Move over brunch, Social Sundays are where it’s at

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fitness fanatic, a savvy market shopper or a Saturday night club hopper, everyone agrees that a Sunday well spent brings a week of content. But anyone that has ever planned an afternoon picnic would know that a chilled Sunday vibe is hard to come across in Brisbane, especially when your perfect outdoor feast is usually being invaded by bugs, ibises or just the sweltering summer heat. Well say goodbye to binge watching Netflix all weekend and say hello to Social Sundays at Riverbar & Kitchen. Every Sunday from 3pm, our favourite riverside dining and drinking destination plays host to pop-up bars, friendly games of Giant Connect 4 and Giant Jenga and their ever delicious seasonal menu. Paired with unmatched views of the Story Bridge and riverside vibes, it all makes for a Sunday session that a marathon of Orange is the New Black could never match. sunday session brisbane 2 Each week, you’ll find a different pop-up bar waiting for you to come and sample their wares, whether it’s a unique spirit, craft brew or boutique wine. Not only will you be able to sip your way through the week’s tipple, with the lineup so far having covered Moët & Chandon Rosé Imperial and Bombay Sapphire, but you’ll be able to chat to the bartenders about everything from what makes the best margarita, to how to identify the flavour notes in your new favourite craft beer. Once you’ve worked up an appetite and maybe even ‘sampled’ a few tipples from the cocktail list, you can make the most of the menu, with scrumptious eats like crispy prawn tacos, pizzas and soft shell crab burgers. Because no Sunday session is complete without a good feed! So cancel your date with the couch next weekend, gather your crew and treat yourself to a Social Sunday at Riverbar & Kitchen where the cocktails are quenching, the board games are colossal and the vibes are sublime.
