Australia Day ‘s tradition is always meeting in the sunshine with friends and family and enjoy a good BBQ.
This year let’s celebrate this long weekend a little differently by meeting on the rooftop at Johnny’s Green Room as it is hosting its first ever “Italian BBQ” on Sunday 27thJanuary, with shrimp on the Barbie (Italian style), Johnny’s classic drinks on tap and local DJs playing from midday til late.
Forget the usual suspects you would find at an Aussie BBQ, Johnny’s will be swapping out the burnt sausages and onion for arrosticini and seafood on the grill.
Modern-Italian bar snacks will also be on offer, including pork & veal polpetti, arancini and caprese salad. Or, enjoy a selection of antipasto: cured meats with mozzarella, bread with pickles & cheese.
Local and imported beer will be flowing on tap, as well as spritzes, highballs and a wide range of wines. Johnny’s cocktails will also be at the ready; including the crowd favourite Johnny’s Smash – a combination of gin, sparkling yuzu, ginger & mint.
Woody McDee (former 3RRR music director/The Cave 3RRR/Meredith Booker) and friends will be taking care of the music from lunch right into the night.
With breath-taking city views, good food, drinks and endless tunes – there will be no better place to celebrate the well-deserved long weekend than at Johnny’s.
Johnny’s Italian BBQ will be held on Sunday 27 January from noon until late. No booking required.
Johnny’s Green Room (rooftop bar at King & Godfree) – 293-297 Lygon St, Carlton VIC 3053
