Epic sake, insane cherry blossom installations and more celebs than the side bar of shame.

You want Scarlett Johanssen (not Bill Murray) to walk round the corner when you're at the bar here, she could easily do so as well. It's like a scene from Perez Hilton's wet dream in here sometimes, packed with A to C listers. This is how the other half live, and boy is it a smooth operation.

You're greeted by hot chicks at the door who'll show you through the bar/restaurant/Japanese private garden....just get to the bar (you can eat here, plus you get the drinks quicker). The cocktail list is long, they're almost as good as the food, and somehow it all feels healthy; go with it.

Actually this place is really screaming out for a sake session, they have them each and every way, sparkling, sweet, hot, cold, they'll show you how its done, and its pretty lethal. Soak it up with some Chilli edamame, and if you're not paying (you must be special) go long on the Black Cod. Come early, dress sexy, then just sit back and watch the gold diggers and bankers chomping at the bit.

PS. Book baby book, everyone (or their PA) has. Not even BarChick would swan in here without a booking.
