Inspired by the vibrant Tel Aviv bar scene, amidst a warm setting rich in eclectic character, with Middle Eastern edge meets a modern-colonial vibe.

ZA ZA TA features a curated collection of colonial-inspired rums and bespoke cocktails mixed, muddled and infused with spices traded at every Middle Eastern market place, accompanied by Queensland’s seasonal citrus and indigenous botanicals. Influenced by the flavours and aromas of ancient Arabian spice routes, settle in and enjoy Old World rums, Mediterranean style gin and tonics, and an ever-changing wine and cocktail list.

The wine offering has been curated with energetic artisanal wines at the forefront; a collection of Tel Aviv inspired drops that are sophisticated in their own way but don’t take themselves too seriously. A global melting pot of culture, Tel Aviv is where cultures collide and wine flows from every provenance.

Australian producers who embody the spirited nature of Tel Aviv and the Mediterranean will also be celebrated, and as Mother Earth is important to us here at ZA ZA TA, the entire list rejoices in organic, plant-based and biodynamic principles.
