Sep Hotel Indigo Presents Ode to Oktoberfest 2018

Fall brings many good things to Long Island’s East End and one of the best is the annual Ode to Oktoberfest at Hotel Indigo. This year, we’re celebrating on Saturday, September 29th, with music, food, contests and, of course, Bavarian brews.

Warsteiner Premium Pilsner is once again the beverage of choice. We like Warsteiner because it’s a traditional, German family brewery, nine generations in the making. The family takes pride in using only high-quality ingredients, which include soft water from the natural spring in the Arnsburg forest. When you purchase a ticket to the Ode to Oktoberfest event, we’ll gift you a souvenir stein full of Warsteiner.

That’s not all though. Hotel Indigo East End brings the pastoral setting of Warsteiner’s Germany to you with its virtual reality tour of Warstein, the Arnsberg Forest and the Hallertau hop region. (Here’s a sneak peek of the VR experience.) Plus, Warsteiner presents its traditional keg-tapping ceremony and mug-holding contest. Get ready to strike your best pose!

And Hotel Indigo knows it takes more than great German beer to truly celebrate Oktoberfest. That’s why Bistro 72 will be serving up traditional Bavarian food for a complete culinary experience. Speaking of a complete experience, we can’t forget music.

Get into the Oktoberfest spirit with Smitty’s Polka Band, an NYC-based act that’ll top off a perfect night with traditional Bavarian sounds, costumes and authentic instruments.

Tickets for Hotel Indigo’s Ode to Oktoberfest can be purchased online for $15 via ticketfly, or for $20 at the door. If you’re planning to bring a large group, give us a call to ask about group rates.

Stay all night and reserve our Oktoberfest room package, which includes brunch the following day at Bistro 72. Secure your reservation by calling Hotel Indigo East End at (631) 369-2200, ext. 0, or by emailing kreyes@eastendhotels.com. We can’t wait to celebrate Ode to Oktoberfest 2018, and we hope to see you there.
