Oktoberfest at Lime Bar
Stroll in between 6pm and 9pm from Monday 19 September to Friday 30 September to indulge in, happy hour style, unlimited servings of the German classic beers Erdinger Weissbier and Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel. Or if guests prefer something closer to home, local favourite Tiger Beer is part of the free flow package at LIME Bar on the street level of the hotel for S$68++.
An à la carte snack menu is available to ensure no one has to drink on an empty stomach if they don’t wish to, while groups of four will be treated to a complimentary German food platter with Kartoffel Salad, assorted German sausages, cold cuts and more to complete the Oktoberfest experience at the eco-chic hotel. If enjoying your beers in a more laid back arena while watching the world go by is your thing, LIME Bar will be the perfect choice.
