Aqua Kyoto offers delicious Japanese cuisine accompanied by beautiful views from the fifth floor of the former Dickins & Jones building.

Paul Greening, the Head Chef, has devised a menu focused on imaginative and modern Japanese cuisine. Prepare for sushi and sashimi presented beautifully as well as an array of hot dishes. Aqua Kyoto features a central sushi bar and open sumibiyaki charcoal grill. The black and red decor offers a sense of theatricality to this venue. Aqua Kyoto is next to Aqua Spirit, a charming cocktail bar.

Aqua Kyoto can be hired for private events with the wonderful roof terrace. The intimate private dining room is available for hire for 10 guests. This is the ideal venue for dinner and drinks with friends or colleagues as well as parties.

If you indulged just a little bit too much this festive season, start your new year off with aqua kyoto and aqua nueva’s dry January cocktail, Spicy Shrub. Made with Seedlip Original Spice 94, a non-alcoholic botanical spirit infused with cloves, nutmeg and dried citrus, the cocktail is made with fresh ginger, fresh peach, cinnamon shrub and soda for £11.50. It’s the perfect solution for what to drink when you’re not drinking. Available in aqua kyoto and aqua nueva until 31st January.

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so if you’re looking for extra brownie points, why not sort your plans early this year?
