GIA has become Jakarta’s best Italian restaurant since its opening in 2014 with awards such as “Best Restaurant Design of The Year” from Asia Pacific Design Award and “Best Hospitality Interior of The Year” from Belle Coco Republic Interior Design Awards. GIA’s location at the iconic Sampoerna Strategic Square and delicious food offerings makes it the preferred destination for those wanting to fill their craving for authentic Italian cuisine as well as a place for formal meetings, corporate functions and a spot to celebrate a special day.
As an internationally acclaimed brand, GIA continues its feat by opening GIA at Dubai. Located in the prestigious Fashion Avenue of Dubai Mall, GIA Dubai has opened for public since March 2018. Since its opening in Dubai, GIA Dubai has been critically acclaimed just like its Indonesian sister, winning “Best Restaurant” at Taste of Dubai 2019. ISMAYA Group also launched Osteria GIA in Pacific Place this year as GIA’s more rustic sister.
This year, to celebrate their past accomplishments and for their 5th anniversary, GIA taps into the exhilarating lifestyle of the 80’s disco era, with heavy inspiration from the classic drama Saturday Night Fever. With the theme “NostalGIA Back to the 80’s Disco Era,” the entirety of the space was decorated to emulate 80’s disco vibes.
On Friday the 6th of December, GIA invited guests to put on their dancing shoes, slip on their most glamorous dress and dance the night away. VIPs started the celebration early, with an exclusive session from 6pm until 9pm complete with free-flow Absolut Elyx cocktails and canapes. For this special occasion, the Indonesian artist Nindy Ayunda was performed with a supporting performance by Marsheilla Andries. Dress to impress, as at the end of the night the best dressed will win a bottle of Absolut Elyx!
