The much-loved Parea Greek Tavern in Kogarah will close its doors permanently this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and frequent lockdowns.
The closure announcement was made on Facebook on Monday, much to the disappointment of the Tavern’s loyal Greek customers.
“We didn’t realise how many people would be disappointed when we made the announcement,” Parea Greek Tavern owner, Nicholas Papas, tells The Greek Herald.
“We wanted to thank every one of you that dined, drank and celebrated many milestones with us while we were in business.
“We are beyond grateful for all of these memories and friendships forged.”
Despite the closure, Mr Papas says customers can still enjoy a Greek feast from Pare Express in Kogarah, and the business will also continue to offer offsite catering for special events and occasions.
