Love relaxing and unwinding by the beach? From 5th October, consider heading to Sentosa in the evenings, as the Oktoberfest celebrations will kick off about three months’ worth of Thirsty Thursday deals at beachside bars, restaurants, hotels and attractions across the resort island.
Between 5th and 8th October, F&B outlets at Siloso Beach are celebrating Oktoberfest with authentic German beer and cuisines served by staff in traditional Bavarian costumes. Watch German music performances and take part in games including Hammer a Nail, Speed Cage Soccer and Golf Bunker Challenge.
Participating F&B outlets have partnered with Singapore’s only German Microbrewery – Paulaner Bräuhaus, to provide an exclusive Oktoberfest experience.
Enjoy live music with your cold brew.
Visitors to the Sapphire Pavilion may be “persuaded” to participate in a Chicken Dance in the midst of your Oktoberfest celebrations!
I’m not a huge fan of beers, but I have to say that this beer was really smooth and was quite enjoyable!
Some of the Oktoberfest fare include dishes like Traditional Pork Knuckle, Bavarian Meat Patties, Gourmet Sausages and Roasted Capon Chicken.
