Kenny Rens

Opened in April 2017 Kenny Rens is a dramatic yet intimate Japanese Restaurant and whisky bar. Kenny Rens is famous for robata, a centuries old style of slow grilled meats over hot coals. The striking façade is classic yet contemporary while the interior space is traditional yet sophisticated; beautifully detailed and elegantly restrained. Textural charred and warm timbers contrast against monochromatic cool greys of concrete and stone. A bold art work by local artist Amy Finlayson sets off the interior, with beautiful organic indigo brush strokes meandering through the space.
