Cafe KaiZen is located at Hanover square where Jalouse nightclub used to be. Its aim is to bring the energy of East London into the West End and tying it in with some New York-style cocktail culture and with an Asian fusion twist, Japanese food to be specific. Get on Cafe Kaizen guestlist or make a Cafe Kaizen table reservation with London Night Guide.
A melting pot of creativity and an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city, spend your days in a hedonistic haze at Café KaiZen – the new space to eat, work, shop and socialize all under one roof.
The café and cocktail lounge features an indoor market place or ‘bar’ket’ featuring 20 bright young fashion designers complete with a fresh juice and smoothie bar. Yes, expect an indoor market offering super food smoothies, boozy cocktails and a menu of Japanese cuisine (we recommend you try their dim sum!) – and with its late hours (’till 3am), expect to eat, then party, then eat some more.
The Spice Route inspired menu ranges from dim sum & bao buns, to sashimi & gyoza paired with fresh mint tea and Middle Eastern baklava. For our alcohol lover friends, don’t fret as London’s leading mixologists will also be creating mouth-watering Café KaiZen signature cocktails. If you are looking at celebrating a special occasion here, the venue is available to host private parties. Also, if the mood is right, this zen place evolves into a nightclub. The Dress Code is at all times smart, elegant and chic for all the guests.
The sartorial offerings are just as eclectic with a mix of ready-to-wear, lingerie and accessories with one-of-a-kind vintage treasures. Think military bespoke jackets by Pinky Laing, yoga street wear from iamVibes and pretty underwear by Nichole De Carle, you can even style your pets in pieces from Creature Clothing (yes, Café KaiZen is dog friendly). Up cycled furniture from Carlos Almada’s ManRay NYC, interiors by 44th Hill, the design team behind The Rum Kitchen & Chop Shop and finally Cherry Blossom trees set within the industrial design complete the bill. Be sure to check out the revolving ‘ART’ gallery – Schoony, the sculptor who has worked with the likes of Paloma Faith and Cara Delevigne, will be one of the first to exhibit, with the likes of Maximilian Wiedemann to follow.
Café KaiZen is the brainchild of Dan Kapp, Timo Weber, Jin Nilsson and music industry whizz Zues Sherlock who, combined in their ‘youth’, hail from other much loved social ventures including Movida, Whisky Mist, Cuckoo Club and, most recently, Le Baron London. Now a few years older, they have created a stylish environment where cultures dance, ideas dream and senses are satisfied, Café KaiZen re-vitalises the social experience.
