Oktoberfest is one of the highlights of the year for the DubaiLAD team when we eat and drink our own body weight in German products!
Oktoberfest is back once again with The Retreat at the Westin Abu Dhabi throwing a four-week party starting from Wednesday, September 22. And running until Saturday, 16 October.
Oktoberfest, for the few that don’t know, is a famous German festival that celebrates all things beer, food and music.
The original festival in Munich attracts millions and it’s grown into a worldwide phenomenon with events across the globe.
The real draws are the food and drinks on offer.
Food-wise, the classics are all present and correct including Pretzel Baskets, Sauerkraut and the Bavarian Cold Cut Platter. And it wouldn’t be Oktoberfest without their amazing range of sausages including Chili Cheese Krainer Sausages, Grilled Curry Sausages. Bavarian White Sausages and Grilled Bratwurst.
The other key ingredient to make the party go with a swing is the drinks. We recommend going with the Beer O’Clock menu which will give you six half-pints of Bavarian beer for AED200. Hic!
The food and drink festival will be held across several indoor and outdoor arenas at the Abu Dhabi Westin and will be soundtracked by traditional Bavarian music.
The free-entry Oktoberfest runs daily from 12 noon until 1 am at The Retreat, The Westin Abu Dhabi.
