Dubai’s most famous Oktoberfest tent is back

One of Dubai's most popular Oktoberfest tents is back for 2019.

The Grand Hyatt Dubai is gearing up for its 13th annual and hugely popular Oktoberfest celebrations.

If you’re a long-time expat you’ll know it’s a right shindig but if you’re new to the city, expect a big Bavarian bash in the massive tent which transforms into all things Deutsche.

The festival will run from Wednesday October 9 until Saturday October 26 and there will be German grub and hops, live entertainment from the band Die Kirchdorfer who are being flown in from Munich especially for the occasion, lots of dancing and a cracking atmosphere.

Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays are an over 21s only party from 7pm until 2am and it’s Dhs150 a head for entrance and a buffet featuring traditional German bites, while Saturdays are for the family.

Head down from 12.30pm until 4pm with the little ones in tow and enjoy for a family-friendly Bavarian brunch. Packages start at Dhs250 for soft drinks or Dhs350 which includes hops and grape and little ones from five to 11 years old can dine for half-price.

You will be served by traditionally-dressed waiters and waitresses and everyone is encouraged to dress up in their best German-inspired garb so don’t be shy about sporting lederhosen or a dirndl dress.

Get ready to party, Bavarian style.

The Irish Village (which also happens be our Pub of the Year from the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2019) is throwing its own four-night Oktoberfest celebration and German bar Brothaus is also hosting its very own version of Germany’s legendary annual event.
