High Altitude Oktoberfest at 230 5th
Oktoberfest 2012 in New York City will take on a new vertical dimension with the entry of 230 FIFTH into the roster of salutes to the annual beer bacchanalia. Five German beers and two Germanic gastronomic classics will supplement the considerable attractions of Manhattan’s largest Rooftop Garden and Penthouse Lounge, when 230 FIFTH inaugurates its first Oktoberfest celebration, Sept. 22 to Oct. 7. Beck’s Oktoberfest, St. Pauli Girl, Spaten Oktoberfest, Hacker-Pschorr and Paulaner will be added to the rooftop bar’s libations list for the duration, along with a bratwurst and cucumber potato salad platter and a custom made giant pretzel to soak up some of the suds. All the Oktoberfest brews will be priced at $6 a bottle, $8 for a half liter mug and $16 for a full liter mug, while both the bratwurst platter and the pretzel will go for $9.
At Ocktoberfest’s mid-point, Saturday Sept. 29, from noon to 6 p.m. , 230 FIFTH will up the oomph of its German accented brew-haha with a Sky High Oktoberfest Fete, when the rooftop bar’ s already memorable atmosphere with its wunderbar 360 degree views of the Manhattan skyline, will be furthered enhanced by toe-tapping Bavarian oompah music, Teutonic inspired games with prizes and a fall forward décor of pumpkins and corn stalks. As always at 230 FIFTH, there will be no cover for the Sky High Oktoberfest Fete or any of 230 FIFTH’s High Altitude Oktoberfest festivities.
230 FIFTH’s Oktoberfest German beer and food offerings will be presented daily Sept. 22 through Oct. 7 from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. The Oktoberfest brews will also be available during 230 FIFTH’s popular weekend brunch, Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m
