Forget Mardi Gras, it's Oktoberfest! Bierhaus, the Bavarian beer hall that the owners of Bull's Head Tavern and Whiskey River are bringing to the Grand Central area, will open on Thursday with a traditional keg-tapping at 8 p.m. and the music of Alpine Squeeze. We’ve already told you about the bi-level space’s communal tables, skylight, and balcony — now it’s time to take a look inside! After you’ve clicked through the slideshow, check out the extensive menu and the much less extensive beer list (yup, it's all Hofbräu, all the time).
