A new Japanese rock ‘n’ roll bar is opening in Manly this Saturday.

The 350-seater venue is located underneath the Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific Hotel on the Manly beachfront.

Executive chef Benjamin Orpwood, formerly of Toko in Surry Hills, has dreamt up Daniel San’s cool ‘n’ casual rock ‘n’ roll-meets-the-beach vibe.

Confused by what that actually means? Translation: Japanese bites including crunchy tuna and salmon tar-tacos, the freshest sashimi, steamed buns with soft shell crab and kimchi mayo.

Daniel San also has a Robata grill that will pump out Japanese skewers including Shiso rolled pork belly and chicken skin with ponzu, quail eggs and prawn with yuzu koshu.

Daniel San’s Sake Bar will serve up a selection of premium Japanese sakes and beers,  along with cocktails, wines and spirits. Imported from Japan, the Japanese beer slushie machine will give guests a giggle.

Daniel San owner Fraser Short said, “We wanted to capture the fun and slightly quirky elements of Japanese culture infused with a rock ‘n’ roll vibe, whilst creating an offering that really capitalises on this amazing space’s beachside location.”

“I think this is exactly what Manly needs right now. Daniel San fits perfectly with the Northern Beaches’ lifestyle – relaxed, healthy and fun. A casual fun chow-down style eatery where people can hang out, straight from the beach,” said Short.

Daniel San’s rock ‘n’ roll bar eatery space will include an outdoor beachside seating area, an exclusive private dining room area with beachfront views for up to 25 people on the venue’s mid-level and an indoor/outdoor rooftop ‘Dojo’ that can hold up to 200 people.

Daniel San is located at 55 North Steyne, Manly, Sydney.
