Kaido is permanently closed
Kaido is a Japanese restaurant and cocktail lounge in the Design District with a rather over-the-top interior. There’s a terrifying chandelier made of 1,000 gold butterfly knives above the bar - and almost everything inside this place is either gold or black. The cocktails are pretty good and their uni fondue is worth trying if you like uni. But we still recommend you just come here for drinks - and we also recommend you try and get a seat in their backroom speakeasy called Ama, which is open Friday and Saturday. It’s way less pretentious in there and you won’t have to worry about being impaled by falling chandeliers.
