A quiet tent for champaign tourists with a strange menu and an unfriendly attitude towards walk-ins. Mostly older German tourists in twinkling dresses.
In 2014, the establishment of the Marstall buried the 111-year-old Hippodrom after its host lost his license due to tax evasion. As its name suggests, the Marstall is mostly designed after its predecessor. It even cites the extraordinary art nouveau façade from 1985. However, its colors and heart-shaped windows leave a rather kitschy impression. The inside of the tent resembles Nordic, clear and plain design featuring less decoration elements than the other, more baroque tents. The menu is rather expensive and offers a number of very unusual dishes like prawns instead of traditional ones.
In search of a new identity for the not so busy afternoon, the Marstall is again changing the afternoon band in 2019. That year, Die Oberbayern again played before the Münchner Zwietracht, one of the many relicts from Hippodrom-times, hits the stage at 18:30pm. Targeting an older, well-situated crowd, the atmosphere very calm before 9 p.m., when the tent gets transformed into a discotheque. Although almost never overcrowded, the tent is mostly closed during the evenings in order to enable bouncers to reject undesired guests. If you want to get in there, refrain from wearing costumes or funny hats.
The tent is expected to start accepting reservation requests in January. Unfortunately, it's known for one of the most costumer-unfriendly reservation conditions. In addition to the minimum consumption that is not issues as beer and chicken vouchers but one single voucher for the whole table (which is actually illegal), you're required to pay an additional fee per person and a ridiculously expensive shipping fee.
