This hot spot on Capitol Hill is a massive Bavarian-inspired bier hall with plenty of dark wood, Viennese chandeliers, five indoor bocce ball courts, two mezzanines, and three bars. Von Trapp’s is packed every night with people indulging in the house-baked pretzels and beers from across Europe, the United States and Canada, in between spirited games of bocce with new friends. We suggest trying the Edelweiss Punch—a potent blend of rum, apricot brandy, Meletti amaro, pineapple gum, lime, Weissbier and nutmeg. Hungry? Order one of the many house-made sausages—from kielbasa to bratwurst. Go early—as the night wears on, a line starts to form.
