Greek Revolution bicentenary celebrated with a bang at George’s Mediterranean Bar & Grill


Greek kefi was on full display at George’s Mediterranean Bar & Grill in Sydney on March 27, as the local Greek community gathered to celebrate the bicentenary of the Greek Revolution.

Attendees of the Greek Independence Dinner, which was organised by the owner of the restaurant, George Vardis, along with co-organisers Christina Tsatsoulis and Nikos Andriotakis, danced and sang until the early hours of the morning.

Throughout the night, they were also treated to professional dancing performances from St Dimitrios Dance Group, as well as music from Grigory Golas on the klarino, Michalis Platyrrahos on the laouto, Yiannis Polkas on the guitar and Chrystoforos Skenderidis playing the keyboard. The sound mix itself was organised by Bill Iliadis and Byron from Enmore Theatre.

The event was hailed a great success by all who visited the family restaurant on King Street Wharf, including those hundreds of passerby’s who stopped to record and share in the celebrations on the night!
