Ten years on, the sumo is now a geisha. Following a revamp, this urban Japanese dining concept now exudes a countercultural vibe and a reimagined experience, lifestyle and attitude.
Inspired by the antics of a rule-bending geisha, Kinki seeks to offer the legendary hospitality of the traditional geisha while allowing diners to let their hair down, all the while enjoying creative food and drink. Kinki does this with popular Japanese comfort foods reinvented into addictive new classics; and a bar list of liquids from East and West, including unique cocktails built on foundational cocktail-making techniques woven with Asian influences in surprising and unexpected ways. Kinki engages the senses with two levels of space – a restaurant and an al fresco rooftop bar. Diners socialise and unwind amidst immersive graffiti-style artworks by leading local artists evoking an edgy yet sophisticated ambience. Kinki fuses tradition and unconventionality for a new way of living; and wants you along for the ride.
Kinki occupies the two levels at Customs House, a conserved building built in the 1960s for the Singapore Customs Police.

Designed by local design studio, Punkt Creative, the prints evokes Kintsugi, the old Japanese art of mending broken pottery by joining the fragments with capillaries of gold.
