Shokunin was born of the idea to provide exceptional food and cocktails in a room that is all inclusive. Crafted cocktails give way to charred yakitori and small plates shared among friends with a bottle of sake. Seasonal and local ingredients are combined with traditional Japanese techniques and flavour profiles to create a truly contemporary Japanese dining experience.
