Schwabing is also known as the students quarter of Munich (for you Americans, it's a place, not 25c). It's the area where you'll find some of the best restaurants and bars in Munich, including Gunther Murphys and 3 other Irish pubs. The cultural centre of Schwabing is Leopold Strase, which runs North out of Odeon Platz. To get to where the clubs are, take the U-bahn to the University stop, and look out for the big white man on the side of the road.

I still find it a little odd the way Munich is divided into quarters. I find the well-known photocopying quarter especially peculiar.
