Get ready to roar into the Year of the Dragon with Treasury Brisbane’s LNY line-up

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, Treasury Brisbane is welcoming the Year of the Dragon with a line-up of unmissable experiences all throughout the month of February. The precinct is set to host a stacked program of festivities from fabulous food to cultural performances. Here’s what’s not to miss…

Feast with Fat Noodle at its bountiful banquet of pan-Asian dishes: In honour of the year of the dragon, Fat Noodle is hosting a banquet for two – all month long. On the menu, you’ll find Fat Noodle delicacies like refreshing green-mango salad with peanuts, taste-bud-tingling chicken fried rice, sumptuous scallop dumplings and succulent caramelised pork belly which you can enjoy with two glasses of sparkling or vino. Finish the evening with the eatery’s dessert showstopper – the Vietnamese coffee tiramisu. For $88 for two people, there’s only one question left, who’s the lucky friend getting an invite to share this foodie fare. Book your banquet here. 

Devour dumplings and festive dishes at this underground restaurant: Hidden under Treasury Brisbane, find the discreet dumpling outpost Mei Wei at the top of Queen Street Mall. With a menu inspired by the dishes found at Cantonese street stalls, Mei Wei is home to delicious dim sum and flavour sensations hot from the wok. This Lunar New Year, Mei Wei is thanking Treasury Brisbane members with an exclusive  plate featuring a whole flash-fried barramundi. Served with pork belly, tofu and chilli-shallot oil, the barramundi boasts a golden-crisp exterior and perfectly flaky fillet for $19.90. 

Toast to power and prosperity with these Lunar New Year-inspired cocktails: Treasury Brisbane’s numerous bars will be shaking new cocktail medleys inspired by the Year of the Dragon throughout February. You can sample these seasonal drinks at Fat NoodleMei Wei and Ryan’s On The Park, with each venue adding its own dragon roar to the tipples.  Toast to power and prosperity in the Lunar New Year with a round of these exciting new drinks before the month’s end. 

Roar with delight at the performance of roving entertainers: No Lunar New Year is complete without the dance of the lion. Enliven your evening by taking in the vibrant costume and music of this Chinese tradition as the lion weaves through the crowd of Treasury Brisbane. A traditional symbol of good luck and fortune, the roaming lion always guarantees an auspicious evening and a happy new lunar year. Catch it roaming Treasury Brisbane from 7:30 pm on February 9-12 and February 24. Whilst in the precinct, you’ll also be able to cast your red-ribboned wish on the Wishing Tree and even receive a red packet when dining as well.
