Southern Comfort will bring the music, food and culture of New Orleans to Brisbane with its Southern Carnival pop-up.

Following successful pop-ups in Sydney and Melbourne, Southern Comfort will bring the Southern Carnival event to Brisbane for the first time.

Popping up at Brooklyn Standard in the CBD, you’ll be able to enjoy authentic Nola favourites like buttermilk fried chicken; po’ boys with fried oysters, bacon, lettuce and tomato on a fresh baguette; and gumbo with chicken, prawn, andouille sausage and corn in a thick Creole stew.

You’ll also be able to indulge in Southern Carnival’s signature cocktails, including Southern Comfort Hurricane, Slow Comfortable Screw and the Lazy Boy, which features Southern Comfort, Buffalo Trace, Aperol, lemon and apple juice served in a Collins glass and garnished with an apple fan.

Southern Carnival will also bring a number of live musicians to Brooklyn Standard’s spacious stage, including four-piece jazz funk outfit Moneypenny and eclectic rockabilly, blues, country, funk and metal band West Texas Crude (Thursday 30 March); blues guitarist Mojo Webb and party starters Millennium Band (Friday 31 March); and country rockers The Demon Drink with funk and soul band Fifth Avenue (Saturday 1 April).
