Time Out says

In case you haven’t heard, German gin is a big deal these days, and Zephyr has a top selection, from local The Duke to Monkey 47 Schwarzwald, which boasts a whopping 47 infused botanicals from Germany’s Black Forest. With a deliberately stripped-back décor, this hit locale near the Isar saves the art for the cocktails themselves—and for the stunning cornucopia of fresh ingredients behind the bar. The menu changes regularly but never fails to delight with such fragrant concoctions as the Zephyr Ice Tea No.6 (Blended scotch, rum, dark berries, peppermint, and cloves). It’s like a beautiful, trippy botanical garden, and nearly always packed. (If things get too busy, take a breather at the Flushing Meadows hotel around the corner; it has one of Munich’s best rooftop bars, with great views over the Maximiliankirche towards the Alps, if somewhat patchy service.)
