Von Trapp's Has a Few of Our Favorite Things

Beers, bratwurst, and indoor games mean business

von trapp's!

Our hills are normally alive into the wee hours, but one in particular is really rocking now that a bustling new Bavarian moved in.

Meet your noisy Capitol Hill neighbor, Von Trapp’s, officially open for beer, brats, and bocce.

Housed in a former candy factory, Von Trapp’s delivers on the German bier hall promise with authentic touches — a fireside den complete with elk head and colossal fireplace, soaring ceilings, sparkling vintage chandeliers, and dozens of tall wooden tables and benches. A grand staircase leads to one of two mezzanines overlooking five indoor bocce ball courts.

Order from a selection of hearty sausages, including Polish kielbasa, bratwurst, and cheddarwurst, plus sauerkraut, pretzels, mustards, and goulash that are worth the mess. Wash it down with a brew-based cocktail such as an Edelweiss Punch — a potent mix of rum, apricot brandy, Meletti amaro, pineapple, lime, wheat beer, and nutmeg — or one of 100 beers.

Buzzing from all the excitement? Channel your energy into a few rounds of bocce (rumor has it that a league is in the works).

And let the good times roll.
