Tokyo-based bar Tokyo Confidential touches down in Sydney next month, and what better place to host the pop-up than Japanese-inspired restaurant and listening bar Rekōdo?

Drop in to the vinyl bar at Barangaroo House from 6–10pm on Wednesday, May 1, for elevated house party vibes, with DJs spinning a playlist devised by the bar's co-founder Tom Egerton and venue manager Sho Nomura, alongside a curated selection of Tokyo Confidential's signature cocktails.

The menu for the night features four cocktails. Options include the Tea Sea with gin, sauvignon blanc, green tea, grappa and salt; the Tokyo Banana Colada with bourbon, banana, coconut and pineapple; and the Glass Slipper with rum, yuzushu, pandan and melon.

"It's exciting to be able to bring our brand of hospitality to Sydney and share it with guests, to really try and bring some of Tokyo with us. We aren't the typical Japanese bar people may be expecting," Egerton says. In addition to the cocktail lineup, Rekōdo's Head Chef Michael Dabbs has designed a small menu of bar food to complement the drinks, including dishes like bang bang chicken, yellowfin tuna nori tacos, and soft-shell crab baos.
