Think retro après-ski bar—wooden walls and floors, big 1970s disco lights and a mirrored ceiling. A young, casual crowd can be found stretching out on the brown leather day beds, sipping cocktails and just chilling. That’s when they’re not entranced by the bar’s biggest wow factor—its view over Sonnenstrasse and Karlsplatz. The music is an undemanding yet uplifting sound of funk and the 1960s. The atmosphere is infectious and relaxed, which comes as a surprise considering that Cord is such a magnet for Munich’s beautiful people. But it’s not just the customers who are chilled. Laid back bar staff are happy to tab up your drinks all night.
