Shinbashi Yakiniku – Sake Bar

Address: 294 Lygon St, Carlton

After our completion of the original Shinbashi Restaurant, we were delighted to partner with Pierce Widera on a new extension in the upstairs Sake Bar.

The design continues the concept created originally to express a modern take on traditional Japanese details. The dark, moody addition creates an ambience for an intimate sake bar and function venue. Upon entering the space, the customer is greeted by a full-height storage wall with movable timber screens, stained in a dark rich colour. The sake bottles are only minimally illuminated to not distract from the overall ambience. However, the centrepiece is the illuminated grid table, a linear LED pendant hovers above and sets the atmosphere for the room.

There is an illuminated sake shelving unit showcasing the most premium and rarest Japanese sake behind the table, and concealing a storage room with back of house facilities. A dark curtain at the back wall is adding softness to the dark and moody interior. Function Fitouts have contributed by delivering a quality shopfitting build to the same high-quality standards as offered by design practice, Pierce Widera in all their projects.
