Saké Restaurant & Bar Opens On Flinders Lane

Sake Restaurant opens in Flinders Lane

When you’re craving the finest Japanese food, the sushi train down the street just isn’t going to cut it. But get your tempura under control, because high-end contemporary Japanese restaurant chain Saké has just opened its doors on Flinders Lane – and the food is as amazing as ever.

As the fifth Saké restaurant, and the second in Melbourne, you might be concerned that you’ve seen it all before. You couldn’t be more wrong. Flinders Lane is a dynamic hotspot, and Saké has done its new location justice with an exciting, high-energy restaurant.

Saké is already in four very popular locations. How will this new Melbourne location differ?

Saké Flinders Lane is more than a restaurant: it is a vibrant dining and entertainment space. The décor is edgier, the food has our own creative stamp on it, and the vibe is livelier. It’s the perfect late-night hangout, with the downstairs bar and dining area open until 3am from Thursday to Saturday and the kitchen catering to diners until 2am. A DJ booth will also have DJs performing Thursday to Saturday.

Can you tell us about the design of the Flinders St location? Who designed it and what we can expect?

Saké Flinders was designed by Melissa Collison Interior Design. It’s a stylish, edgy, two storey restaurant that features lots of Japanese grass cloths, handmade Japanese tiles, green marble, beautiful teak veneers and timber.

On the ground floor, there is a dramatic sweeping wood dining counter that overlooks a sushi bar and robatayaki grill. Downstairs is a spectacular bar, DJ booth and outdoor eating area. Come and check it out!
