Brat Haus Phoenix

Brat Haus is now open at 6025 N. 16th Street in Phoenix. This is the second Brat Haus in the Valley, joining a sister location in south Scottsdale.

The venue offers a unique, adult-casual approach to dining where guests can order at a counter and expect their meals out in minutes.

The 2,000-square-foot space features 100 total seats and was designed by FJI. It was inspired by the beer gardens of Europe with a modern industrial interpretation. The furniture by Urban Southwest includes tables and chairs made using repurposed wood from demolished homes in nearby areas.
