Oktoberfest euphoria at the Hilton

It's Oktoberfest and the world's largest beer festival is happening at Munich. We in Chennai headed over to the Vintage Bank, Hilton Chennai for the festivities which were kick-started with a launch party. A barrel of beer was rolled in and tapped open by the German Deputy Consul General. Beer glasses were filled and in no time, we were all celebrating Oktoberfest Chennai style, in balmy weather!

Beer cocktail for the early birds

The deck outside the bar was decorated with Bavarian colours. We sipped on cold, cold beer and feasted on pretzels, 5 kinds of sausages, beer braised meats, schnitzel and sauerkraut (and lots of other yummy nibbles as well).

There were competitions too; for the men, on who could down a glass of beer the fastest. For the ladies, there was beer fishing. Of course, there was much laughter and merriment and the evening ended with a train dance that looped its way through the deck and into the adjoining restaurant.

Oktoberfest at the Vintage Bank is on till October 7th and yes, you need to book in advance.
