Olio Kensington Street

Exclusive Hire

Central (0.5 km)140

Olio Kensington Street is the perfect space for your next event.

Located on the second floor of the historic Old Rum Store, the space designed by international award-winning architects LAVA (Masdar, Martian Embassy), features a contemporary indoor dining-room with charming, exposed brick and adorning loft-style windows that flood the venue with natural light. A tiled ‘passeggiata’ (promenade) curves through the restaurant and connects the kitchen, bar, dining and rooftop areas. The entire venue can accommodate up to 140 guests.

Just metres away, step out onto The Terrace by Olio, a unique alfresco dining space that will transport you to the Mediterranean. The Terrace is also available for hire if you prefer a smaller venue.

At the heart of Olio is Sicilian-born, award-winning chef Lino Sauro who comes from a long lineage of self-sufficient Sicilian farmers. Lino grew up with home cooked meals that were created with the quality produce grown on his family property. This translates into Sauro’s menu with dishes that focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients and reflect a strong connection to his Sicilian roots.

Sauro and his team open the doors to Olio as they would their family home and turn on the Sicilian charm, ensuring an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.

All events deserve a great setting whether you are hosting a corporate lunch or dinner, wedding, engagement party, end of year celebration, birthday, a family gathering or a canapé cocktail celebration. While Olio Kensington Street is full of character and charm, the venue is simple enough for you to transform to suit your next bespoke event.
