Blackhearts & Sparrows is coming to the ELLA development!
The rumours are true: Blackhearts & Sparrows is coming to Melbourne CBD!
As part of the ELLA development, we’re set to open the doors to our brand new store late July, and we couldn’t be more excited. Taking cues from the bustling train stations that are the epicentre of high-end food and culture around the world, ELLA is a project by the GPT group with an ambitious set of goals. As Stuart MacLeod, ELLA’s Development Manager outlines, “We want the space to be an intimate place for residents and visitors to meet and enjoy Melbourne life away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD streets, while still being surrounded by the attributes that make this city so fantastic”.
There’s a lot to get around at ELLA, with food offerings from Colours Bowls, Sam Sam, Son in Law, and Chilli Everest, alongside Worksmith’s impressive second co-working space up and running, while Byrdi (helmed by international cocktail superstar Luke Whearty) and Reverie café set to open in the coming month. The precinct has also been acoustically treated so that music has pride of place, with a great program of live musicians, and a curated soundtrack featuring music by local Melbourne artists.
Our store is being designed by the lovely people at Champ Co with fit out by the folks at Westmark Developments – it’s been such a pleasure watching it take shape, and we’re definitely at the pointy end of it now!
For us, one of the most important element of any of our stores is that of community. In each neighbourhood, we connect with the people and other businesses in the area. In the city it will be no different, and we’ll be bringing our usual mix of delicious and approachable offerings across beer, wine, and spirits – championing the small and unique, the weird and the wonderful, and the downright delicious.
We can’t wait to see you in store and find just the right bottle for you.
