Bierhaus NYC – The Visual Experience

New York City is jam packed with restaurants and bars that attempt to convey a certain theme or feeling. At Bierhaus NYC, we are passionate about creating an authentic Bavarian experience that will take our guests on a journey to another land. From our “hops chandelier” to our long communal tables, we hope to immerse our guests in a truly unique atmosphere that highlights some of our favorite aspects of a traditional bier garden.

If you’re wondering what to expect upon climbing the staircase to Bierhaus NYC, we have compiled a type of “visual experience” for you to enjoy. With that said however, these photos can only do so much. For the crisp taste of a cold Hofbräu Original, the feet-tapping sound of a live polka band, and the smell of a deliciously warm soft pretzel, you’ll have to come experience it for yourself.

When you reach the top of the stairs at Bierhaus NYC, you will first be greeted by one of our lovely hostesses. They will help escort you to an open table, or point you in the direction of the bar.

If you decide to forgo a table and head to the bar instead, you might just be greeted by one of our bartenders, Marlene. If you are interested in trying one of our world famous Hofbräu biers, Marlene will help you to decide which one. Or if you’d like, feel free to sample a few before you decide!

Once you have decided on the bier you would like, be sure to take a moment to look at your surroundings. Along the wall you will see our Stein Club locker that holds the personal steins of our Stein Club members. If you think to yourself that you would love to have your own stein waiting for you every time you come to Bierhaus (plus other benefits), be sure to check out the details of our Stein Club membership here.

You will also catch a glimpse of our “hops chandelier” that hangs over the tables from the skylight above. The wrought-iron chandelier has been wrapped with the same hops that were used when making the bier that you now hold in your hand.

After finishing your first bier, you might be feeling a bit bolder. If that’s the case, we suggest you go bigger. How about ordering ‘Das Boot?’ We do advise, however, to only go this route if you are accompanied by a few of your friends! Give a shout out to Jeff, another one of our bartenders, as he artfully pours your bier.

By now you have probably worked up quite an appetite. But what shall you order? We highly recommend starting off with our Bierhaus Pretzel–a soft dough pretzel imported from Bavaria and served with your choice of sweet or spicy mustard. Next, we suggest our famous slow roasted Pork Shank served with crackling, sauerkraut, and potato au gratin. As for dessert, how does our warm Apple Strudel sound? (We prefer it ‘mit schlag’ or ‘with ice cream.’)

After you’ve had your fill of Bavarian cuisine, it’s time to get on your feet and dance to the live polka music that has been serenading you throughout your meal. Now is not the time to be shy! Clap your hands, spin about…even stand up on a bench to dance if you feel so inclined!

Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly have any more fun, a cow bell rings in the distance. But what could THAT mean? You are in for quite a surprise, for that bell means a Shot-Ski is making its way to you and your friends! Bottoms up!

We hope you enjoyed your “visual experience” at Bierhaus NYC! Please stop by and see us soon. In the meantime, PROST!

Oktoberfest continues at Bierhaus NYC with National Bratwurst Eating Championship!

October isn’t over yet, which means that Bierhaus NYC is still celebrating Oktoberfest! Until the end of the month, we will have live music Tuesday through Saturday nights. Stop by and enjoy our famous Hofbräu Oktoberfest bier while tapping your foot to live Polka music (or dancing on a table if that’s more your style).

On Saturday, October 26th, we will be hosting the Second Annual Bierhaus NYC National Oktoberfest Bratwurst Eating Championship. (That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? Literally!) At approximately 3:00pm, professional and amateur eaters alike will battle it out to see who can eat the most bratwurst in 8 minutes. The winner of last year’s competition–Jamie “The Bear” McDonald–ate 33 bratwurst and became the #1 Ranked Independent Competitive Eater in the World. He will be back again this year in an attempt to keep his winning title. Standing next to him will be the current #1 Ranked Female Independent Competitive Eater and #2 Overall Ranked Independent Competitive Eater, Molly Schuyler from Nebraska, who is the only person to have beaten McDonald in an officially sanctioned Independent Competitive Eating Championship. All Pro Eating will officially sanction this National Eating Championship which includes a $1,600.00 prize pool.

If you have yet to celebrate Oktoberfest this year, (or if you want to celebrate again) why not head to New York City’s Oktoberfest Headquarters? Every day, we strive to provide our guests with an extremely unique and memorable way to celebrate Bavarian food, beer, and culture. We hope to see you there! Prost!

To make a reservation, please e-mail info@bierhausnyc.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.

If you’re not able to make it to Munich for Oktoberfest this year, there’s no need to worry! We’ve got you covered at Bierhaus NYC. Don your lederhosen or your dirndl and head to Bierhaus NYC to experience Oktoberfest festivities that will continue from September 21st until October 31st.

The Oktoberfest celebrations will kick off on Saturday, September 21st, with the 56th German-American Steuben Parade. The parade will begin at 68th Street and Fifth Avenue at 12 noon and will end at 86th Street and Fifth Avenue. Immediately following the German-American Steuben Parade, the Fifth Annual U.S. Masskrugstemmen Championship will be held in Central Park. Semi-Finalists from around the U.S. including Jim Banko, the Bierhaus NYC finalist, will test their stein-holding strength one last time in an attempt to be named the U.S. Champion in Masskrugstemmen and receive a trip for two to Munich to visit the original Hofbräuhaus. The celebrations will continue later that day at Bierhaus NYC with a ceremonial keg tapping and live music by Alpine Squeeze, a German-American festival band known for entertaining crowds with its polka and waltzes.

Throughout Oktoberfest, live bands will play nightly Tuesday through Saturday at Bierhaus NYC. While enjoying the live polka music, we encourage you to sample our traditional soft pretzels imported from Bavaria, our slow roasted pork shank served with sauerkraut, and our vast selection of wurst.
