We are thrilled to introduce Tom Gorringe as the new executive chef of Aria. Tom comes to us with a wealth of experience, having recently held the role of head chef at hatted restaurant, The Gantry. Tom will work closely with Matt Moran to develop a menu that's driven by the seasons and champions their shared philosophy of using local produce and supporting Australian suppliers.

wine bar

introducing empirical spirits

New to our drinks list, we are pleased to feature unique spirits from Copenhagen based distillery, Empirical Spirits. Forged with barley koji and Belgian Saison yeast in a special vacuum at a very low temperature, these special spirits are best served neat on the rocks or with our recommended serving suggestions.
