Ever wanted to swap drizzly Melbourne for the Greek Islands? Harlow in Richmond has the next best thing. From Saturday, May 20, they're hosting Disco Island: a disco-themed drag show with Greek-inspired food, summer vibes and smashing cocktails.

Harlow is really pulling out all the stops for this one. They're decking out the venue with Greek native plants, like fuchsia pink Bougainvillea, summer aesthetics and disco balls. Did we mention drag queens belting out ABBA's greatest hits?

Food lovers can snack their way around the islands, with grilled flatbread and house-made French onion dip, dolmades stuffed with rice and herbs, chargrilled lamb skewers served with minty tzatziki and crispy chickpeas and even a Greek schnitty. If bacon and egg sangas are more your breakfast speed, there'll be plenty of those too.

There's also a killer Disco Island cocktail menu on offer. Try the Lemonopita with vodka, Frangelico, vanilla and citrus, or maybe the Milopita with fireball, spiced rum and a squeeze of lemon.

Disco Island will be running as a two-hour bottomless brunch every Saturday (11:30am and 2pm) and Sunday (12pm). The whole thing kicks off from May 20 and runs till Harlow is out of vodka (or all winter, whichever comes first). Get all the details on the event page.
