The first Entrecôte for Australia by restaurateur Jason M Jones was originally planned as a one year pop-up. As a result, Flack Studio were tasked to get creative with the existing features, paint and recycling the previous fit-out. The idea was to make a tongue-in-cheek play on a typical Parisian bistro, and acknowledge Entrecôte’s caretaker role of an iconic building, long-treasured by the South Yarra neighbourhood.

Occupying a High Victorian stand-alone terrace, the two-storey venue’s perfect bone structure was a canvas ready to be realised with a new, spontaneous and bold joie de vivre. While retaining a classic French sophistication, the studio has taken an unorthodox and playful approach to colour, handsomely evidenced by the charming clash of pink and red in the front room. Ornate period features and the building’s inherent stateliness contrast with contemporary indoor plant styling and striking, large-scale abstract artworks.
