The Bavarian at The Barracks lines up 500 free hotdogs for launch day
Tuesday, 23 July 2019: The Bavarian will open its doors at The Barracks retail precinct in Brisbane’s inner-city suburb of Petrie Terrace on Friday, 2 August 2019, with 500 free hotdogs distributed to customers from 11am.
Located off Caxton Street, in the former Hog’s Breath Café site, The Bavarian is a two-storey restaurant that accommodates around 600 guests, including a 300-seat outdoor beer garden.
The family-friendly restaurant is creating 45 full-time and casual positions and supporting the local economy by engaging around 50 professionals and tradespeople on the project.
Rockpool Dining Group Chief Executive Officer Thomas Pash said he was thrilled to be expanding the Group’s Queensland footprint and bringing The Bavarian, and jobs, to Brisbane.
“Our Bavarian restaurants have a large and loyal following in Queensland and we’re thrilled to be bringing our first daily
deal-packed destination to The Barracks,” Mr Pash said.
“We’re targeting new recruits who are local to Brisbane, know the area, the community and will have a good rapport with customers. The Bavarian has a strong culture of promoting employees who perform well and display leadership qualities, so there are excellent career development opportunities for the right candidates.”

Sport spectators at nearby Suncorp Stadium, and shoppers and moviegoers at The Barracks, will experience a true taste of Bavarian hospitality, from cultural hints in the interior décor, to quintessential dishes and a large range of beers.
The Bavarian at The Barracks will also be teaming up with Deliveroo to bring Brisbane locals the restaurant’s favourite dishes straight to their door, including crispy pork knuckle, crackling pork belly and build-your-own-salads.
There is something for everyone on the menu, including The Bavarian’s legendary pork knuckle, crackling pork belly, a range of classic German and gourmet sausages, shared platters, and an assortment of schnitzels. Lighter bites include chicken wings, spicy squid and build-your-own salads. Also on the menu is a selection of fantastic sharing platters, including The Munich Brewer’s Platter ($72) which features crackling pork belly, crispy pork knuckle, a selection of house-made sausages, chicken schnitzel, sauerkraut, red cabbage, bier jus, mash potatoes and apple compote.
Schnitzel stardom awaits those who can take on The Schnitzelmeister ($80) – a six-stack, chicken schnitzel tower topped with Napoli sauce, ham and cheese and served with four side dishes. Finish The Schnitzelmeister (including all side dishes) in under one hour and receive it for free.
Diners can make the most of Royal Snack Hour, featuring complimentary, premium snacks, from 4pm to 6pm daily. Guests who purchase a selected drink can choose from gourmet sausage rolls, Texan sloppy fries and Cajun popcorn chicken.
Affordable dinner specials are a week-day winner: on Mondays it’s a chicken burger and drink of choice ($15), Tuesdays welcome a two-for-one deal on any regular schnitzel and every Wednesday guests can indulge in refillable All You Can Meat platters ($35 per person). A fantastic, $10 lunch menu is available from Monday to Thursday and every Sunday the focus is on families, with children under the age of 12 eating for free from the kids’ menu.
Complementing the big flavours are even bigger beers. The Bavarian’s 1-litre steins can quench a thirst and there are an impressive 20 beers on tap, including imported favourites Löwenbräu, Franziskaner, Stiegl, Spaten and Hofbräu.
The two-storey restaurant features the same fresh, modern look and feel as The Bavarian family, with bright motifs and artwork, complemented by rustic elements that reflect its Bavarian heritage, including stone walls, alpine timber finishes and large, communal wood tables. Signature features include a custom-designed vintage beer barrel wall, bespoke signage, and an impressive beer stein chandelier holding over 500 1-litre glass steins suspended above a timber bar.
The interior is a contemporary mix of light and dark timber, with an inviting upstairs dining area. An abundance of green plants cascade from hanging baskets, adding a splash of colour and a fresh feel. A long, black bevelled and timber bar is positioned on the ground floor of the restaurant, while an expansive semi-covered deck runs the length of the building and features The Bavarian’s signature, communal dining tables.
A separate outdoor beer garden with lush greenery is positioned at the entrance of the restaurant and is an ideal space for pre-game meals, brews post win, and to host functions and events. There are 12 large-screen TVs throughout the venue which offer an exciting schedule of live sports games and are perfect for sports fans who don’t make it to the stadium.
The Bavarian at The Barracks joins eight other Bavarian restaurants in Queensland, including The Bavarians at Eagle Street Pier, Chermside, Broadbeach, Coomera, Mackay, Toowoomba, and the Sunshine Coast and Munich Brauhaus South Bank.
