is the Moro with an eclectic menu ranging from local favorites such as Schweinebraten (roast pork), to pasta and other international fare.

The Prosecco, a cozy neighborhood bar, is home to local drag divas and lots of Schlager music (German oldies) and is always jam packed on weekends.
At the Oberangertheater, you can visit the best drag shows in Munich, or join special parties for lesbians and young gays. In front of the theater, the new restaurant Foyer offers great meals at very reasonable prices.
