We outside! New Yorkers are celebrating Oktoberfest this year at these 5 spots

We outside! A toast to NYC celebrating Oktoberfest this year…

If you can’t make it to Germany this month for Oktoberfest, New York City got you covered. From juicy sausages to German beer by the tap, these five places are celebrating Oktoberfest right.

1. Celebrating Oktoberfest with The WaterMark could get you a mini keg

The Watermark at Pier 15 in Manhattan is perfect if you want to compliment your authentic German beer with a view.

Located in Manhattan’s historic Seaport District, this spot offers a pleasant view. Let the nice breeze hit you and watch the sunset over the Brooklyn Bridge as you go for another round.

This event is free to attend with VIP Reserved Tables and Express Entry options available.

2. Keep your Oktoberfest real bougie at The Standard Biergarten

Located in the Meatpacking District, underneath the High Line, The Standard Biergarten offers authentic German cuisine, including savory pretzels and juicy bratwurst. The Biergarten is partnering up with Sixpoint Brewery this October in hosting a largescale party on Oct. 13 and 20.

The party will include games, giveaways, a stein-holding competition, and a live Oompah band.

3. Getaway and take a trip with the Bear Mountain Oktoberfest Cruise

When it comes to celebrating Oktoberfest in 2021, cruise and booze on the Hudson with the Circle Line. Sail up the Hudson River to Bear Mountain State Park while drinking onboard beer and eating delicious pork schnitzels.

The cruise will also have onboard live polka music to compliment your experience.

4. Down das boot at the Radegast Hall

It’s an every day Oktoberfest at Brooklyn’s first Authentic Biergarten. Radegast Hall is going all out this year and is celebrating Oktoberfest with authentic German beer and food.

Drink your beer from steins, wear your finest lederhosen and dirndls because the Hall will be having giveaways, music, and competitions.

5. Keep it authentically German by celebrating Oktoberfest at Bierhaus NYC

Located just two blocks from Grand Central station, transport yourself to Munich at Bierhause with Hofbräu Bier. This authentic Bavarian-style beer hall is serving up some satisfying Hofbräu bier by the boot.

Nothing goes good with German beer like German food, and Bierhaus offers a fine selection of traditional German food including their Jägerschnitzel, a breaded pork filet, served potato salad, red cabbage, cucumber salad and topped off with their homemade Jäger sauce.
