The following night, Celebrity Magician Murray Sawchuck helped keep the crowd in the Oktoberfest spirit. The Oktoberfest celebration continues every day through October 31 and features celebrity keg tappers every Friday and Saturday night along with live entertainment, traditional Bavarian fare and plenty of beer.

This year’s keg tappers span a variety of Las Vegas’ well-known strip performers such as Claire Sinclair, Clint Holmes, Australian Bee Gees, Chippendales, Frank Mir, Ricardo Laguna, Rich Little and more. The full line up of keg tappers can be viewed on the restaurant’s website.
One of the highlights of the six weeks of festivities is the limited-time Oktoberfestbier imported straight from the brewery in Munich, Germany. Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is the only place in Nevada where beer lovers can taste the original brew that millions of people drink at the official Oktoberfest celebration in Munich.

“People understand that Oktoberfest is a big deal, and we happen to have the biggest Oktoberfest celebration in town,” said Klaus Gastager, Vice President HBavaria LLC. “It’s all about getting together, having fun with friends, great food, a lot of beer, live entertainment and games. If visitors want to have a good time in Las Vegas, this is the place.”

Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas is the first German/Bavarian beer hall and restaurant in Las Vegas. This faithful reproduction of the world’s most famous beer hall, the original, centuries-old Hofbräuhaus in Munich, Germany, is an authentic and entertaining blend of tradition and fun. From its hand-painted ceilings and live bands to its imported beer and delicious food, Bavarian hospitality abounds – at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas, it is Oktoberfest every day! For more information or to make a reservation, contact Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas at 702.853.BEER (2337), or visit the restaurant’s NEW website online at
