“We’re mixing New York and Japan with lots of neon, lots of lanterns, and gourmet street food,” Rashaad Cezar, BRKLYN’s owner says. “We’ve dressed up the bar with a Tokyo makeover, but we’re putting our own little New York spin on it as well.”
Every Tuesday through Sunday until March 20th, head to Rundle Street for a different version of the Tōrō Yokocho AKA Lantern Alley party. Tuesdays are dedicated to food; You will find Japanese-inspired fusion items such as ramen and house-made dumplings on a menu usually dedicated to American cuisine––think lobster rolls, Philly cheese steaks, and Reuben sandwiches.
As a collaboration with The Exchange and The House of Suntory’s HAKU Vodka, Wednesday’s are dedicated to cocktails and The House of Suntory’s gin. BRKLYN’s cocktail menu has also has a Japanese makeover with traditional ingredients, such as cherry blossoms.
The weekend is dedicated to the “Disco Tokyo” party, with DJs on the Rundle Street balcony. The balcony is also used on Sunday for a “recovery session” with hibachi. With an event on practically every day through the Fringe, BRKLYN can be your reliable post-festival go-to.
“The event ties in really well with the Fringe because we have a balcony and central location on Rundle Street,” Cezar says.
“The event is all about fun and Fringe.”
