Dive Into Temptation At Sydney’s Newest Speakeasy • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

‘Let your eyes adjust and take in the splendour of gold-lit booths, velvet furnishings, lustrous chandeliers and sparkling mirrors.’

So says the about section of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the new venture from the Speakeasy Group, opening its doors for the first time last Wednesday, February 19. (Featured image: @kisskissbangbangaus)

Slated as a late-night bar with a total capacity of 100, the KKBB venue has been designed to bring out just the right amount of decadence and debauchery in all of us.

Whereas days are likely to be intimate and cosy affairs allowing those seeking to slide up close to each other and whisper sweet nothings long into the evening, nights are intended to be fun with laughter, dancing, and a slightly sinful and hedonistic bent reminiscent of Sydney pre-lockout laws. No fights though, just sensual and sultry eyes across the bar as you sip drinks and snack on artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and canapés with friends and soon-to-be friends.


Liquid courage will be supplied in the form of an extensive champagne list as well as fun and theatrical cocktails concocted by former Mjølner Bar Manager, Alissa Gabriel. And don’t forget the liquid nitrogen on tap for the cocktails. These along with DJs and live performances (think back to the Peppermint Lounge of the early 2000s with vocalists, saxophonists, and bongo players) will help patrons lose track of time until the party ends at 2am.

The bar itself is styled in the form of a gun-barrel, and the venue has been described by Speakeasy Group director Sven Almenning as more Bond Girl than Bond Villain, so be prepared for the devious and/or delightful.
