Although Fat Tuesday typically falls in the month of February, this year the Mardi Gras celebration is taking place on Tuesday, March 5. Just because you don’t live in New Orleans doesn’t mean you can’t take part of the festivities in New York City! Check out the events below taking place near The Octagon to get in on the celebration.


Hofbrau Bierhaus NYC Mardi Gras – Hofbrau Bierhaus is taking part in the Mardi Gras festivities by throwing their own German Karenval Party on Friday, March 1. Kicking off at 7pm, everyone will receive a free round of beer with the tapping of the Karneval Keg to get the party started. While there enjoy live music, drink specials and much more.


Overlook – You can’t go wrong with the Mardi Gras celebration at Overlook, taking place on Fat Tuesday, March 5.

Enjoy bites off the exclusive Mardi Gras menu which feature New Orleans-inspired specialties like seafood gumbo, creole crab cakes, shimp po-boy and a Cajun burger.
