Gastrology bloggers dined courtesy of Sooki Lounge.
Sooki Lounge opened its doors late last year. The venue is baroque-themed and has a relaxed vibe, setting itself apart by offering a unique hangout spot for locals in the area.
Prior to establishing Sooki Lounge, owner, Suzana Pozvek ran a gourmet deli and established an organic Moroccan restaurant in the Eastern suburbs. With experience on her side, Sooki Lounge’s service runs like a well-oiled machine.
Sooki Lounge is an excellent venue which features live music, artist exhibitions and assorted entertainment. Their tapas menu complements these aspects of the venue and features organic/free range produce where possible. Inspired by modern Spanish and Mexican fusion flavours, Head Chef Mudit Kumar recommends the Garbonzas con espinacas, which he believes represents his menu the best. The dish is a traditional chickpea dish cooked with pimenton, spinach and picada da pan.
The cocktail menu is impressive, boasting a wide selection of old and new favourites. The bar also offers a solid selection of wines and craft beers.
Bands are booked through Jeff Springfield, Sooki Lounge’s event manager with live music scheduled every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For the adventurous, belly dancing and burlesque workshops are also held at the venue (usually on Tuesdays and Wednesdays).
With experienced and engaging bar staff ready to make you a cocktail of your choice, Sooki Lounge is a relaxing spot to unwind with friends and family over live music.
