What's On In Brisbane This Weekend | Gourmand & Gourmet

What's on this weekend

We’re promising more than just milk and cookies this weekend.

The office is empty, there’s no parks left at Westfield, and on top of every second store in Brisbane are Santas deflated from the heat  – yes, Christmas is less than a week away!

We suggest you take a break from the madness by hitting up these festive foodie events below.

Munich Brauhaus Midsommer

Skip the summer heat and hops to the beer filled Midsommer Festival at Munich Brauhaus this Saturday and Sunday! From 11am onwards on both days, guests can expect rosé sangria cocktail towers, plenty of pure Bavarian bier, flower crowns galore, and a DJ spinning the discs until late into the night. While entry is free, scoring a table will require you to book one beforehand here.

Darling & Co. Christmas Brunch 

Greener than your Christmas tree and sparkling brighter than your prettiest tinsel is Darling & Co’s Christmas Vegan Brunch! On Saturday from 11am-1pm, enjoy sparkling, vegan cocktails and wine paired with five delicious plant-based dishes for the small price of $60. Gather your darlings and book your last-minute tickets here.

Christmas at Trang’s Vietnamese

O Little Town of Brisbane – if you’re looking to celebrate Christmas this weekend with some little ones in tow, mum-and-pop Vietnamese restaurant Trang is the place to be. Along with karaoke, live entertainment and a visit from Santa himself, Trang will be serving a special Christmas banquet that even the pickiest of eaters will love! Give yourself the gift of quality feasting by calling (07) 3255 1610 to book your table.

Dolly and Mariah’s Christmas Drag Brunch

Mariah Carey has fully defrosted just in time to carol this Christmas alongside country legend Dolly Parton at Cloudland’s upcoming Christmas Drag Brunch! This Sunday from 11:30am-2:30pm, prepare to ho, ho, ho with your favourite drag queens (think Bebe Gunn and Karen From Finance) while indulging in a Italian-inspired feast paired with bottomless cocktails for just $69pp. Drag your mouse over here to book today.

Christmas Sunday Sesh at the Story Bridge Hotel

For a weekend that’s extra merry and bright, foodies need look no further than the Story Bridge Hotel this Sunday! If all you want for Christmas is food, booze, and some sweet sweet carols, head into this historic hotel between 5pm and 7pm to enjoy all of this… and a visit from Santa to boot.


Drink it up, Brisbane. After all, there’s no better time than the weekend before Christmas to go HAM.
