Sakura at Sake no Hana
This week Sake no Hana, which is part of the impressive Hakkasan Group hosted an exclusive party to celebrate the launch of Sakura at Sake no Hana. The bar, which is located beneath the restaurant on the ground floor, was beautifully decorated with cherry blossom. Stunning pink branches also currently frame the door outside and they certainly bring a sense of spring splendour to the grey London pavements.
Inside the popular party guests gathered to try some delicious cocktails. There were also some very nice mocktails available for those avoiding a mid-week tipple. A selection of canapés was served that highlighted the menu in the main restaurant and included maki rolls and tempura squid, among other fresh Asian nibbles.
The event took inspiration from the ancient Japanese custom of enjoying the passing beauty of the ‘sakura’ cherry blossom by feasting on sake and sushi under trees. It is definitely worth popping in for a drink or dinner over the coming weeks to make the most of the gorgeous décor.
Sake no Hana is located at 23 Saint James’s Street, London SW1A 1HA. Reservations can be made by telephoning 020 7925 8988 or visiting the website sakenohana.com
