If you missed Oktoberfest this year, don't worry too much because the Bavarian Beerhouse is open all year, offering a constant beer-festival revelry in an authentic beer hall atmosphere. While dancing on the benches and trying to finish your first stein - that's two pints - before everyone else in you party is not compulsory, it certainly sets the right mood. Every day at the Bavarian Beerhouse, in Old Street or Tower Hill, is a celebration of everything cheery, good-natured and fun. Or was that supposed to be beery? I recommend you stick to the delicious Kaltenberg, or Erdinger if you prefer variety, but the option for a glass of wine (which looks very odd on the giant hall tables) or, much later in the evening, a shot of Porno Brause. That's vodka and sherbet and is much harder to drink than it sounds. If you're there as part of a big party - and that is the best way to do it - then order a Jägertrain of 10 Jäger shots in a line that drop into glasses of Red Bull like dominoes...
