Though the U.S. of A. may not be impressing the world with its politics of late, its bar culture clearly still has clout. 3 Zum Wolf’s name may be a play on the German toast Zum Wohl (to your health), but the unassuming bar is actually an ode to the American South, with a curated selection of bourbons and an Etta James-heavy soundtrack to match. Sip a Kentucky Lightning, made with wood-infused Bulleit, honey and bitters here, unless you need a booze break, in which case, skip over to sister room 4
Wolf’s Farmacy, Munich’s first soda bar, for a wholesome New York-style egg cream (though if you change your mind about imbibing, barrel-aged drinks like the Drambuie-with-whisky Smoked Rusty Nail are at the ready). Prefer your Americana with a Miami
Vice twist? Hit up the High, where flamingo-pink walls, palm trees aplenty and a turquoise marble bar set the stage for a flurry of flamboyant high- end highballs: think a lime- green Basilisc with gin, basil, apricot and olive oil; the Mezcal Mary; or a Farang Mule topped with beetroot foam.
