Weekend socialising – George’s style

The coming weeks are among the busiest on the annual social calendar as daylight savings, Melbourne Cup then Christmas sees people seek out the opportunity to catch up with friends in the lead-up to the summer holidays.

It’s the time of year when after-work drinks, lunches, brunches and sunset dinners quickly fill any Sydney-sider’s already busy schedule.

If you’re looking to cram some festive catch-ups into the coming months, here’s a guide to packing some serious social punch into a spring or summer weekend…

Friday night

Pens down people, work’s out for the weekend, bringing with it the opportunity to catch up with friends for a casual after-work drink. You’re looking for somewhere central, yet ambient, where busy professionals can meet up for a quick recap of the week that was, or the transformative year that has been.

Friday suggestion

Join us for drinks by the harbour courtesy of our week-day happy hour. From 3pm to 7pm we’ll treat you to a stylish afternoon or evening of affordable wine, beer and some seriously irresistible cocktails.

You can kick back in our al fresco lounge and watching the passing parade as Sydney transforms from work-week caterpillar to social butterfly.

Saturday brunch

Nothing says it’s the weekend quite like a decadent breakfast in well-catered surrounds.

Weekend breakfasts are the chance to embrace a less formal setting and kick off hard-earned relaxation on just the right social note. Breakfasts or brunches are also a great way to meet up with friends and family who may work late during the week or have young families.

Breakfast suggestion

Every weekend and public holiday we lay out a breakfast bonanza featuring a choice of Eggs Benedict, omelettes, smoothies, pancakes and more. Timed to cater to the early breakfast hankerings or a leisurely brunch, breakfast is served from 8am until 11am.

The group dinner

With so many fixtures coming up on the annual calendar, now is the perfect time to invite your friends for a big Saturday dinner enjoyed with your favourite company. Whether it’s a large or small group, book a table, hit Darling Harbour and settle in for an evening of great conversation and equally fine fare.

Dinner suggestion

A banquet is always a great way to break down any social barriers while sampling all the tasty morsels available on our authentic Greek menu. You can opt for a Mezze banquet or sample the succulent delights of our full Greek feast.

Sunday lunch

After a well-earned sleep-in, Sunday is the day to bring family into the socialising fold. Why not schedule a catch-up well in advance of the Christmas rush, setting a festive tone for the season ahead? Whether it’s a table of four or a full family get-together, enjoy a leisurely lunch spent amongst those you love.

Sunday suggestion

Make it a Sunday seafood sensation with market fresh fish and a host of tasty delights like shrimp, calamari, and prawns. You can peruse our menu here for items that are sure to whet the appetite.

Afternoon recovery

And after a busy weekend wining, dining and catching up with everyone on your list, kick back in casual style overlooking the water on a dreamy Sunday afternoon. We’ll pamper you while you reminisce over the weekend that was, while plying you with shared plates, fantastic service, and authentic Mediterranean flavours.
