Aperitivo at Ruby Lilly Bar

As you may know, an aperitivo in Italy is a little snack with a drink that you eat before having dinner. In Spain, is the same, but before lunch. In any of these ways, the thing is to eat something delicious and enjoy a good drink like an Aperol Spritz or a nice wine. It’s not something new that Italy has a big influence on the city of Munich. Most of their inhabitants spend their holidays at Lago di Garda, there are Italian restaurants and ice cream parlors in every…

Zur Gruam is a small bar located near the Alte Utting that opens until late (in Google Maps said it’s open…

Anyway, his taste and his original imprint is something undeniable….

We have created a list with…
