German film director Uwe Boll is stirring up a frenzy with his new award-winning restaurant known for its modern twist on German cuisine and exceptional service.
Uwe Boll knew that the Bauhaus movement was the perfect foundation to create his restaurant from. The Bauhaus movement, developed in the early 20th century, is characterised through function shapes with occasional abstract shapes for design, using steel, concrete, and glass to achieve the typical look. Balancing this influential movement with high-end food, Uwe Boll ended up creating a sophisticated and practical space, ultimately creating a design where every form has a purpose in his restaurant.
Fine Dining Restaurant in Vancouver BC
The Boulder Hotel in Gastown is one of Vancouver’s most unique historic building and also the perfect location for Bauhaus. The Boulder Hotel was originally built in 1890, changing through many hands and functions over the last 100 years. Initially created as a saloon, it changed to a bank, then finally, a hotel. Designing the restaurant was led by Andrea Greenway. Through careful consideration and planning, the restaurant manages to work with the historic space, where an open-concept kitchen is visible from a fine dining room and large lounge area.
Food and Flavours
Matching the style of the Bauhaus movement where every form has a function, this is mirrored in each ingredient. Beginning with the process of sourcing the best quality ingredients, the chefs ensure each flavour contributes to the overall plate.
Due to sourcing only the very best, Bauhaus offers a seasonal changing ‘tasing menu’, highlighting Chef David Mueller’s creativity and imagination. An ‘a la carte’ menu allows patrons to choose individual items which are perfect for sharing and feature smaller bites, while the ‘mains menu’ could be enjoyed as a main course or to share too.
The ‘family style’ menu takes elements from traditional German cuisine such as comfort, heart, and soul, with the modern touch of fresh and nuanced flavours.

White Asparagus is Here! It’s a little known fact that Germans love their white asparagus. Know in Germany as spargel, edible ivory, or even white gold, it’s the vegetable of kings. Part of the allure may be because the vegetable has a short growing season – usually mid-April to mid-June. The white asparagus also has a more intensive growing process where the vegetable must be completely covered to avoid any production of chlorophyll. We are now featuring our white asparagus across our menu.
