Ape Hour.png

Join us for ‘Ape Hour’ 3pm-5pm, Friday to Sunday in Paddington. 

Start the weekend in style with our Apertivo Club Sessions at Vino e Cucina. 

To help you celebrate the end of the week, enjoy our famous Aperol Spritz for only $8 and take advantage of $6 Prosecco, Italian wine and beer. 

Also on offer is our special ‘cicchetti’ menu. What is cicchetti? Cicchetti are small snacks or side dishes, often served at traditional bàcari (bars) in Venice. We’re bringing a slice of the Venetian lifestyle to Paddington with our cicchetti menu which features all your favourites; calamari fritti, zucchini flower, crispy polenta chips, bruschetta and more. See the full cicchetti menu below (other menu items are also available at this time).

Bring that someone special or invite a group of friends to make the most of your afternoon. Our courtyard is the perfect spot to unwind, or grab the gang and head inside for a more cosy gathering.
