The cocktails, mocktails and food at Sakesan Robatayaki Bar are so deliciously irresistible and the decor so spiffy I am obliged to promote them to you guys!
SAKESAN ROBATAYAKI BAR
Sakesan, the Ultra-hip ‘Robatayaki bar’ is renowned for its Gourmet Cocktails and Robatayaki meals. Unwind with your drink and nibbles in either the designer dining room or slip in to the chilled bar and lounge area.
The unique and vast cocktail menu uses sake and shochu as base spirits, blended with a range of Japanese ingredients like wasabi, yuzu, pickled ginger and plum, creating a range of refreshingly potent creations.
Sakesan’s signature cocktails are a definite must-try. The Wasabitini combines sake with fresh wasabi, nori and sweet pineapple and is served with yuzu sake as a starter and honey sake for dessert. The Rock Star Martini is served on a traditional wooden tray and starts with a fresh passion fruit, followed by a vanilla and passion fruit infused sake martini and is finished with a shot of homemade shiso sake.
The extensive cocktail selection also features various other popular beverages like The Sakesan (shochu shaken with Cointreau, cranberry and yuzu juice) and the Belle Japonaise (sake, vodka, lime, green apple, fresh kiwi and mint with a splash of sparkling wine). Delicious mocktails are also available, such as the Rising Sun which is a frozen concoction of orange juice, strawberry puree and pickled ginger.
Cocktail prices range from 65 rmb to 90 rmb for the Signature Cocktails. In addition, there are great summer deals on the innovative cocktails as well as the extensive selection of Japanese beers and global wines.
Happy Hour is available from 4pm to 9pm every Tuesday to Friday, offering 2-for-1 on all cocktails, Asahi beers and wines by the glass. On Tuesdays, patrons can enjoy a free Asahi 500ml draught with each purchase of signature Robata ribs. Thursdays are all about the Ladies with all night 2-for-1 cocktails for women at the bar. Sundays are also a treat with 2-for-1 Asahi beers in both the restaurant and bar area throughout the day.
Sakesan’s lounge and restaurant are attached by a narrow corridor but have separate entrances. The lounge is the ideal place for happy hour, pre or post-dinner drinks and socialising. It is also the perfect destination to enjoy Sakesan’s unique cocktails, Japanese spirits, craft beers and wines in a contemporary ambience defined by pop-art wall collages, snaking crimson sofas as well as a grey-brick bar. Delicious snacks from the robata grill are also available.
