Tipo 00

If Italian is your favourite cuisine, then you’ve come to the right place! This restaurant is next level when it comes to their pasta and pizza!

If you love your pasta, Tipo 00 is the place to be. Parking can be limited, so make sure you organise your Melbourne luxury hire car from Get Chauffeured.

Bomba Tapas Bar and Rooftop

Do you have a birthday coming up or just planning a night out with friends? Bomba Tapas Bar and Rooftop is the place to be. Known for its delicious paella and cocktails, this restaurant is the perfect location for a good time. This funky Spanish joint in combination with one of our Stretched Chrysler Limousines makes for a great evening. Rock up to Bomba’s in style!

Top off your night in one of Stretch Hummer Limousines – the perfect car for a birthday, celebration, engagement or night with your friends in the city. Alternatively, our Mercedes Viano and people movers make it easy to transport all your friends in one movement to the restaurant.
