From breweries serving up overflowing steins of authentic German beer to ski-lodge-style venues for your big Bavarian bash, here’s where it’s at in October 2018:
This space is all about the Oktoberfest spirit! They kicked it off with their first German fest last year and managed to attract more than 30,000 people. This authentic Oktoberfest beer tent is able to accommodate a stunning amount of up to 3000 lager lovers at once. Planning a smaller celebration? Erdinger Oktoberfest’s VIP area is what you’re looking for. Prost!
After that famous Munich beer hall atmosphere? If you’ve got a Germanic hankering for a foaming stein or hearty favourites, like tasty currywurst and juicy pork knuckle, this King’s Cross venue can’t be beat. Gallons of bier and comforting Mittel-European dishes will see you foot-tapping and thigh-slapping in no time.
Haven’t made it out to the slopes this year? Not to worry, save yourself a thousand quid and make your way to the Alpine Lodge at Dinerama. This bustling Shoreditch venue boasts log-burning fires, not-quite mountain views and toasty aprés-ski vibes. With room for up to 200, there’s no better place for the ultimate beer-fuelled bash this Oktoberfest.
