AMER­I­CAN DREAMS

Western Living - - TRAVEL / THE CHECK- IN -

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.
