Place of the week: J-Bar

Place of the week: J-Bar

It’s always nice to visit the J-Bar. This little Japanese restaurant is famous in the city for having the Kirin Ichiban Frozen Beer, a drink that is as cute as it sounds. A cold beer with foam like a cappuccino. Is this not a dream? Apart from this fantastic drink, the J-Bar offers little dishes of Japanese specialties like Takoyaki (octopus balls), Yakitori (chicken skewers), Edamame, Gyozas, Sashimi and more. Not to mention the delicious Matcha ice-cream served with a cute cookie. If you are crazy about Matcha like us,…

21 is the age of this promising talent. Máni Orrason could be young, but he has some stories to tell.

Nightlife: Zur Gruam

Nightlife: Zur Gruam

Most of the people would say Munich is a posh city, and it’s true. But like every city in the world, it has its hidden treasures, its underground places out of the typical circuits. Ok, it’s not like Berlin, where you find “dirty locations” (in all respects), and parties in every corner and everything is so spontaneous, but you can find everything if you know how to do it. Zur Gruam is a small bar located near the Alte Utting that opens until late (in Google Maps said it’s open…

Coming of Age by Virgil Abloh

Coming of Age by Virgil Abloh

Fashion can be the most frivolous industry, but also one of the most creative. The line between just clothes and art is sometimes thin, especially if we talk about designers like Virgil Abloh, the current Louis Vuitton‘s artistic director. Famous for customizing a deadstock of Champion‘s clothes that cost just $40 € for $550 or more, we are not sure if he is a genius laughing in the face of capitalism using its mechanisms, or just a clever marketing guy. Anyway, his taste and his original imprint is something undeniable….

For example, Gurr, who was the first German band we saw in concert in the city, or other amazing bands like Paar, San Antonio Kid, Fenster or International Music, just to name a few. We have created a list with…
