It was a packed house and a festive crowd as The Australian Pub & BBQ celebrated its ninth anniversary with an “Aussie Barbie” party.
New and old fans of the Soi 11 pub joined invited guests and VIPs at the Sept. 25 affair that offered free-flow beer, wine and food from 6-9 p.m., with house band Seventh Sense taking the stage at 7 p.m. to put the party into overdrive.
The guest list spanned the world, with expats and tourists from Australia (naturally) and New Zealand toasting The Aussie’s birthday with those from Thailand, Ireland, England, the U.S., Scandinavia, Germany and more.
The Aussie Barbie theme lived up to its name, with the pub’s top two chefs manning the grill and serving up shrimp, chicken and pork. Meanwhile, The Aussie’s service staff circled the room with overflowing trays of food and beverages.
The merriment spilled onto the dance floor by 8pm and carried on well into the night. If this is how The Australian celebrates nine years, we can’t wait to see what it does for its 10th anniversary next year.
