Set in an A-listed building on Bothwell Street, previously Madness Theatre of Fun, the Brau Haus looks set to be the city's biggest German-inspired operation when it opens in October 2015, serving up plenty of Teutonic beers and Bavarian-inspired food.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Only selected breweries serve beer at the official halls at Munich’s Oktoberfest. These are the ‘big six’. The USP of the Bavarian Brauhaus is that it has them all (some weissbier, some ‘hells’ lager) on tap, all for around a fiver a pint. This, alongside a choice location in the financial district (remember Madness: Theatre of Fun?), sets the Brauhaus up well for after-work hordes and big groups at the weekend. Like all beer halls, it needs to be busy to bring its high, bright space to life, though there’s a merry soundtrack of oompah horns. Food is unashamedly predictable: roast chicken, veal in breadcrumbs, sausage platters (perhaps the most interesting choice, with smoked pâté and chicken varieties alongside more familiar fare). Generally a little under-seasoned, a tad overpriced – but being able to walk up to the bar and choose any of those great beers is the biggest pull here.
