Our calendar is also packed with functions and special events, so get involved and discover why we're not just any old bar.  

We bring the nostalgia and hospitality of Italia to you.

arrosticini bbq

Our Arrosticini BBQ is finally BACK! Starting at midday on Sunday 19 November, these juicy lamb skewers will be cooked in traditional Abruzzese style over hot coals using a 'fornacella' - an elongated, charcoal fired BBQ, purpose built for arrosticini. 

Plus we'll have a live DJ and drink specials to get the Sunday session started.


So get your crew together and we'll see you there ragazzi.
