Party Earth Löwenbräukeller Review

The Scene

Since the Löwenbräu beer hall is located right next door to the brewery, patrons can rest assured they're getting the freshest brew possible at Löwenbräukeller.

Since the Löwenbräu beer hall is located right next door to the brewery, patrons can rest assured they’re getting the freshest brew possible at Löwenbräukeller.

Like many traditional Bavarian establishments, the venue looks like a castle and gives the impression of splendor with its ornate moldings, spires, and regal stone lions – and indeed, the Löwe (lion) is a running motif throughout the beer hall.

Once inside, however, customers will find blue and white checkered decorations that recall the colors of the Bavarian flag, as well as multiple floors furnished with some decidedly down-to-earth wooden tables full of merry drinkers of all ages.

Bavarians both young and old dress in traditional clothing for a night at the hall, which only adds to the authentic atmosphere – and authentic it is, as this particular beer hall attracts a more local crowd, making it a hidden gem in the Munich drinking scene.

Whether rubbing elbows with the hoi polloi in the main hall or having an intimate gathering on the secluded tree-covered beer garden, patrons are guaranteed to experience the genuine Bavarian drinking culture at Löwenbräukeller.

Strong Beerfest!!!!
Andrea A. May 25, 2013
This is a must!!!! Starkbeirfeit is a must do!!! Its not as big as Oktoberfest or Spring beerfest but its amazing!!! My group and I went a day early to reserve a table. The next day we attended the event and pretty much EVERYONE was dressed in a drindl or leiderhosen. The reserved table is where you will dinner that night and its a must while visiting Germany to get the stein of beer! Its a huge mug with a liter of beer that should last you the night if you are a "light weight" the Germans don't mess around. During the night, dinner is served, people are drinking, people are happy, and everyone will be dancing until the wee hours once dinner is over. So put on your drindl or leiderhosen, grab a stein, and get ready for some good times!
Great experience and a must, at least once.

Stellar traditional beer hall with lots of hearty Bavarian grub and all the Löwenbräu and Franziskaner goodness you could need to wash zee bratwurst down. I wasn’t blown away by this place but had a good time. The beer garden is actually pretty small by German standards and the menu leaves little to the imagination but wasn’t bad. Hey, give me some pancake soup and I am good. The front of the garden is for waiter service only, so to save some coin go to the back where it is all self-service. The dining hall inside is quite big and there are a ton of private rooms for rent. Would be fun to do an event here, as many people do. Still has a very old-school feel, though not as old as the original. I am told that place was largely destroyed during the war, but you can still feel the 18th century vibe thanks to a meticulous renovation and I dig that sort of thing.
