Pimpernel

Until dawn...

Trendy club with very long opening hours: anyone looking to party till dawn is in the right place at Pimpernel.

No other club in the Glockenbachviertel (Glockenbach district) has a history quite like Pimpernel: strictly speaking, this landmark on the Munich nightlife scene has been in business since the 1930s. Initially the Pimpernel was a commercial establishment; later a meeting place for prostitutes. In the 1980s it established itself as a gay bar, which was regularly visited by Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who lived in Munich for several years during that period and would throw wild parties in the Glockenbachviertel.

Today, the Pimpernel is a hot, fashionable place to be: Whether straight or gay, young or old, hip or old school, everyone parties and dances here till the small hours.

If you’re after a sterile high-tech atmosphere, you certainly won’t find it here: dark wood furnishings, extravagant lighting and cosy alcoves create an interior where you can let your imagination run riot, and which recalls the club’s vibrant history.
