Sakura is a new Japanese style bar that has opened in the heart of Bournemouth. I along with many other bloggers and fashion lovers were invited to a Japanese fashion and cocktails evening. Fashion and cocktails is my kinda thing. I slipped into an all black outfit and dashed to the town centre, just in time to watch a presentation about the origins and future of Japanese fashion. The ever so lovely Hannah Jean from Find My Style was our speaker. We were given a little tutorial of oragami tea dresses which was a fun little keepsake for the evening.

Did you know that Sakura means cherry blossom? Me neither. After the origami we were given the opportunity to have a cocktail making master class from the lovely bar ladies. The cherry blossom, is cranberry juice, amaretto, cherry brandy, vanilla syrup and a cherry .

The interior is incredible, the wood floors, the pinks, reds and blues and the dark acsence. Did you see the ice bucket tables! It looks like something out of a movie.
