Review of Kid Kyoto
Dr Sam Prince (INDU, Mejico, Zambrero) brings us his newest venture, Kid Kyoto. Kid Kyoto is a take on a Japanese izakaya bar, moonlighting as a grungy rock’n’roll den.
They’ve made the most of the souring ceilings and kept with an industrial vibe, with concrete walls and floors and pops of their signature teal colour palette brighten the space. Neon signs, warm woods and leather seating complete the transformation. There’s an open kitchen and an impressive bar at the back, and 80’s and 90’s rock tunes fill the air.
In keeping with their theme, the menus at Kid Kyoto are presented in leather album covers and the menu is divided into Intro, Raw and Unplugged, Main Stage, B-Sides and Encore. They sure take their theming seriously here! The menu is best shared and works particularly well for groups.
In terms of the drinks, there’s something for everyone from their signature cocktail list, including their very own Archie Rose gin blend, to a decent wine selection, Australian and Japanese beers, soshu, sake and whisky’s.
We think Kid Kyoto is a top spot for the corporate crew, whether for work lunches or after work drinks. Also a great spot for groups. The vibe is loud and fun. You’ve got all the ingredients for a good time!
