As the stylish cocktail bar next-door to Surry Hill’s stylish Japanese restaurant, Toko, Tokonoma serves as both a trendy cocktail bar and an intimate dining space (with the same menu as Toko next door and tables that you can actually book). Slowly work your way through their list of expertly crafted Asian-inspired cocktails, where Japanese spirits such as sochu and sake feature heavily throughout the drinks menu along with luscious fresh exotic fruits. Curved ceilings, blond wooden panelling and minimalist furnishings is the decor. With loud music and a wall-to-wall fashionable crowd on weekends, its better to head to Tokonoma during the week if you’re looking for a quieter evening.
