Santa Monica Brisbane, an Italian-American pizza, burger and cocktail bar is set to bring a new street style vibe to the CBD dining scene (have amazzzzing imagery if required!).

Boasting a bespoke fit out and custom-created artwork, Santa Monica Brisbane celebrates the climate in true supercool sidewalk style.

And, like it’s namesake, which is home to Dogtown skateboard culture, Ocean’s Eleven, that iconic beachfront and pier and a wicked reputation for effortless dining, Santa Monica Brisbane features a menu that is flavour-filled, uncomplicated and bang on trend.

Along with Santa Monica Pizza Burger Bar there is also Santa Monica Espresso Street side to service the busy morning coffee rush and an express burger menu for takeaway.

And who is behind the pans at Santa Monica Brisbane? Meet German brothers Erkan and Hakan Karakol, who together bring a shared pool of Michelin starred experience, university qualifications in business and round-the-world travel to create a next-level eats and drinks dogma, Californian-style, to Santa Monica Brisbane (biography available on request).

With its signature Pizza Oven at the heart of the kitchen, pizzas are an absolute specialty – and rather than a lineup of licorice all-sorts, there are six celebrated and authentic types.

There’s the Santa Monica Seafood Pizza ($26) with mozzarella, prawns, smoked salmon, capers, red onion, crème fresh & dill, or dig in to the BBQ Meatlovers ($24) packed with pulled pork, bacon, pork sausage, napolitana sauce, mozzarella and topped with BBQ sauce.

Anytime desserts – over coffee, as a late night taster or for that sweet full stop a dining experience – come as three types – the Warm Chocolate Brownie, Cannoli Di Ricotta and the classic Santa Monica Bana Split.

Santa Monica Brisbane will open on Wednesday the 17th with breakfast through all day dining to late night dinners, shared plates and cocktail tasters.
