As of last year, a little piece of Germany has graced the ever-evolving 12th Avenue corridor in Capitol Hill (and as of this August, the bustling venue got a boost with a brand-new name). Rhein Haus (formerly known as Von Trapp's) reigns as Capitol Hill's very own 10,000-square-foot piece of Bavaria. With the perfect trifecta of bier, bratwursts and bocce, this venue bustlings most evenings. Authentic Bavarian fare here includes house-made sausages and pretzels, naturally accompanied by an extensive assortment of beer (24 drafts featuring both European and Northwestern brews). Flavorful, unique dishes range from pretzel dumpling soup and the German chop salad to beef goulash, pork schnitzel and all varieties of flammkuchen (crispy German flatbread on house-made sourdough). The expansive space includes the main dining room, an 80-seat bier hall, 53 bar seats, an intimate fire den plus two mezzanines that encircle the main attraction – five indoor bocce ball courts. On sunny days, delighted patrons flock to the outdoor biergarten, which also features an additional bocce court and bar.
