Shinsei Launches Izakaya from 5-6:30pm M-F in the Remodeled Upstairs Lounge—The Sakaya Room

Already a prime social gathering place for Dallas diners, Shinsei continues to evolve and innovate to keep the experience fresh for its loyal patrons. Beginning on Friday, May 8th, Shinsei will launch Izakaya-inspired service in the upstairs lounge, newly remodeled by Dallas designer Greg O’Neal. The updated design aesthetic replaces the original lime green with a new color palette, including pops of bright coral. And a heavy curtained wall reduces outside noise and allows the lounge to be closed off for private events.
