Tokyo Sing Song bar opening in Newtown

Tokyo Sing Song bar opening in Newtown

Newtown is in for a surprise on October 11 when a new Toyko inspired late-night concept bar opens in a King St basement. 

Tokyo Sing Song refuses to announce too many spoilers for the underground party scene but with a new curator each month, performances 4 nights a week and "no set times, no theme, no rules," it is safe to assume there will reason for taking dozens of bunny ear snapshots on the opening Friday night. If you’ve ever been simultaneously impressed and intimidated by a Japanese desert, the cocktail menu promises to recreate that feeling.

The “suitably insane” project space inspired by the Hello Kitty and neon aesthetics of Japanese subculture was created by Melbourne based artist and pyjama wearing lighting designer named Duckpond and Interior designer Michelle Leslie of Curious & the Specimen and it will no doubt add to the eccentric energy amongst the musicians, writers, artists and uni students in the heart of Sydney’s Inner West.

“Since it's a basement with a very late licence, we're not constrained by tiresome concepts like daylight, and we're looking to create an environment which will no doubt have more split personalities than Yuri Pavlov's favourite hamster,” Duckpond told Concrete Playground.

Oh and in case you forgot to do the laundry and therefore left the house with no underwear, the panty vending machine (Japan sells the most useful things in a vending machine including bread in a can, fresh flowers, fish bait, batteries and umbrellas) has got your back. 

Tokyo Sing Song is located in the basement of 145 King Street, Newtown.
