The Poernomo brothers (Koi Dessert Bar) are bringing their sweet touch to cocktails, opening up a bar next door to their Chippendale dessert parlour. The interior is inspired by the small bars of Tokyo, full of clean lines and functional wooden furniture. Working with “drinks consultant” Quynh Van Nguyen (Charlie Parker’s), they’ve put together a tightly edited list of cocktails laced with Asian flavours - their Pandan Ginger Pisco Sour is a twist on a classic, while the Litchiti Martini is made with Plantation 3-star rum, fino sherry, lychee and rose.  

It's not a desset bar, so you can pair your drink with a few small plates. There’s toast topped with whipped smoked eel, and a dish of thinly sliced ox tongue dressed with beef fat, lime and chives. Of course, the Poernomos’ dessert pedigree isn’t left to waste, with sweet numbers like a Thai milk tea and dulce cremeux with tapioca pearls, hazelnut sponge, freeze dried mandarin and salted caramel ice cream.
