Yukie’s Snack Bar
Mr. Miyagi’s highly anticipated expansion into its neighbouring Chapel Street space as been unveiled; aptly named after his mistress, Yukie’s Snack Bar.
The team behind the contemporary Chapel Street Japanese Food & Liquor venue has responded to an influx in customer demand, with the launch of this sophisticated yet satirical double-story cocktail bar and snack lounge. Yukie’s Snack Bar is the ideal spot for a cheeky pre-Miyagi dinner cocktail, or a long night of bar-side beats.
Yukie’s takes inspiration from Mr Miyagi’s unique food and beverage offering; serving up bite-sized counterparts, a sexy cocktail list and a bright, flirty atmosphere.
Reminiscent of Miyagi’s signature twist, food will be inventive and designed to share. Highlights include Kingfish cured on a Himalayan rock salt slab with green chili, coriander cream and crispy quinoa. Another favourite is set to be the Applewood hot smoked salmon tostadilla, served with fennel, apple, coriander, with yuzu shoyu dressing.
Lock your lips around a selection of quirky cocktails including a raspberry and tonka bean margarita with black lava salt, or a salted watermelon martini; with fresh watermelon juice, gin, apple and hibiscus garnished with Midori infused “faux” olives.
The former art gallery space features fluro-pink LED lighting in the shape of Yukie’s puckered lips, with a back-facing view onto the graffiti-covered brick walls of Artists Lane. A specially commissioned artwork by HEESCO, a celebrated muralist and fine artist, is reminiscent of street-side Japanese wall art featuring anime characters.
P-E-K STUDIO is responsible for the design and interior fit out which is light and bright, just like Yukie’s personality. Drop lighting and custom-designed furniture has been created to reflect Yukie’s vibrant and sophisticated style. Bare floorboards and stone bar tops keeps Yukie’s look chic and elegant. With large custom wooden tables, concrete benches, bar seats downstairs and casual lounge dining upstairs, she has the capacity to cater for 120.
Mr. M is still the boss around here so when Mr. Miyagi is open Yukie will be too – 7 nights from 5pm until late.
