Little Red Pocket

It seems that at some point an undefined person decided that if an event or space is to carry an Asian theme it must sport a red and black colour palate.

With its red stools and dark walls the brand new Little Red Pocket bar in Melbourne's CBD is a solid adherent to this. But thankfully what it doesn't stick to is the rule that any Melbourne bar worth its salt must be concealed behind a door in a dumpster-lined lane way.

The core business here is sake and cocktails ordered from the comfort of your bar stool or couch via an iPad. The interactive menu lets you browse, order and pay for your food and drinks, as well as let you add a note to the chef or bartender to ensure all the details are just to your liking.

For the diehard social media types who happened to have accidentally left their smart phones at home Twitter and Facebook can also be accessed from the devices.

The bar offers a variety of areas to have a lunch time Japanese feast, an after work drink with colleagues, or a night out with friends. A tidy DJ booth hints at the party atmosphere created later but I'd be just as happy sitting in the corner with some sake and a bowl of edamame beans to keep me company.
