Say cheers to this place and then glug down all you can of their fine craft brews for just INR 1,500. While the catch is that you get the unlimited offer for only three hours, we’re certain you can do enough justice to that. Trust us, we tried for your sake. They even have small plates with German specials, so expect sausages, sauerkraut, pork chops and the potato salad.

Where: Old Airport Road, next to Leela Palace

When: Until October 4, 11am-8pm

Price: INR 1,500 per person

“It’s possible to have a life without Weißwurst, but pointless,” said some wise person. And we agree. Luckily, District 6 believes this too, so they’re pulling out all stops on the German-ness of the Oktoberfest. From Bratwurst and Rosemary Lamb Chops to Wiener Schnitzel and obviously Weißwurst, you can eat to your heart’s content. We suggest you ignore your liver’s warnings and load up on their in-house brews too – especially the Smolding King brew with Munich Malts you’ll kill for.

After being open as a brewery, they have finally got beer on tap and are pouring just in time for Oktoberfest. After all they are promoting #ditchthebottle and we’re not complaining! Pick from an English ale, a stout or Belgiam wheat to start with, but since it is a German festival you’re celebrating, carry on the night {or day} with the smooth German bock called Brigade Lager.

Where: 10th Level Prestige Towers, 99/100, Residency Road.

When: Ongoing

Price: INR 1,500 {approx.} for two
