What's On HK

WEEKENDER: Bierfest, Burn The Floor, Design Mart and more!

19 October, 2012

Let the creative juices flow this weekend by getting caught up in the sizzling sensations of Latin America or immerse yourself in the wonders of up-and-coming designers. Not the creative type? Then head for a Bierfest instead!

Get out the lederhosen!
The real Oktoberfest in Germany might be over… but that doesn’t mean the beer drinking stein-clinking behavior has stopped in Hong Kong! Come celebrate at the Marco Polo Bierfest, the largest outdoor German Bierfest in Asia set against the stunning backdrop of Victoria Harbour. You can chow down on authentic German food (bring on the sausages, sauerkraut and pretzels!), say cheers with a wide selection of German beers and dance the night away to the stomping live band. We’ll “prost” to that!

When: Until 10 November, 6-11pm (11.30pm on Fri & Sat)
Where: Viewing Platform, Level 6, Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel, Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong
How much: $120 (includes 1 beer), Fri & Sat $220 (includes 1 beer and mug), www.hkticketing.com, 3128 8288

SASSY GIVEAWAY: Not enough Oktoberfest action for you? We’ve got three pairs of tickets to give away for the Erdinger Oktoberfest next Friday at the Indian Recreation Club! There’ll be even more great food, drink, fun and games, all led by famous Munich band The Flying Sausages (love the name!) – so get your entries in here now!

Burn baby burn!
Be warned… after watching the sizzling Latin American and ballroom dance production Burn the Floor, you are likely to have a sudden urge to grab your nearest partner and start cha cha-ing all around the streets of Central! See 22 dancers from around the world perform amazing dances like the Samba, Pasa Doble, Jive, Foxtrot and many more – it’s seriously the hottest ticket in town!

When: Until 28 October, Tues-Fri 8pm, Sat 4pm & 8pm, Sun 2:30pm & 7pm
Where: Lyric Theatre, HKAPA, 1 Gloucester Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong
How much: $350-950, www.hkticketing.com, 3128 8288
