The Calile Hotel development on James Street is set to add a diverse mix of restaurants and bars to the popular precinct both within the hotel and adjoining the Ada Lane development.

Simon Gloftis of Hellenika is planning on calling The Calile Hotel home, with Hellenika due to open with The Calile Hotel launch in September 2018. Hellenika will take up permanent residence on the pool deck level of The Calile with 600 square meters of internal and external dining fronting James Street and encompassing a leafy patio and cabana dining after hours. “I had been looking in Brisbane for about four to five years for the perfect site,” said Simon. “Once I saw a pic of The Calile that was that, Hellenika just looked like it needed to be in that building. I can’t wait for my guests to have lunch overlooking the beautiful pool desk.”

Works have also commenced on Ada Lane, the new laneway development bounding The Calile Hotel and Pottery Barn. Set to become the food and beverage micro-precinct within the wider James Street area, Ada Lane will feature five new street level tenancies dedicated to eateries and bars.

Owner developer of The Calile Hotel and Director of Calile Malouf Investments Michael Malouf says Ada Lane will complete the architectural retail centre as it connects the West Elm building with The Calile Hotel. “Designed by Richards and Spence architects, the new Ada Lane tenancies will be finished in white brick, structural concrete and natural stone, complementing the adjacent hotel,” Michael said.

In homage to Ada’s sense of hospitality and adventure, Ada Lane will also become part of Brisbane’s newest dining precinct for the city. With the convenience of  parking spaces in the adjoining Calile development, James Street will draw in Brisbane foodies and shoppers as a one stop destination for dining and retail.
