The new Platzl Karree
“Boden & Bar” in Munich’s city center
And once again we have more news to report to you from the Platzl. On August 8 we opened our Platzl Karree at the historical site right on the façade side of the Pfistermühle restaurant. But what is the name all about? Platzl Karree is a bar positioned exactly where the mill wheels of the Hofpfisterei once turned. “Boden” was a term for a wooden paneled area that was used for a variety of things, for example as a grain warehouse and dance floor at the same time. The idea arose with this contrast at the back of our minds: why not open an atmospheric bar to relax and indulge exactly where they used to work really hard?
Platzl Karree’s design
Our creative minds spent many productive hours developing a coherent concept for the start of the height of summer. A new bar was born in Munich’s city center. As usual for Platzl, we also dared to manage the fine balancing act between tradition and modernity with the Platzl Karree. The colors are dominated by anthracite with burgundy and the dark parquet flooring rounds off the stylish and yet down-to-earth design perfectly. Guests can spread out over the bistro tables and up to 20 seats resulting in a perfect open air ambiance.
The food and drink on offer
Platzl Karree presents a unique bar concept in Munich’s old town and is open every day from 4 p.m. to 11.00 p.m. As a day bar you can enjoy coffee specialties and a selection of cakes from the hotel’s own patisserie before ordering a 3-tiered cake stand with fine specialties from the restaurant’s kitchen to go with your glass of Champagne in the evening. A little detour to the bar is also recommended before or after a visit to the opera. After all Munich’s State Opera and the National Theater are just a short walk away. Our recommendation: a cool glass of Perrier-Jouet.
We are initially opening Platzl Karree all year round from 4 p.m. to 11.00 p.m. and even until midnight during the summer months (June to August). We will of course inform you in good time about any changes to the opening hours due to the weather on Platzl Karree´s Facebook page.
We look forward to your visit!
