Charles Schumann started out at Munich’s Harry’s New York Bar (now known as Pusser's) in 1973, opening Schumann’s American Bar on the Maximilianstrasse in 1982. The bar has since moved to a prime Odeonsplatz address, where the one-time model promises “good service, best quality, no frills”. The main bar transitions from restaurant (serving the likes of Bavarian potatoes) to drinking den at midnight, complementing the smaller Camparino, next door, and the first-floor Fleurs du Mal. All three venues boast elegant decor and expertly mixed cocktails. Schumann himself still works the floor throughout the week.
