REVOLUTIONISING THE WORLD WITH CREATIVE FLAIR
Echoing the resurgence of hotel dining seen in New York and London, Salon de Co represents a fusion of modern hospitality and home-style warmth and plays on the idea of mixing a home with an artistic hospitality venue. Salon de Co draws inspiration from Art Deco style, the Années folles (crazy years), and the idea of revolutionising the world with creative flair.

Indulge in delectable dishes and beverages by renowned chef Anthony Hales amidst the charm of Georgian-Art Deco style décor.
Utilising his favourite flavours, ingredients and techniques, Anthony brings together a fun and modern offering with a homely twist. Salon de Co’s menu utilises flavours, ingredients and technique from Australia and abroad (with notable Asian influence) and brings them together in a simple way. Dishes are designed to share, using fresh and seasonal produce, whilst working directly with local farmers, artisans and producers.
The Salon de Co bar is a lively space with an eclectic and warm neighbourhood vibe. The bar features theinterest-piquing ‘Cabinet of Curiosity’, a display cabinet parading a seemingly unsystematic assortment of trinkets and artefacts. Savour our signature cocktails, beverages and share plates of charcuterie with friends amidst the charm of Georgian-Art Deco style Décor.
STYLESalon de Co’s design interiors include wooden parquetry flooring, brass archways and heritage wall paneling featuring vibrant experimental and aspirational artwork. The eclectic styling has numerous ornaments which tie into the medical history of the building and bring to life Ovolo’s Rock n roll attitude.
Anthony Hales leads the kitchen team at Salon de Co, a born-and-bred Australian with experience from all across the globe. Hales apprenticed and worked in a number of kitchens while still in school, including Alchemy and Dolci Sapori before heading to the central Japan to refine his skills. He then followed up in Brisbane with stints at Spicers Peak, Medusa Dining, Esquire and Tartufo. Anthony has run several restaurants including Thomson’s Reserve and Deer Duck Bistro where he achieved several accolades and received his first chef’s hat.
Once again venturing to Asia, he journeyed to Korea to learn about its traditional cuisine, before taking a three-month culinary trip around Australia to understand the country’s gastronomic culture. His final return to Brisbane saw him take on his current Salon de Co role, where he’s already won numerous accolades, including finalist in Appetite of Excellence, best fine dining restaurant 2017 from Restaurant and Caterers, and Chef of the Month from Export Fresh.
Salon de Co is a restaurant and bar with freedom of expression and artistic passion at its heart. The Roaring ‘20s through to the Crazy ‘40s serve as the inspiration for the venue’s concept, drawing from the period’s ardent mix of social, artistic and hospitality cultures. Think Gertrude Stein’s Paris salon, where Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Picasso and Matisse would comfortably rub shoulders while sharing trailblazing ideas and indulging in gourmet food & wine.
