Our first Artworth at Bucherer event outside of Switzerland leads us to Munich. Here, we stay at the iconic Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski Munich and enjoy its outstanding amenities and central location. Join us on a classy trip to Bavaria's capital!
Stepping inside the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten Kempinski Munich, the first thing we experience is the iconic Seasons Lobby. Harmonious colors, comfy armchairs and an impressive copula incorporating the symbols of the four seasons. Dubbed "Munich's most beautiful living room", the lobby is the place where Munich's locals and guests from all over the world meet and enjoy the specialties from the hotel's very own patisserie.
Chef Patissier Ian Baker and his team create true masterpieces. Classic treats such as éclairs, petit gateaux and tartes are reinterpreted with a modern twist. Ian Baker also knows how to impress afternoon tea enthusiasts. We indulge in one of the finest English traditions with champagne, home-made scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam as well as a selection of savory sandwiches being served.
Adjacent, the Seasons bar combines cosy nooks with royal flair, which reflects the hotel's rich history. We love the ambiance of this typical American bar. Bar manager Aleksandar's cocktail creations focus on mixology drinks. Here, we enjoy classics such as the Negroni as well as some signature cocktails we recommend you to discover.
On the culinary side, the Royal Club Sandwich with truffles, lobster, and caviar awaits you along with other bar classics such as the Vier Jahreszeiten Burger or Tatar of Bavarian Ox. According to Aleksandar, you will find the best live music on Thursdays!
Since we can't resist a fine cigar, we head over to the Seasons Cigar Lounge. It has the exclusive ambience of a British gentlemen's club and is managed by Zechbauer Munich. Here we find the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a cigar.
Genuine Tobacco Leaf wall paneling and tables are featured in the Cigar Lounge. This interior takes us on a journey back into royal times. The only difference is the smoke extraction technology installed in the room. One of the most efficient systems available, visitors are able to enjoy a lounge without the smell of cigars, even leaving clothes odorless.
After a good night sleep, we enjoy a rich breakfast in our suite. Various delicious dishes can be ordered and enjoyed in the room or on the balcony. Alternatively, it is also possible to enjoy the breakfast buffet in the Schwarzreiter Restaurant & Tagesbar.
Located inside the hotel, the Black rider day bar represents the more casual part of the Schwarzreiter dining experience. While the Black Rider Restaurant offers a Michelin star culinary indulgence. Both the Day bar and Black Rider Restaurant offer dining options, and all food is prepared by the same kitchen team headed up by Chef Hannes Reckziegel.
Get ready to experience "Young Bavarian Cuisine", as each dish will always have a traditional Bavarian ingredient or method of preparation included within it. We love this regional and seasonal touch. Another nice aspect of the Day bar are the beautiful views onto the famous Maximilianstraße. Here you will see lots of super cars passing by.
The third edition of our "Artworth at Bucherer" event series is the first one to take place outside of Switzerland. Bucherer has recently opened an exclusive Certified Pre-Owned Lounge at the prestigious Residenzstraße 11. Overlooking the Max-Joseph-Platz, our guests have the opportunity to discover exciting certified pre-owned timepieces curated by Bucherer.
While talking watches, we also enjoy some delicious food and pair it with champagne from Laurent-Perrier and finest scotch whiskies. Definitely a night to remember!
