Danke, Melbourne!

The world’s oldest Hofbrauhaus outside Europe is returning to its original location at 18-28 Market Lane in the heart of Chinatown. The last 12 months have been an absolute challenge for the industry and therefore we are thrilled to announce that after almost 9 months Hofbrauhaus will finally open its doors in Chinatown again. The initial restrictions and mossing outdoor opportunities in Market Lane had forced us to keep Hofbrauhaus closed during the second reopening in November. In order to operate efficiently and offer a safe environment after the month long lockdown we had decided to operate Hofbrauhaus out of its sister location in Docklands The Hof Downtown. With a big outdoor Biergarten just opposite Marvel Stadium, Hofbrauhaus had a great staycation but now its time to return to the OG!


From 27th March 2021 Hofbrauhaus will return to its original location in the heart of Chinatown offering the most authentic Bavarian experience you can get on the other site of the world! We know how hard the CBD got hit by the lockdowns and there is still a long way to go. But we want to be part to bring Melbourne’s CBD back to live.

“If you can’t go to Germany, we’ll bring it to you”

With international travel being banned for the time being we want to bring a little piece of Bavaria to Melbourne. Offering authentic food, Bier from independent breweries and of course a Bavarian good time will make our friends feel like they just been to Bavaria just without the travel time! Hofbrauhaus has been part of the Melbourne culinary landscape since over 50 year’s and we don’t plan on stopping this! We are passionate about authentic flavours and a great experience.
