MoVida Solera is here

MoVida Solera is here

25 SEP 2014 Andalusia in Southern Spain bears the rich marks of millennia of culinary cultures left by traders, invaders, visitors and religious refugees.

From the hill top towns of Andalusia you look past Gibraltar, across the Mediterranean, to the Rif Mountains in Morocco.

From here came the Arabs and the Berbers in the 8th century who bought with them rice, spice, citrus and irrigation.


Next Door is our little Jerez bar next to MoVida. Every night, MoVida Next Door is pumping. Fish and shellfish are displayed on crushed ice and are cooked to order. In a few minutes a plate of sizzling prawns or calamari from the plancha is in front of you. Order a glass of chilled sherry and you could imagine you’re on the Atlantic cost of Andalusia. But you’re not, you’re in Melbourne, in a little bar looking out onto the icons of Melbourne: The MCG; Federation Square and the graffiti of Hosier Lane.

MoVida Next Door - 164 Flinders St (corner Hosier lane), Melbourne

Mon: Closed Tue - Thurs: 5pm - late Fri - Sat: 12pm - Midnight Sun: 1pm - 9pm
