Taika Waititi enjoyed a night out with some of his local Australian friends on Friday night. 

The New Zealand film director headed off to a late dinner at Mimi’s in Sydney’s Coogee, a venue owned by billionaire publican Justin Hemmes, who was among Taika’s posse. 

Hemmes was joined by his model girlfriend Madeline Holtzangel, and Elena Ora, the sister of Taika’s wife, Rita, was likewise at the dinner. 

The group of A-listers enjoyed an animated chat throughout their meal, with Justin and Madeline cuddling up together. 

They partied late into the night, still enjoying their celebrations at their table at 1am.

Missing from the gathering was Taika’s wife Rita, with the British pop star skipping the outing.  

Taika had earlier that night been to the Sydney Film Festival, also solo, and made a dapper appearance at the State Theatre. 

He was as fashionable as ever as he attended the Red, White & Brass film premiere and later went out to dinner in the same outfit. 

The 47-year-old opted for a black cotton suit that fit close to his slender physique along with a white T-shirt.

Taika added a gold chain necklace and designer watch, as well as white sneakers for a casual touch.  

The film tells the true story of Tongan rugby superfans trick their way to the Rugby World Cup by forming a marching band.

Rita is currently in the city filming The Voice Australia, alongside fellow judges Jason Derulo, Guy Sebastian, and Jessica Mauboy.

The Hot Right Now singer, 32, arrived Down Under earlier this month with her husband.

The couple set temperatures soaring as they posed for a steamy photoshoot for this month’s Vogue Australia. 

They revealed in the interview the secret behind their successful marriage is making time for one another.

‘That’s the thing about marriage, about relationships, it’s about finding that person that you want to hang out [with] and making sure you actually do that,’ Taika said.

Rita added: ‘It’s about sacrificing certain things and making time for one another, especially when there’s two busy people in the relationship.

‘If you really care about someone you will figure it out.’
