Guests Indulge in Germany's Finest Traditions at One Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal
LISBON, PORTUGAL -- (Marketwired) -- Oktoberfest may have begun in Munich, but as the Lisbon Marriott Hotel proves, its traditions of good food, good friends and, of course, good beer, have inspired the rest of the world. This October, the hotel's Citrus Bar & Restaurant will host its own beer festival to the delight of locals and visitors alike.
Although Citrus Bar & Restaurant is known among Lisbon restaurants for its Mediterranean and Portuguese cuisine, the eatery is embracing all things Germanic between 7 and 11 p.m. on October 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 17 and 18.
For just 32EUR per person, guests can partake in the festival's abundance of activities. An all-you-can-eat, Bavarian-style buffet will feature selections like "Falscher Hase" (German meat loaf) and pork knuckle, while the price of admission also includes three steins of Erdinger beer. (Additional beers are 7EUR each.) The choice of Erdinger, the world's largest wheat beer brewery with a lineage dating back to 1886, speaks to the Lisbon bar's commitment to creating an authentic Oktoberfest experience.
As guests eat and drink their fill, they can hit the dance floor as part of the festival's all-you-can-dance activity. Frequent club goers will not necessarily have the upper hand, though: For the duration of the festival, modern beats will take a backseat to the traditional German music pounding from the speakers. But even wallflowers can join in on the all-you-can-win contests where prizes like restaurant vouchers are up for grabs.
After the festival, guests of this 4-star hotel in Lisbon can look forward to a good night's sleep in the comfortable guest rooms, which feature down comforters, cotton-rich linens and private balconies overlooking the city or garden. Rested and refreshed, visitors will then be primed to relax by the garden pool the next day, or atone for any overindulgences in the fitness center. And breakfast at the Citrus Bar & Restaurant the next morning is a great way to continue Oktoberfest's best traditions of eating, drinking and being merry.
