Last year, What Now Atlanta shared news of Succulent Hospitality’s plan to open Oishii, a sushi and noodle bar, in Woodstock’s downtown Adair Park development. The upscale restaurant will occupy the fourth floor of Adair Park’s Building 2 and feature indoor dining as well as a rooftop patio; the eatery will seat 60.
Downstairs from Oishii will be a bar concept from the same restaurant group. Kung Fu Bar will debut on Building 2’s terrace level, accessible from the back parking lot of the development. Both Oishii and Kung Fu will be about 1,700 square-feet in size.
Although Succulent Hospitality Co-owner Jason Sheetz is hesitant to use the word speakeasy to describe the bar, he says the concept featuring dancing and craft cocktails will be tucked out of sight, particularly from the front of the building. Open late night, Kung Fu will feature live music, DJs, and a dance floor.
Bringing an “underground Tokyo feel,” Kung Fu will sport a red color-scheme and banquette seating. “It’s not underground per se,” he explained, “But it’s going to have that you-have-to-find-the-entrance feel.”
To complement those craft cocktails, Kung Fu will have its own bar bites menu, which hasn’t been finalized just yet. Think dumplings and fried rice… “What you would like to eat when you’re at a speakeasy in downtown Tokyo” Sheetz added.
Look for both Oishii Sushi and Kung Fu Bar to open by the end of 2022.
Of the bar, Sheetz says, “You’re going to feel transported to another world.”
Note: A comment made by Sheetz comparing the bar to an opium den has been removed at his request.
