We were head over heels when Ashleigh Keily opened up Arc + Family Pots—Fortitude Valley’s gorgeous homewares and custom planter store on James Street (our wallets not so much, but tbh we’re not complaining)—and with rumblings of a new project in the works since December last year, we’re pleased as punch that el’ Rosa will be opening its doors next month!
Taking over the vacant outdoor space next door to Arc + Family, el’ Rosa is set to be the lush courtyard-come-café space of your Instagramming dreams. We’re talking head-to-toe pastel pink (walls, floor, doors—the works!), and that’s before we get to the plants! Taking some serious inspo from Morocco, the patio will be full to the brim with super-size cacti and greenery, transforming the space into a tropical paradise.
The space itself will have two main purposes; to host events—from movie nights, workshops and private parties—and serve as a café.
el’ Rosa is tipped for opening mid-April, and we can’t wait!
