Four Storey ‘Stella’ Restaurant & Bar Opens In South Yarra

Sitting on the corner of Chapel and Grosvenor Streets, across four sophisticated levels exuding understated elegance, Stella is a multi-storey hospitality establishment with an Italian flourish serving charm and tradition alongside a 200-strong, Italian-leaning wine list, Mediterranean-inspired cocktails and stellar rooftop vistas.

From the basement to the rooftop, each level has been considered and designed to deliver a different hospitality experience. An underground private dining room with heritage blue stone walls, a green marble table and a back-lit wall of Italian reserves hosts up to eight guests, while the ground floor presents as the main dining room and kitchen seating up to 60. Centred around the Golden Onyx sculptural Marana Forni pizza oven, plush green banquettes and charcoal oak, osteria-style seating create a sophisticated, trattoria vibe.

Venue Manager Paul Mitchell (Grossi Florentino, Wills Domain Winery Margaret River, 400 Gradi) brings his signature hospitality ethos and service to the table, while Sommelier Myron Kloppers (Omnia, Ike Jime), has executed a cross-section of Italy’s finest drops and local Australian varietals.

Level one sets the scene for social drinks and bites for up to 50 guests. With azure velvet banquette-lined walls, marble fireplace, charcoal oak furniture and herringbone flooring, the space is complemented by copper detailing that glows under the canopy light installation, hand-crafted with 500 suspended bottles. The sunlit rooftop reveals a vertical garden, elegant bianco alfresco settings, Golden Onyx bar and an all-season retractable roof for up to 60 guests to enjoy sunset cocktails and plates of Antipasto.
