Darlinghurst is slowly but surely getting its groove back with The Strand’s new rooftop bar and a funky new augmented reality darts bar. Giving them company is Kissuu — a new Japanese restaurant which is bringing disco vibes to Oxford Street. The multi-level venue is combining a few things we know and love — Japanese cuisine, quirky cocktails and endless dance parties. Guaranteeing a good time out, the restaurant will feature a rotation of local DJs, flavourful Japanese bites and all the good vibes.
The brainchild of former Nobu chef Adam Burke and music curator and DJ, Richy Penny, the venue is open for dinner and dancing six nights of the week. This trendy new spot promises to be a stellar new addition to Sydney’s late-night party and dining scene.
“We miss Sydney’s glory days and we’re so ready to bring that energy back and provide our guests with the complete package under one roof,” Richy Penny says.
On one level visitors will find a dimly lit 40-seat restaurant featuring a fun and creative menu including stuffed chicken wings with prawn and wasabi kimchi, shitake and tofu gyozas and sugar loaf cabbage with truffle wafu and parmesan. Other menu highlights include beef tartare with muntries and Davidson plum and jap crisps, ‘Kingfish new style with mandarin ponzu and charred plum, crisp tacos filled with tuna with wasabi oil and eggplant with miso and walnut.
Once you’ve had a taste of the excellent menu, you can grab a cocktail and hit the red neon-lit dance floor on the upper level. With vibrant orange lounges, a mirrored wall and roof and DJs spinning edits of Diana Ross, Gibson Brothers and Candi Station, it’s the perfect way to wrap up your evening.
