The team at Munich Brauhaus (formerly the Lowenbrau Keller) in The Rocks are getting ready for their first ever celebration of St Nick Day on 16 December. They're decking the halls with festive decorations and bringing the Christmas cheer in two sessions, a day session and an evening session.
There will be biers aplenty as you take part in Christmas games and challenges, enjoy entertainment and a whole lot of fun, German style. Not just for humans, you can bring your pooch with you and they too can get in on the fun.
Throw on your merriest threads as they're looking to set a record for the largest gathering of St Nicks in one place. Prizes for the best dressed will be given and this applies to your pooches as well.
The day session begins at 12pm with a huge festive lunch that includes items from their a la carte menu, such as starters of pretzels and chicken wings, German and Christmas platters, banquets, signature dishes of crackling pork belly and crispy pork knuckle, mains of ravioli and lamb rump as well as their classic schnitzels and much, much more.
At 1pm, fun Christmas challenges take place on stage with the Oompah Band and a prize for best dressed Nick will be awarded. At 2pm, it's the Dogs of Christmas Contest with all pooches receiving a doggy bag of goodies for them and the owner of the best dressed winner being awarded a $200 voucher.
The evening session starts at 6pm with Christmas games and challenges, along with the resident Oompah Band on the main stage and, then at 7pm, the Keg Tap occurs before best dressed evening Nick is announced at 8pm.
Each session is free but you will need to book via their website or by phoning 9247 7785. Bookings are for a 2hr period and all you pay for is what you eat and drink, the amount of which is up to you.
So get in quick for this jolly themed day, raise a stein to St Nick (the patron saint that helped the needy) and party like Oktoberfest never ended.
