The Last Oktoberfest

Deutsches Haus , a long time center of German-American heritage in New Orleans, hosts an annual Oktoberfest celebration in Lower Mid-City, replete with various German beers, a pleasant biergarten, and polka music.

The Cultural Center itself screens German films, including a few that played recently directed by the infamous yet talented Leni Reifenstahl.

i love deutsches haus. always a good conversation waiting at the bar.

also, their women's bathroom smells strangely delicious (a mixture of rose and clove with a touch of sugar).

i will miss deutsches haus and its bathroom! and its delicious beer! and its ballroom with the movie screen!
