Kumo Izakaya

Kumo Izakaya and Sake Bar stands proud at the corner of Lygon and O'Connor Streets in Brunswick East. The building is iconic to the area and was built in 1956 – the bricks have the souvenir Olympics rings released during the Melbourne Olympics. Originally a bank, it took two days to cut through the vault to make the sake store! This old bank was transformed in Kumo Izakaya by Bryce Ritchie (artisan builder and craftsman from Richie Built Designer Builders - winners of the Award for Sustainable Architecture 2010), who worked as lead designer in a collaborative team involving architect Victor Isobe (from Zen Design, known in Melbourne for Yu-U, Heirloom and Tempura Hajime) and owners Andre and Jo Bishop. The eclectic Japanese design style seamlessy blends industrial and Art Deco influences.
