We’ll Prost to that!
In the pre-Covid days (remember them?), it’s safe to say London had a lovely relationship with a good ol’ German-style beer hall. I mean, who wouldn’t fall head over heels for the steins; the long biergarten tables; and a bit of lederhosen thrown in for good measure.
So, now that things are opened up again, let’s get back in the swing of all that, shall we? West London favourites have a six-week treat for us during Oktoberfest 2021, as they turn their famous rooftop into a “Wunderbar”.
From September 18, the largest alfresco bar in west London will transform into a sublime beer hall, doing their best impression of the Theresienwiese in Munich. Think real German beers, incredible Bavarian grub (more on that to come), live DJs and steins flying all over the gaff. Plus, Camden Town brewery have a special collaborative brew planned for the occasion.
Across the six week stint, Pergola will welcome Oom-pah bands, bottomless “Wunderbrunches”, gingerbread house building, a ‘Pink’ LGBT+ Oktoberfest party, plus an opportunity for guests to win free beer for a whole year. Essentially, Wunderbar at Pergola is going to be a busy six weeks of excitement.
Oh, and we couldn’t leave without describing the simply mouthwatering munch on offer at Wunderbar. You’re looking at the likes of Knödel, poached and fried potato dumplings served with a beer butter dip; classic bratwurst baguettes; hot smoked salmon flammkuchen, a mountain pizza with crème fraîche, caramelised onions, gruyère cheese and flaked hot smoked salmon; plus stollen bites and cinnamon sugar doughnuts filled with hot apple. Told you it sounded incredible.
Wunderbar at Pergola Paddington will run from September 18 – October 31. Tickets start from £10 and are now available to purchase online here. Each ticket includes a stein.
