“Only bar in town where you feel like you're in a "real" city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I love Munich, but it is the least "city-like" city I've ever lived in. Cafe Kosmos is a little oasis of real old-school city vibe in a desert of over-priced, stuffy or idiot-filled posh bars. Missing Berlin? no problem, go hang out at Kosmos. The beer is cheap (by Munich standards), the music is (usually) good, the feeling is just... right. The only drawback is that it gets so crowded at times that you simply can't squeeze in or have a conversation. But for a weeknight with a couple of pals, this is the only place to be.

“Trendy bar that isn't expensive, right near the main train station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

We were in Munich for 3 nights and visited kosmos 3 times! Always packed out at night, cool music and fairly cheap drinks. All our stag group loved it.

“Great bar, probably the cheapest in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

It's a fantastic bar as long as you know why you're going there!

It is full of young people, the decoration is retro and cool (more like being in an old living room), the beer is very cheap (e.g. 1.3 euro for a 0.3 glass of beer), the service is fast and efficient, there is no reason why one will not like this hidden treasure in the centre of Munich!

So, once the expectations are set, you'll enjoy for sure the time in Kosmos!
