We're always buzzing with something going on.  Pop in on an intimate date, or get loose with a bunch of your nearest and dearest.  There are DJs on the decks Friday and Saturday nights to get you swooning and grooving.

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.

No bookings required. Come and enjoy the good life with food, wine and the best Italian music. What’s Sunday for if not a celebration, Italian style!
