7 Places In Mumbai To Celebrate The Oktoberfest Close To Home


How we wish we were in Germany right now. The Oktoberfest has just kicked off in Munich, promising sixteen fun days filled with music, food and (most importantly) beer. Sadly, we can’t quite afford to jet off to Germany just yet. So, we’re going to be heading to these mini Oktoberfests in Mumbai instead. Will we be seeing you there?



BlueFrog has put together an all new menu with German dishes like Hanchen Schitzel, Currywurst and Shweinebraten that are paired with imported beers. There’s a buy one get one free offer on domestic beers for the festival!

JW Café


Savour a buffet of Bavarian treats at the swanky JW Café at the JW Mariott, Sahar this September. Look out for the chicken frikaden, pork goulash, pork sausages and pork currywurst sausages. While German food is best known for its meaty treats, vegetarians can enjoy a variety of potato preparations along with a collection of other vegetables. Of course, there’ll be authentic German beer available!
