The Spirit of Spain…….in the heart of Melbourne!
In 1975 Spanish dictator Franco died. After decades of his regime there suddenly erupted a spontaneous Spanish movement of art, film, music and fun, energetic youthful exuberance. This movement was called “MoVida”. MoVida restaurant embraces the spirit, the fun, the essence of the great bars of Spain. We cook the food of our home country using Spanish techniques, both traditional and modern, constantly acknowledging that we are in the heart of Melbourne.
In the past 10 years no one restaurant group has had a greater impact on the drinking and dining culture of Melbourne than movida. Since its inception in 2002, in a humble tavern on spencer street, to its now iconic location on Hosier Lane, MoVida has promoted a culture of casual sophistication; high quality produce offered with generosity, sophistication, simplicity and world class wines and beers provided in an environment that promotes drinking as a natural extension of the provision of food rather than drinking for drinking’s sake.
In the past several years the Movida Group has gone on to break new ground, opening Australia’s first genuine tapas bar, Movida Next Door (Winner, Don Levy Fitzpatrick Award, 2009), MoVida Aqui and MoVida Terraza. While each of these new businesses shares the soul of MoVida, they are in their own way unique, offering fresh new architectural direction (MoVida Next Door, winner, small space architecture awards 2010, MoVida Aqui, nominated, Architecture Awards 2010), and ever evolving menus to challenge and delight our customers.
