Launching this week, at 25hours Hotel One Central – the newly opened chic venue to stay, work, chill and play – is Ernst, Dubai’s first, largest and most authentic Biergarten and Wirtshaus.
The new opening promises a traditional Bavarian experience, from the interiors to the authentic cuisine and drinks on tap. Their lush, spacious garden emulates the abundant Bavarian greenery that surrounds guests as they sip on refreshing pints. Ernst is set to be an exceptional venue unlike any other, the first of its kind, recreating the cultural beer garden that Bavarian locals and tourists love to visit, right here in Dubai.
Stepping into the tucked away tavern, guests are transported to a countryside tavern on the outskirts of Southeast Germany. Greeted immediately by lush green interiors, accentuated by ambient lighting and solid, carved wooden furniture that is often found in Germany’s hidden breweries. Upon entry, guests will notice the stein lockers, which will hold personalized steins (that can be purchased on-site) of regular customers that plan to visit often, a personal touch that makes loyal customers feel a part of a community. At the center of the venue, patrons will find a colossal maypole fixed to the ceiling, painted in traditional Bavarian colors – a nod to the time-honoured tradition of erecting a large wooden maypole to commemorate the rich culture of Bavaria.
With a license to serve pork and pork products, Ernst caters to every type of appetite and palate offering classic Bavarian dishes to relish taste buds. On the menu, Ernst’s patrons can find dishes such as the venue’s hero dish, Schweinshaxe gold pork knuckles (AED150), Weisswurst gold original Bavarian sausage (AED55), traditional Bavarian pretzels (starting from AED35), Sauerkraut or pickled German white cabbage (AED20), Wiener schnitzel or veal cutlet (AED100), and more.
The spacious outdoor terrace overlooks the glittering Burj Khalifa, and a place where guests can play curling, a national sport in Bavaria. With a smooth surface to glide a curling stock on, teams compete to throw their curling stock as close as possible to the marked point, or tee, at the end of the course. Throw in a couple of pints of traditional hops, and Bavaria’s rich cuisine, and guests are promised a truly unforgettable experience at Ernst.
For private events, Ernst houses a leisurely private dining room appointed with unique, polished wooden furniture, warm lighting, and a cozy atmosphere – a perfectly unique space for groups seeking a secluded area to host parties or gatherings.
A place where everyone is welcome and treated like family, Ernst aims to be a second home to the diverse demographic in Dubai, offering a taste of home to some and a deeply cultural experience to others. Pouring genuine Bavarian hops such as Paulaner, imported straight from the German state, Ernst is uncompromising in their authenticity, offering an atmosphere similar to that found during Oktoberfest in Munich, year-round.
Ernst is located at the newly launched 25hours Hotel One Central, near the picture-perfect Museum of the Future. Ernst welcomes guests between the hours of 12pm-Midnight from Sundays to Thursdays, and till 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.
