What you might not know is that Olio Kensington Street also offers its own private alfresco dining space.

Olio Terrace is ideal for a post work aperitif snack or private hire for groups of 40.
Complete with sexy dark wooden furnishings, glistening copper cutlery and exposed brickwork, Eastside Kitchen + Bar embodies all that is adored about New York City’s meatpacking district. The Eastside team masterfully dish up a menu that strikes a fine balance between classically American and contemporary Japanese, giving you plenty to taste your way through. Think grilled asparagus with chive vinaigrette and burrata, grilled clarence river baby octopus with smoked almond romesco, potato chips, baked cheesecake and more.

While many are familiar with Chippendale’s Spice Alley, complete with festoon lighting and buzzing hawker-style diners, what you might not know about are the unique private dining rooms situated upstairs. Nestled amidst Kensington Street’s historic row of terraces, this upstairs space offers three unique private dining rooms. Each room comes with a rich personality, laced with Asian street art and quirky design features. The dining concept is simple.

Then, head back upstairs to your own private space and enjoy an extremely affordable, very delicious catch up with friends or colleagues. In partnership with Spice Alley’s vendors, charges per head start at $30. Private waitstaff can be arranged for an additional fee.
