Greek Weekend

With Paniyiri pushed back to October due to the wet weather, The Greek Club is putting on a two-day postponement party.

Thanks to Brisbane's soggy May weather — and following on from the city's wet and wild end to summer as well — Paniyiri is no longer happening this month. Instead, the beloved food, booze and culture festival has been pushed back to October. But that doesn't mean you can't still treat your tastebuds to all things Greek across the weekend of Saturday, May 21–Sunday, May 22.

Slotting into the rescheduled fest's dates, Greek Weekend is the party that the Greek Club is throwing when it's not taking part in the usual Paniyiri festivities. Expect two days of bites to eat, Greek wine and Greek music, and even a Greek dance party.

Head to the venue's Nostimo restaurant and bar for a meze lunch or dinner over drinks, or sip Greek vino — and beers — on the terrace from midday on both days.

Greek tunes will echo through the building across the two afternoons, while Saturday night will see its Olympus Room host a Greek taverna night — aiming to really make you feel like you've been transported to Europe — and Sunday evening is when DJs will hit the decks spinning Greek tracks, house and R&B.
