Looking for a new scene? Step into Mimi Kakushi and you’ll find yourself immersed in an Oriental age back when jazz was swinging into 1920s Osaka, merging modern art and Western fashion into the nightlife and street life of Japan. This unique culture clash that challenged the traditional status quo epitomised the golden era of Oriental Art Deco.
The two-floor space, brought to life by the team behind La Cantine du Faubourg, Ninive and Twiggy by La Cantine, pays homage to the modernist Mavo movement, celebrating the radical and avant-garde. This artistic anarchy, which peaked in the 1920s, shattered conventions and confronted traditions. What’s that you hear in the background? Those in the know will pick up on the distinctive sounds of trumpeter Fumio Nanri, known as the Satchmo of Japan, creating the perfect jazzy vibe.
In keeping with Mimi’s ethos, playful twists tweak well-known Japanese favourites. Savour the sharing plates of sashimi, sushi, tempura and gyoza, then move onto signature creations like a Kagoshima wagyu beef, paired with an extensive drinks menu, and an eclectic dessert selection rounding off the meal in a grand finale.
Acclaimed London interior architecture studio Pirajean Lees, led by Clemence Pirajean and James Michael Lees, collaborated with branding agency AM Studioworks for the design Mimi Kakushi.
