Saga is hidden behind two ornate hand-carved wooden doors just a few twists and turns away from Kensington Street. Inside, the bar looks like it could have been in Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
The intimate space is lit by lanterns hanging from vines and roots that sprawl across moodily lit stone-stacked walls. There’s a water feature with a huge buddha head, an illuminated technicolor jungle motif, and the bathrooms are adorned in gold-leaf and mosaics.
COVID hit hard for bars and restaurants around Sydney and the world. Our team had a day to get Saga Bar online and operating. Time was of the essence on this project.
