Sydney’s Japanese Crane Restaurant in Potts Point opens

By Henry Ng.

Sydney’s upmarket restaurant and bar scene receives yet another boost with the opening of Crane Bar Restaurant. Located in trendy Potts Point, the official opening saw a delivery of model-esque geishas, Taiko drummers, Japanese inspired canapés and cocktails, all to compliment the Eastern Asian influence of the institution.

Upon entering the venue, guests were greeted with an abundance of alcohol that included champagne, cocktails, Japanese beers and an adept chef who was delicately slicing a 50kg tuna and plating the Sashimi. Hors d’oeuvres such as scallops and rice balls were also served, leaving guests’ palettes gratified.

The courtyard area highlighted the Zen influence where Japanese blossom plants stood tall, lanterns illuminated soft incandescent lighting and cane seats occupied the room. The young, trendy and elite crowd mingled and looked effortlessly beautiful while the DJ pumped out a continuous mix of urban house music. The event would not be completed without the sprinkle of celebrities such as Samara Weaving, Dan Ewing and Luke Jacobz (were the Home And Away cast the only ones who received the memo?).

Crane Bar Restaurant has an overall relaxed atmosphere and is the sort of modern and cultural-inspired venue that you could take a first date to or catch up with old friends at. The menu is exquisite with Japanese fusion cuisine but make sure you go with a wallet that is handsomely filled.
