New Bavarian-style Beer House set for Glasgow's city centre hoping to open in time for Oktoberfest.

Bavaria Brau Haus, the new independent venue from Raymond Codona, will be opening at 30 Bothwell Street. The A-listed building was formerly the site of Madness Theatre of Fun and will now be home to what the owners hope will be the biggest German-themed licensed premises in the city, when it opens later this year.

Offering some of the best beers from Germany’s famous brewing region as well as some traditional German cuisine, the establishment will give visitors a taste of all things Bavaria.

The full range of beers that will be on offer hasn’t been confirmed, though it will most likely feature some of the most famous Bavarian beers including Lowenbrau, Paulaner, Augustiner and Spaten.

The venue’s food offering will focus on German flavours and dishes using locally sourced ingredients and will include dishes like Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle), Schnitzel (veal) and a traditional Bavarian sausage.

The layout of the Brau Haus will take over both floors in the building and will include a mezzanine with additional seating. While the interior will be designed to reflect the unique decorations and classic aesthetics of a traditional German Beer Hall.

Glasgow artist Nichol Wheatley will paint a one-of-a-kind mural across the ceiling of the building.

Raymond Codona said in a recent interview with STV: “The Bavarian culture is such a vibrant and atmospheric one, that the opportunity to replicate it in Scotland, especially in Glasgow, is truly fantastic.

“We’ve spent a lot of time researching the traditional institutions of Munich, particularly the famous Hofbrauhaus, which is the key influence for this project.

“The products we offer are completely unique to Scotland and this kind of concept has never been delivered on such a scale as this.

“We believe this will be the perfect compliment to Glasgow’s vibrant and buzzing bar and restaurant culture.”
