Oktoberfest at City of Dreams Manila

A month full of revelry awaits patrons of the City of Dreams Manila this October with beer samplings from around the world and rich cuisine from various countries in celebration of Germany’s Oktoberfest.

The new integrated resorts casino kicks off celebrations on October 8 and 10 with “Prost!” – an event that will transform The Café into a holiday pub overflowing with beer, bar chow and music from the renowned oompah show band Die Dorf Fest Kapelle. In the best Bavarian Oktoberfest tradition, the oompah band will perform on an elevated stage with Bavarian blue and white banners streaming from The Café’s high ceiling. Steins brimming with imported brews will be held aloft as merrymakers call for a toast, with the revelry made even more cheerful as they relish traditional German dishes prepared by The Café’s chefs led by German-born Executive Chef Michael Luedtke.

“Prost!” tickets are priced at P2,388 net, which includes a dinner buffet, free-flowing beer and seats at The Café’s Oktoberfest tent area. As there is limited seating, advance reservations are recommended. For more information, call +63 2 691 1234 ext. 1149, or visit
