For any Oktoberfest fan, no trip to Vegas is complete without visiting the Hofbräuhaus! Despite being off the Las Vegas strip is it still easily accessible by foot. Although with temperatures in nearing 100 I decided on a quick cab from Planet Hollywood. The Hofbräuhaus looks as if it were plucked right out of Munich and placed in Nevada. The building is almost a replica of the one in Munich and offers a large beer hall with live entertainment or a quiet, indoor beer garden. I opted for the beer hall where I was greeted with the beautiful music of MC Johann. Don’t be surprised if you are sitting at the same table as another group, it just adds to the excitement. Our server Mona was a lot of fun and was dressed in a traditional dirndl. I started off the night with a giant pretzel served with Obazda cheese, sweet mustard and onion mustard. The pretzel was a little smaller than the ones I had in the tents in Munich but was just as tasty. To wash the pretzel down I had a Maβ of Hofbräu Original. For dinner I had the Hofbräuhaus Wurstplatte which offers Vienna Style Frankfurters, Pork and Chicken Sausages, imported sauerkraut, mashed potatoes and onion mustard. The sausages come on a plate prepared just as I received them in Munich and just as delicious as I remembered. While you are waiting on food or while you are eating you will be serenaded by traditional oompah music until Johann or the night’s entertainment is ready to get you going. Johann is an absolute blast. He is a one man band and he performs all of the traditional songs as well as the wiesn hits you are familiar with from the tents. Needless to say, when he is performing be sure to have a full Maβ because he will take every opportunity to get you up off your seat, singing, dancing and drinking along. Unfortunately, I was unable to stay to see the later acts of the night but I will assume they are going to try and get you to do the same. One amazing thing about the beer hall is when Johann is not performing he is walking from table to table to sit and chat and get to know you. The camaraderie in the beer hall brings me right back to the original Hofbräuhaus in Munich and the fun in the tents at Oktoberfest. My only drawback would be the prices. The giant pretzel with fixings will run $14, wurstplatte is $19 and a Maβ of beer is $15. In my opinion, the entertainment value and fun out weights the slightly inflated prices. The Hofbräuhaus in Las Vegas is definitely a stop that should be made by anyone who wants good German food and entertainment and is one place I will always visit when I am back in Sin City.
