The Flushing Meadows Hotel & Bar

From the outside, you would never imagine what creative potential lies within this inconspicuous commercial building in the trendy Munich Glockenbach area. Through a metal door like at a nightclub and then via a lift you reach “The Flushing Meadows”, a hotel with a difference. The 11 studios and lofts on the third floor – each with exposed concrete ceilings and a ceiling height of 4 meters – have been designed by personalities from different areas (music, design, gastronomy, fashion, sports or art). The spectrum of the rooms is diverse ranging from whimsical and morbid, pompous, surf-style to Japanese minimalist. The five bright penthouse studio on the fourth floor have a different ambience: they have carpet floors, fabric-panelled walls and copper detailing. Three of them offer a terrace with views to the Alps. But this beautiful view can also be enjoyed from the bar: the communicative heart of the hotel, with a casual living room atmosphere, scores big points with its roof terrace and panoramic views.

The temporary pop-up project Flushing Meadows Camp at Lake Barmsee is run by the same owners. In order to counteract the Corona bustle, the traditional guesthouse “Maximilianshof” in Wallgau was pop-up renovated in June 2020. More information: The Flushing Meadows Camp at Barmsee.

sehr interessante konversion von teilen eines alten postgebäude in ein kleines hotel. alle zimmer sind unterschiedlich, aber jeweils vom design gut und durchdacht umgesetzt.
die lage des hotels in münchen ist super zentral. sowohl für business reisen als auch für das kulturwochenede in münchen sehr zu empfehlen.
die bar im dachaufbau bietet einen toller ausblick, man kann auch auf der dachterasse neben der bar aussen sitzen. die cocktails sind excellent ! die bar ist sehr beliebt und am wochenende kann es voll werden.
