Canterbury nightclub Steinbeck and Shaw will reopen next month as Tokyo Tea Rooms, a boutique late night cocktail bar.
The venue has previously been occupied by national chains, but has now been acquired by the owners of Club Chemistry, Distinctive Bars.
A company spokesperson said “Tokyo Tea Rooms will live and serve by the Japanese ’Ichi-go Ichi-e’ which loosely translates as ’one time, one meeting’ – no two events or encounters will ever be exactly the same. This concept is embodied in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.
“By embracing this approach, Tokyo Tea Rooms will take guests on a new and stimulating journey every time they visit, via unique design, evolving cocktail menus and exciting immersive live performances.
“With a fresh and elegant aesthetic infused with some brand-new surprises, Tokyo Tea Rooms will provide a unique ‘first time’ experience, every time.”
Tokyo Tea Rooms lunches on Saturday 18th August at 8pm with an exclusive opening ceremony.
