Celebrate Oktoberfest at Steinhaus Keller


Nestled in the heart of historic Hot Springs, on the bottom of the 100-year-old grotto of Spencer’s Corner, lays a quaint restaurant with an outdoor Biergarten. It is here you will find “Real Good German.”

Steinhaus Keller is a perfect name for this two-year-old German establishment. Translated from German to English, the name of the restaurant literally means stone cellar. Owners David McGuire and Amanda Mitchell have really outdone themselves by transforming the previously occupied space into an authentic and fun culturally themed German atmosphere.

October 2nd and 3rd, Steinhaus Keller will be hosting their own Oktoberfest. Dubbed the “Wurst Party in Hot Springs,” David and Amanda invite everyone to practice their yodel and don their lederhosen while gathering at their haus for food, bier and music.

Steinhaus Keller offers the largest selection of German beer in Arkansas. Enjoy one of the many draft beers out in the Biergarten, served by resident bartender Bret. If you want to stick to German tradition, try the Spaten Oktoberfest on tap. It’s the world’s first Oktoberfest beer.

Pair your beer with one of the many appetizers available. Try the Giant Bavarian Pretzel served with bier cheese or the Saurkraut Cakes served with creamy horseradish sauce.

Don’t forget to save room for dessert. The German Chocolate Cake (Schokolade Kuchen) is to die for.

Steinhaus Keller is located at 801 Central Ave in Hot Springs, Arkansas in the lower level of Spencer’s Corner.

A little about .

There's a lot to celebrate in Arkansas. It's unique. Southern. Delightfully eccentric. Which is why we love every nook, cranny, cave and corner. In fact, some of our favorite things can't be found anywhere else. They're only in Arkansas. So we love them even more. The attractions we visit, the food we crave, the festivals we attend, the mountains we hike, the rivers we float, the stories we tell and the company we keep – it all adds up to one incredible state. And that familiar, meandering silhouette? Looks like home to us.
