Sydney Greek restaurant forced to close over bikie ‘retribution’ fears

By 3 months ago

A Greek Potts Point restaurant and bar was ordered to close its doors to the weekend’s trade after police received information that members of a bikie gang were planning to rock up the venue to commit an act of retribution wrote the Daily Telegraph.

Eros (venue above) is a popular Greek restaurant and bar located in Sydney's eastern suburbs 

The information on Friday raised concerns for the well being of diners at the swanky Greek restaurant. 

The ILGA said it had obtained 'police information of a serious nature' and 'determined that closure of the premises is necessary to prevent or reduce a significant threat or risk to the public interest'.

The closure order was enforced from 7.30pm on Friday and lifted 7.30am on Monday. 

Eros has reportedly had other recent compliance issues including a violent fight in February that saw male patrons use glass bottles as weapons.

Several people were injured in the fight but it was not reported to authorities by the restaurant. Instead a witness notified police.  

The news follows complaints from regular diners that the restaurant has disappeared off social media.

A quick check on Google Maps, Eros & Kings Cross Pavillion, also owned by the same people, looks to have suddenly closed, as well as the Facebook and social media pages are not available.

A search on Twitter brought up the following, which shows a hen's night being cancelled last minute.

One woman posted on several community pages asking if Eros had closed after she was unable to call its booking number last week.

'Does anyone here live in Potts point and know if Eros has been closed down?,' she wrote.

'Their phone has been disconnected and their Instagram and Facebook deleted. As well as the owners page.'
