“Schanitown”: the gastro idea born out of Corona


The so-called “Schanigärten” (outdoor dining area) have become much more than a desperate attempt to secure sales and save gastronomic livelihoods during the Corona pandemic. Now there is a very inspiring book with many ideas for easy imitation. See for yourself …

Around 900 outdoor bars in front of restaurants have changed the street scene in Munich over the past two years. The photo book “Schanitown” by Munich architect Alexander Fthenakis presents 114 of them in detail. A great source of inspiration! By the way, more and more gastro-professionals are starting to winterise their bar front gardens - and that's where Meissl comes into play again!
