Heads up, guys. Johnston Street’s much-loved Spanish Club, Hogar Español, are hosting their huge Spanish Block Party this weekend. And you can bet your bottom dollar that you’re invited.
This year, Hogar Español will be demolishing their old and ageing Spanish clubrooms in order to make way for a brand new club facility. Best part? It’ll feature its very own Spanish restaurant.
To celebrate the dawn of this new and exciting era, the club (along with their developer Gurnertm) are hosting a huge Spanish Block Fiesta. All proceeds will go towards funding new equipment and supplies for the club’s members base (which btw, is run completely by a voluntary committee). So come down, amigo.
You can expect a day filled with Spanish fun. From free sangria (yes, FREE sangria) and Spanish street food, to dancing lessons and fortune telling. Oh, and how could we forget: the party will also feature a demolition room with paint-filled super soakers for you to go absolutely nuts in.
Tap(as) and go, people.
Where: 16 June from 12pm onwards
When: Hogar Español, 59 Johnston St, Fitzroy
