Entering the restaurant you are greeted by the large sculptural wall installation by Callaghan. The installation reflects a flock of birds in flight, making a playful reference to the restaurants name, while their mechanical appearance references the history of the building; which was used as a mechanical workshop in the 1920's.

The framed prints and vinyl installations by Aranda, which decorate other areas of the property (see below), also connect with the property's historical use; the artworks depicting scenes from 1920's car races.
