Eclectic, vibrant and energetic. We’re throwing a fiesta this August in one of the city centre’s favourite laneways. From live music with that infectious Latin beat, to tacos and tortilla pop-ups, this is one event you don’t want to miss out on as Imperial Lane & Everybody’s come alive this Restaurant Month.

Food is our muse, so gather the group, dust off your finest outfit, and join us for Restaurant Month’s biggest night out. It’s all under a shelter – leave those umbrellas at the door!

Start the evening right with a welcome drink on arrival – a choice of wine from top New Zealand wineries, or a sparkling Italian fruit beverage by Sanpellegrino. Then the aroma of deliciousness awaits – savour moreish delights from a line up from the laneways’ favourite eats, and joining these establishments are some innovative pop ups that have come onto the dining radar of keen foodies: Ragtag Tacos, with their duck fat tortillas with sublime taco fillings and Passa Passa with their beloved pizza fritta, one of the oldest form of pizzas with a fresh Passa Passa twist. Both pop ups have developed a strong following since their inception.

Live entertainment includes: 

  • DJ’s Bobby Brazuka, Corysco and Lucas Datt from Brazil 
  • Live set & dancing with The Cuban Groove and Samba Passion Brazilian Entertainment
  • Special performance by high energy alternative indie rock band The Rvmes

Food by Pop-ups: 

  • Passa Passa – Pizza fritta pork & fennel, pizza fritta margherita, choux pastry 
  • Ragtag Tacos – Beef skewer, charred chicken, mushroom & salsa verde

Fashion scouts will be out in force too looking for the best dressed, so come clad in your finest! Winners will receive a $100 voucher from one of the amazing food pop ups; and there are 4 chances to win throughout the evening.
