Brisbane has welcomed a new dining and event destination, with the launch of Za Za Ta at Ovolo The Valley.
Located in Fortitude Valley, the signature restaurant blends Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food and drinks, with a striking restaurant design by Luchetti Krelle.
Za Za Ta not only serves up impressive Middle Eastern feasts to guests and visitors, it also offers various event spaces for corporate groups.
Group food and beverage director Vincent Lombino said the venue caters for groups of up to 120 guests.
“Za Za Ta is such a unique venue, it’s designed as a grand sprawling house with details from traditional Queenslander architecture,” he said.
“Guests are welcome to roam through Victorian inspired interiors, where every room has their own charm and personality.”
The spaces include The Parlour, a nostalgic bar referencing the 1940s, luxe lounge space The Library and dedicated function space The Grand Hall.
“The Grand Hall has Victorian-inspired wall panelling and a monochromatic, tropical mural for every configuration, with the equally stylish Games Room adjoining via an operable wall,” said Lombino.
Art and design play a vital role in bringing Za Za Ta to life, with every inch of the restaurant and event venue carefully considered.
Among the features of the space are artworks by British-based multidisciplinary artist, Kayleigh Heydon, pottery and plates by Sydney-based potter Samantha Robinson, and staff uniforms designed by Claudia Saurine and Natasha Gan.
The heart of Za Za Ta is The Conservatory, a casual yet refined dining space inspired by the iconic conservatories of the Victorian era.
“We’re serving up soulful dishes at Za Za Ta, celebrating the exotic with a blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine,” said Lombino.
“Drinks are no different, because we’re pouring plantation rum and artisanal cocktails, inspired by the vibrant Tel Aviv bar scene and the famed Jaffa Marketplace.”
