Reminiscent of the vibrant nightlife of Tokyo, 7 Tales is a speakeasy cocktail bar where
guests can experience urban Japan with a New York twist. Inspired by Japanese culture,
the bar will have a playful and innovative approach to mixed drinks. It's described as an
'Izakaya-styled speakeasy bar'.
An illustration of a man wandering through an archway into the unknown leads through
a large pivot entrance door. Confused yet intrigued guests are transported into a small
chamber entirely clad in mirrors; a second door opens, and suddenly, kanpai!, a flurry of
colour, energy and mystery engulfs them. A glowing lacquered orange bar carved out of
solid oak panels takes centre stage as they enter a nostalgic and mesmerising world of
Captivating canvases adorn the walls and ceiling, depicting a hidden story referencing
Japan's golden age movement throughout the 1960s. The customised graffiti titled,
'Relight My Fire. My Heart's Desire' is hand applied by talented graffiti artist Gary Yong.
Influenced by details gathered from the Zeitgeist of Japanese pop culture, the melting
pot of traditional paintings, the golden era of Art Deco and graphic design from various
1960s and 70s movements, he wrapped them up with a modern twist of street art and
graffiti-style execution. He created new and original visuals that pay homage to the past
but set new trends breaking away from cliches.
