About Us

Hours of Operation

We open at 4pm Monday- Friday, and at 12pm Saturday & Sunday.  Please check back for holiday hours.

Are there any age restrictions?

Great question!!! The answer is…..YES! Sauf Haus Bier Hall & Garten is a 21 and up establishment. This means you must be AT LEAST 21 years of age to enter. There are ZERO exceptions to this rule. Thanks for understanding.


Seating at the bier hall is communal and on a first come, first served basis so we do not take reservations.  With 3 different bars to choose from, groups are always welcome.  With this in mind, we can accommodate large parties of 20 or more, please contact events@saufhausdc.com for more information.

Do you have any happy hour specials?

Happy Hour specials are offered every weekday from 4pm-7pm. We offer $2 off all beer, wine, spirits, pretzels and platters (does not include a la carte menu).  Please check our homepage for news and events.

Do you have a full bar?

Though our focus is on quality German drafts, we do carry a selection of craft, premium spirits, red and white wine, American craft beer in cans and cider.  We also offer a selection of “biertails.”

Can I buy my dad/friend/boss/girlfriend/boyfriend a gift certificate?

Gift certificates are available, please call or stop in to speak with a manager.  We only issue gift certificates on-premise, we do not sell them online so beware of sketchy websites!

Bro, you guys showing the Redskins game?

We support our local teams whenever possible.  As a European-focused establishment, we also partner with local fan clubs to show international soccer matches.  Otherwise, games are shown on a first come, first served basis.

I’m like 100% sure I lost my keys/wallet/smarttrip/bikeshare key there, have you seen it?

While Sauf Haus is not responsible for any personal belongings, patrons often turn in unclaimed items found throughout the night.   The best way to contact us regarding your lost item is by email, events@saufhausdc.com.

BRO, can we play flip cup on the roof?


It’s my best friend’s birthday! Can we bring in a cake?

Yes! With prior consent…please email events@saufhausdc.com.

Can my dog hang out with me while a smoke a cigarette and drink a beer?

For the safety and comfort of all our guests, unfortunately dogs nor cigarette smoking are allowed.

My co-workers love this place! Can we organize a happy hour/fundraiser/holiday party/going away party there?

Yes! Please note that tables in our Biergarten (rooftop, deck bar) are available only on a first come, first serve basis. We do not reserve tables in this space.  Our Biergarten, Pub-In-Biergarten and Foosball Bar are all available for private events.
