The Mediterranean-themed restaurant at the fab Hotel in Munich has been extensively renovated to offer an elegant and welcoming atmosphere.
What once was a traditional inn with a wheat beer brewery is now the family-run fab Hotel with an adjoining restaurant. Located just 20 minutes from Marienplatz in the east of the Bavarian state capital Munich, the hotel, which was built for the Olympic Games in 1972 and completely overhauled in 2016, now has over 30 comfortable, modern rooms.
A whole new look
The hotel and restaurant, which also feature a bowling alley and club lounge on the lower ground floor, were divided and given separate entrances back in 2009. The restaurant was actually due to be renovated 10 years later, but this was delayed due to Covid.
Today, the eatery, which is run by a skilled head chef and partner, has been given a whole new look. The ventilation, walk-in refrigerator and freezer, flooring, ceilings and WCs were completely renewed and the walls redesigned.
Harmonious interior colour scheme
In addition to an inviting outdoor area with around 12 places under beautiful chestnut trees, the bright interior offers space for approximately 70 guests. The light wood on the floors and walls is echoed in the tables, chairs, stools and dividing walls.
These natural hues are combined with comfortable green cushions on seats and benches as well as a green tiled bar area. Some of the walls feature dark wallpaper with matching green plant patterns.
The architects at Holzapfel used dark acoustic ceiling panels to create an elegant and welcoming dining area for guests.
