The German Club

East Brisbane

For a rollicking good night in an old-fashioned community setting the German Club, one of Brisbane’s best longtime instituions, is the place. While the food is hearty and cheap, it plays second fiddle to the retro beer hall setting and the lederhosen-clad entertainer.

Mains run the gamut of traditional German fare like Frikadellan (rissoles), Leberkaes(meatloaf) and Sauerbraten (beef pot roast in red wine) to schnitzels, pork knuckle and sausages and almost everything comes with mashed potato and sauerkraut. Most meals range from $12 to $20 and there’s a choice of three kids meals including chips and salad for $6, coming in at roughly half the price of certain chain family restaurants. And of course all drinks are at club prices.

The long banquet style tables with loads of space around make it a great place for families and groups and once the live music starts (everything from German classics to Lady Gaga) the dance floor becomes a major child magnet. As kitsch as it all sounds, it doesn’t stop the 20 something hipsters from piling in and it this, a real cross-section of the community enjoying themselves under one roof that it is the secret of the club’s charm.
