Cocktail Bar
$$
“When you believed James Bond to be extravagant, ordering his martinis shaken, not stirred, you’d definitely never been to Zephyr Bar. Certainly, there are lots of places in Munich where excellent cocktails are served. But drinking perfectly mixed Margaritas, Cosmopolitans and Daiquiris can become a bit dull after a while – and there’s not much to mix and shake in these recipes anyway. Thankfully, the high art of cocktail making is on the comeback – revived by the trend of retro prohibition bars popping up all around the United States. The Zephyr Bar can be seen in that tradition, but instead of masquerading itself in vintage, roaring 20s style, the focus is totally on the drinks. Whereas the room is kept quite simple – grey walls, unexciting plain seating – the bar itself is the center of decadence and indulgence. Bottles of super rare and exotic origins, antique soda siphons and silver cocktail stirrers, passion fruits, strawberries, meringues, lavender, herbs and flowers are overflowing the shelves and racks. Sometimes I even wonder if I entered a botanical garden, an ancient chemistry lab or a cabinet of wonder by mistake. Taking a nip from my Pink Paloma, I witness all the cocktail magic going on, talk shop with the bartenders (super friendly guys who know their business) and am astonished by the outré ingredients conjured to the drinks. Zephyr Bar is not the kind of place to go for the conventional, but where wild roses grow by surprise.”
