It’s finally here! Indigo Oscar—the vibing new Latin American-inspired pop-up inside Cottesloe’s iconic beachfront teahouse—will officially open its doors next Thursday 25 November. 

Named after the phonetic initials for the Indian Ocean, Indigo Oscar has taken over Indiana’s huge restaurant space and will run throughout summer before the building undergoes its next transformation. And let me tell you, for a pop-up, it’s been given one helluva makeover. The temporary dining space is looking fresh as hell, with vibrant tropical vibes that team perfectly with those ridiculous views over Cottesloe beach.

With a menu packed with loads of good drinks and summer-ready bites inspired by the flavours of Central and Southern America, it’ll be the perfect spot to set up for a cruisy long lunch or a few balmy evening nibbles and drinks.

You can thank Z1Z Culinary Manager Tom Haynes (formerly at Sydney’s Chef Hat-awarded Barangaroo House) and Head Chef Tom Harper (formerly at Besk in West Leedy) for that phenomenal food menu, which promises dishes like Spencer Gulf kingfish ceviche with melon, cucumber and green chilli, as well as pineapple-glazed pork belly skewers with salsa hogao and a whole roasted chipotle cauliflower. They’ve also roped in the legends at Gusto Gelato to create two unique gelato flavours to cap your night off, including a sangria sorbet with coconut and pisco. Drool.

Of course, the bar will have all bases covered too, with a mix of boutique wines, tropical-inspired cocktails (just think pina coladas, sangria and pisco-centric creations) and local and international beers that are screaming out for a seaside session. There’s even a whole selection of elevated magnums curated by sommelier Sofia Giros if you’re feeling extra. And really, who isn't around this time of year?

We can already tell we’re going to be pretty sad to see this pop-up go, so we suggest you head to the website to book a table or two stat.
