This large Bavarian bar/restaurant has been painstakingly designed and built as a perfect replica of the world famous original Hofbräuhaus beer hall in Munich, Germany. In fact, the Vegas Hofbräuhaus is the only such reproduction in the world and is accurate down to the actual building materials and most minute details. Established in 2004, it brings an authentic taste of Bavaria to the desert, with imported German beers, and a large selection of real German foods (including pretzels), made in and imported from Germany.
There is a large beer hall designed to look like an outdoor space as well as a dedicated restaurant area, although food is also served at the bar. In true Vegas form, the beer is served in one-liter mugs by busty waitresses wearing traditional Bavarian garb.
Bavarian-themed bands and performers often play at the Vegas Hofbräuhaus, with sing-alongs and competitions adding to the fun. Winners of competitions, such as the pretzel eating contest, get souvenirs from the popular gift shop.
Located off-Strip, the Vegas Hofbräuhaus provides a welcome change for those tired of the glitz and glare of the main stretch. It offers a down to earth drinking and eating experience where good food, copious amounts of beer and old-fashioned revelry are the order of the day.
A favorite amongst locals and regular visitors, this hidden gem is a great place to meet people, as the atmosphere is generally friendly and high-spirited. While it can often get quite rowdy and loud, there are also a few quiet places where you can retreat to if you want to have a private conversation.
Although beer is the main attraction at the Vegas Hofbräuhaus, a variety of wines and liquors are also available for those who prefer beverages other than beer.
The Vegas Hofbräuhaus is located on the corner of Paradise and Harmon, near the Hard Rock Hotel. The address is 4510 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nevada 89169.
The Hofbräuhaus is open seven days a week for both food and drink. Sunday – Thursday 11am – 11pm Friday and Saturday 11am – Midnight Reservations are not always necessary. There is no dress code.
