News from the Munich gastronomic scene – Munich

One day an employee agreed that he was quite a hardened monkey Bill Fehn. He liked it so much that he decided to name his first bar like this: Jaded Monkey. The native New Yorker came to Munich from New York in 1999 – actually to get his master’s certificate as a pastry chef, which is what happened. However, he didn’t end up in the patisserie, but rather in the bar scene. He had already worked as a bartender in New York. But in Munich it became a job, mainly in the B-Bar of the Hotel Elisabeth on Jahnstrasse. In 2014, after a long search, he finally set up his own business and opened the Jaded Monkey Bar – and the monkey motif runs through the entire room on Herzog-Wilhelm-Straße, not far from Sendlinger Rot.

Fehn is very happy with the location: “Far enough away from the celebratory crowds and yet very easily accessible.” Together with his partners Richie Link and Michaela Morawietz, he offers “nice drinking in a cozy atmosphere”. Every year the three create new cocktails, such as the “Hackenviertel”, named after the part of the old town in which the bar is located. And next Thursday the three of them will be celebrating the bar’s tenth anniversary: ​​with cocktails from ten years – from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. from 2014 to 2019 and then from 2019 to 2024. “Flo’s Duke Gin Bar” will also be open until 11 p.m., after that puts DJ Gringo from the Freaky Fukin’ Weirdoz on. Before that, there will be live music from the Austrian double bass and drum duo from 8 p.m Deadbeatz, which mixes blues and punk with hillbilly and rockabilly. The snacks with the drinks are free and not only, but also sweet.
