Bancho Bar, founded by Yoshi Onishi in November 2018, has become a popular destination in Sydney's Chinatown area. Yoshi's vision was to create a high-quality bar that would reflect the ambiance and style of Chinatown bars around the world. The aim was to reintroduce a sophisticated and upscale atmosphere similar to the bars found in Asian hotels, while still embracing the local culture and flavours.
Bancho Bar stands out by offering excellent products and service, breaking the stereotype of Chinatown as primarily a "cheap eats" destination. While the bar serves locally inspired food and drinks, it maintains a focus on quality and aims to elevate the overall experience for their customers.
Beyond its immediate success, Bancho Bar also has a larger goal of contributing to the growth of Chinatown as a whole. The establishment aims to pave the way for high-end bars, dining venues, fashion outlets, and more. Yoshi envisions Chinatown becoming a thriving area with increased foot traffic from morning to night.
Whether you are seeking a cozy Izakaya-style dining experience or simply want to enjoy a beer, Bancho Bar is a must-visit when exploring the Haymarket/Chinatown area. Conveniently located at 10 Thomas Lane, it offers a warm and inviting atmosphere for a memorable night out.
