The Urban Purveyor Group, owners and operators of Sydney's Löwenbräu Keller for more than 40 years and nine Bavarian Bier Café venues across NSW and Queensland, opens its newest venture, Munich Brauhaus at Melbourne's South Bank, on August 20.
The spacious waterfront venue will seat more than 900 people and features 250 waterfront seats, three bars and private function rooms, high truss ceilings, mezzanine levels, inbuilt stage and audio visual capabilities.
Paying homage to all things pork, as expected the menu will focus on classic Oktoberfest specials such as suckling pig, sourced locally from Riverlea and cooked over a charcoal spit, an extensive wine list and hand-crafted cocktails.
The Munich Brauhaus features a signature beer, Munich Lager, plus exclusively imported Bavarian beers such as Fürstenburg Premium Pils, Löwenbräu Original, Stiegl Goldbräu, Franziskaner Hefeweizen Hell, and seasonal brews such as Oktoberfestbier.
The Munich Brauhaus, located at 45 South Wharf Promenade, is designed to impart the atmosphere and energy of a traditional Bavarian bierhaus – where guests eat, drink and party like Oktoberfest never ends – to the South bank foreshore.
The Munich Brauhaus opens August 20.
