This event is SOLD OUT.
From the flower boxes adorning the windows to the homestyle German memorabilia accenting the interior, Gasthof Zur Gemutlichkeit German restaurant truly lives up to its name, which translates to a “guesthouse where everyone feels welcome.” Providing a place for those of German heritage to connect with their familial roots and for those of other backgrounds to experience genial German culture, Gasthof Zur Gemutlichkeit completes the culinary experience with infectious, lively German music.
