Travel the globe and you’ll discover that Bavarian culture is celebrated in cities as far-flung as London, Milan and New York, with stylish establishments serving up Pure Bier and fine Bavarian food.
Not wanting Australia to miss out, the first Bavarian Bier Café was launched in July 2005, with York Street opening in the heart of Sydney’s CBD to provide the perfect meeting spot for long business lunches, post-work drinks or a relaxing dinner at the end of a busy day.
The popularity of York Street saw a more rustic Bavarian Bier Café open at Manly Wharf in the following months. With its spectacular location and sunny bier garden, this venue quickly became a hotspot for special events and chilled weekends spent enjoying a stein or two with friends while soaking up the sunshine.
To keep up with the demand for quality bier and satisfying schnitzels in the Sydney CBD, O'Connell Street was opened in mid 2006. Next up was Entertainment Quarter, which commenced trading in December 2007 and was instantly embraced by the wide mix of Sydneysiders who make their way to this buzzy precinct each day.
With the city’s Bavarian needs covered, it was soon time to take the best to the west. Parramatta opened in June 2008 and offered capacity for over 700 people, making it ideal for celebratory events of all shapes and sizes.
Then, in June 2009, the Bavarian opened at one of the world’s most iconic spots – Bondi Beach – allowing patrons the chance to call by for refreshments and refuelling after catching a wave or two.
The following year it was time to give the North Shore a taste of something new, with Chatswood emerging as a true ‘local’ by attracting a loyal fan base.
In November 2010, Bavarian Bier Café ventured interstate and setting up on the shores of the Brisbane River at iconic site Eagle Street Pier. Locals quickly converted this spacious spot overlooking the river into a post-work and weekend retreat.
In 2011, we saw two new venues added to the group – Chatswood now has a North Shore sibling thanks to the launch of Crows Nest, and our friends on the Gold Coast are celebrating the opening of Broadbeach, perfectly positioned within the Oracle development site.
