It’s time to get on your Lederhosen and head down to The Wharf on Friday, 12 October for German beer, food and music to celebrate the annual festival known as Oktoberfest. This year promises to be bigger and better than the last, so it’s definitely a night you don’t want to miss.
The fun gets going at 5.30pm when the house DJ starts the music. Prepare for a mixture of modern hits and classic Oktoberfest tracks as the evening wends merrily on. Whilst you get ready to show off your international dancing skills, you can sup on some Dutch (or German) courage in the form of classic beers in bottles or on tap. If your Bavarian gear is at the dry cleaners, never fear! You can purchase Oktoberfest T-shirts in The Wharf Shop so you can feel like one of the gang.
Make sure to bring your appetite along as the chef has prepared a menu with items that may seem foreign to some, but to Oktoberfest fans they are as familiar as Märzen. Mouthwatering dishes such as grilled German sausage with sauerkraut, Wiener schnitzel, baked cheese spaetzle and apple strudel must all be tried in order for you to be considered a true Oktoberfest participant. It might be an idea to make a reservation for a table so you can ensure you have a great seat for the evening.
Speaking of genuine Bavarian cuisine and frothy beers, how about a man on an accordion or squeezebox? What Oktoberfest would be complete without some good old-fashioned tunes played on the instrument for which they were written? Close your eyes, and apart from the warm temperatures, you’ll swear you’re in the Alps.
The Wharf is one of the Cayman Islands’ most familiar and beloved restaurants and bars, positioned in an ideal location overlooking the Caribbean Sea. For years people have flocked to its doors to indulge in a sumptuous meal whilst taking in the unparalleled view. They also head there for memorable occasions and special events such as Oktoberfest, where they can socialise and dance the night away.
You need to mark 12 October on your calendars and make your way to The Wharf for this terrific evening out. With entertainment, special beers and a unique menu, it’s the only way to bring Bavaria to the Caribbean.
