KOI Dessert Bar has fast become the go-to place to satisfy any and all dessert cravings - with eye-popping creations that taste as good as they look. And now the brothers behind the delish dessert bar, Ronald, Arnold and Reynold Poernomo are turning their hand to cocktail making.

Smack bang next door to KOI Dessert bar in Chippendale, the brothers have opened Monkey's Corner, a hopping new boutique cocktail lounge. Designed to make you feel like it's your own personal well-stocked bar, the Japanese-inspired venue fits just 20 seats.

Calling on their Indonesian upbringing the brothers have put together a tightly edited menu of fresh Asian cocktail flavours - like the Litchiti Martini a killer concoction of Plantation 3-star rum, Fino sherry, lychee and rose. Which pair perfectly with the small plates on offer, think: whipped Silver Lake smoked eel on toast, or sweet treats like the Thai milk tea, dulce creamux, hazelnut sponge and salted caramel ice cream dessert.
