Secret but pricey Japanese bar

‘A golden key can open any door', says the gilded floor in front of this seeming wall. While you might not have a key, just a push on the right spot on the mirrored back wall in Japanese restaurant Izy and a full wallet is all you’ll need to get into Cache, the latest speakeasy-inspired bar to hit the local scene.

Inside, the handsome urban space designed by architect Gaurang Khemka (also the designer of the Izy’s dining room) seats a lean 40 that’s available to reserve, or walk in to, if you’re lucky. Drinks fall under the purview of industry newcomer Kley Dhillon from the US, and the sizeable, if a bit pricey, menu offers a huge selection of artisanal wines and champagnes, including a special Library collection of mainly French bottles with prices peaking at $4,750 for a bottle of 2000 Chateau Ausone, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.

Given the establishment’s overall Japanese theme, a smaller selection of sakes ($95-$270), Japanese craft and commercial brews ($11.50-$22.50) and whiskies like Hakushu, Hibiki and Yamazaki are available by the pour, but if you’re craving a little something more bespoke, Dhillon and his team can whip up one of the six classically-inspired cocktails ($16-$21) to sip on.
