Zum Schneider, the original Bavarian Bierhaus in NYC owned by Sylvester Schneider, once again presents Munich on the East River, an unforgettable and traditional München Oktoberfest experience. Zum Schneider hosts its annual event for the fifth time, by following the age old traditions of Oktoberfest typically celebrated in Munich for over 200 years.
Fully decorated traditional Oktoberfest tent with original furniture (Garnituren), an Oompah band stage, general & reserved seating area and an elevated VIP section.
Original Oktoberfest beers on tap include: HB Traunstein Festbier, Andechs Festbier (both Zum Schneider exclusives in NYC) and Weihenstephaner Festbier, served in authentic Masskrügen = 1L glass Steins. Other drinks include white wine, German hard cider, soft drinks and bottled water.
All food served in the tent is based on the traditions of the Munich Oktoberfest and includes: Wiesn-Hendl & Haxn (Oktoberfest roast chicken & pork shank), Giant Pretzels, Brat- and Weisswurst and much more. Vegetarian options available. See the full menu below.
Live music with Mösl Franzi & the JaJaJa’s plus special guests playing a variety of traditional Oompah music and Wiesn hits (modern hit songs and singalongs), starting shortly after doors open throughout the day/evening. DJ Volka Racho entertains in between sets.
Vendor Stands outside the tent selling roasted almonds, cotton candy, gingerbread hearts, giant Brezn, Bratwurst, Steckerlfish (grilled mackerel) and more.
