The restaurant is a project of the love and passion from my Hellenic roots. It is a project that I can claim proudly to be 100% Greek idea, design, decoration and materials. With this in mind I have created a space made in Greece.

‘The restaurant is a project of the love and passion from my Hellenic roots. It is a project that I can claim proudly to be 100% Greek idea, design, decoration and materials. With this in mind I have created a space made in Greece. Welcome to 1821’.

Jim Kospetas, Founder of 1821, Martin Place

‘Throughout history, Hellenes have shared their table with family and friends as a show of hospitality and generosity. I have designed this menu with inspiration from my experiences and philosophy taught through Greek ages. The Odyssey may have begun in Greece, but it has now found its home, here in 1821’.

David Tsirekas, Executive Chef

Below 1821 you will find our bunker bar Odessa. The space is perfect for everything from after work drinks and birthdays to cocktail parties and private dining.


Guests enter the venue through a nondescript black door from an alley behind the venue. The bar is at the bottom of a narrow, dimly lit staircase. Once inside, Bar Odessa promises luxury fit with a delectable food menu and extensive drinks menu.
