Opening date….

It’s always a little scary to publish an opening date….a little like tempting fate….but here goes – APRIL 23.

The chippies are hard at work finishing the bathroom today. The wood panelling for all the benches is in and painted. Wallpaper starts tomorrow as painters finish and the concrete floors should be cut back and polished and painted by the weekend.

But we are most excited about the beautiful marble benches arriving on Friday along with the GB Espresso neon sign. The marble will be installed on the front bench for the lovely Hydra Synesso Coffee Machine and right along the middle bench where a glass cabinet will house food. Checking the measurements!


Colours and textures all starting to come together –


Looking forward to see little splashes of yellow popping up around the place including these little gems Andrew has sourced from Zuster – gorgeous wood turned coat hooks…


Ronnie Di Stasio tells us that if you need the best security Colin’s your man and we reckon Ronnie would know after more than 25 years on the Fitzroy Street strip. Colin and Ian have today installed 4 Big Daddy cameras. Apparently there were 14 burglaries in St Kilda between Fitzroy Street and Acland Street last Monday night so we are hoping this will put the crooks off! Pretty cool technology – remote CCTV that you can access at anytime from your phone or iPad.



Mmmmmm… April 23 – best be getting a move on then!!!
