Vancouver Is Getting A 17-Day Oktobeerfest Wunderbar Pop-Up


Celebrate Oktoberfest as the Germans do with a 17-day-long festival at Bells & Whistles. Mark your calendars—the Oktobeerfest Wunderbar Pop-up will kick off Friday, September 21st.

The eatery has only been open for a year and they’re marking their first anniversary in the best way possible. The exclusive pop-up will feature Oktoberfest-themed eats and sips, as well as decor.

Bells & Whistles will transform itself into a Bavarian-inspired beer hall for just over two weeks. Guests are encouraged to dress in Oktoberfest attire and hoist their steins for an evening fit for Germans.

Hit up the bar for classic German beers like Dunkel and Hefeweizen.

A revamped menu will include warm pretzels with tangy honey mustard, currywurst, an Oktoberfest-style platter (crispy pork schnitzel, Two Rivers bratwurst, rosemary bacon, braised house-made sauerkraut, German potato salad, mustard and pickles) and last but not least—an apple strudel soft serve (caramel apple compote, pie crust).

“Oktoberfest is the perfect occasion to tap into some unique beer styles and have a little fun with some homespun German-inspired food specials,” says Iranzad. “This is the exact type of celebration that really captures the casual-dining-and-beer-hall atmosphere we had in mind when we first envisioned this restaurant.”
