The Evening Reception – An exclusive time travel to the Kongress Bar
Just slightly above the huge area of Oktoberfest a small gem of Munich nightlife hot spots is exclusively waiting for us.
You might have heard of the “Wirtschaftswunder” (lit. economic miracle), a term describing Germany’s blazing fast recovery after WWII. Politicians over here still frequently cite the back-then Secretery of Commerce when calling for a new era of economic growth. It sometimes seems as if those days were the “good, old days” when everything was well and social security and economic success weren’t mutually exclusive.
Kongress Bar brings you back there, even in times of economic recession. Lending its name from the former congress and trade fair center, the bar is designed to match the style of the post-war era. Beginning with the white suits of the barmen, to the wooden and red artificial leather (let´s discuss if it is foam-PVC) interior, the black dial pad telephone on the bar, that place could just as well be the set of an episode of Mad Men. Most drinks are named after either Hollywood legends or famous politicians and the architect of the Germany’s economic miracle – Ludwig Erhard – is watching you from a giant poster on the wall.
The Evening Reception starts at 6.30 p.m. with a welcome drink around the bar.
At 7.30 p.m. the bartenders will serve the buffet. Each voucher includes 8 tokens for drinks and free access to the buffet.
Enjoy this evening in one of the most exceptional places in Munich. Join the time travel back into the late 1950s; still talking about the Future and relax in this sophisticated and stylish setting of post-war West-Germany.
