Keep the warm weather vibes going with spritzes and seafood by the river.
First, some news that really isn't: the summer of 2020–21 is over, and has been for almost a month. But, inspired by the fact that it's almost time for warm weather in Europe, W Brisbane is partying like it's still the toastiest part of the year.
From Thursday–Sunday each week until May 3, the CBD spot is hosting a new event series it's calling Endless Summer. The venue's level four Wet Deck area has been kitted out with umbrellas, sun lounges, olive trees, and baskets of lemons and oranges, so you can trick your senses into thinking you're in Italy. You'll be looking out over the Brisbane river, though, but you can still put your imagination to work.
On the menu: spritzes and cocktails, plus bites curated by ex-Masterchef contestant Laura Sharrad. Think hand-pickled mud crab and pickled cucumber fingers, gnocco fritto with whipped cod roe and plenty of seafood all round. There'll also be Campari and blood orange granita and yoghurt gelato if you're after something sweet.
