Mama Saan
Live Music Bars

57-59 Beach Rd, Bondi Beach, 2026

Follow the thrum of pulsating live music off the streets of Bondi and into a glowing, neon-lit space called Mama Saan which is also filled with the heady aroma of Japanese street foods.

Just like a trip to Japan, there’s surprises at every turn at Mama Saan – an imaginative, flavour-centric bar with an electric energy invoking images of Blade Runner’s retro-futurist, Osaka setting.

Five nights a week, diners and drinkers can soak in the transfixing sounds of music from an eclectic throng of DJs, artists and bands performing live on site. Thursdays see a rotating line-up of local and up-and-comers who bring their musical talents to the floor, while Sundays are reserved for the smooth sounds of jazz.

Inspired by travels throughout Japan – particularly late-night adventures in the lively, underground bars of Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto – Mama Saan pours light, refreshing drinks befitting its Bondi setting. Patrons can select from simple yet brilliantly executed Japanese-inspired cocktails, ice-cold Sapporo Beers, Japanese whiskeys, wine and fortifying sake.

Guests might be lured in by the tunes, but they’ll certainly stick around for Mama Saan's enticing food menu. In the kitchen, Mama Saan is elevating the flavours of Japanese street foods with his sensational selection of refined dishes designed to complement the venue’s iconic beachside locality. Mama Saan represents a collision of worlds.

It’s where Dōtonbori meets Bondi – and the resulting union is a delicious and entertaining one.

Be it a spontaneous drink with friends, a memorable dinner shared among family, or a chance to see unique acts perform live, Mama Saan presents a go-to meeting point where visitors can eat, drink, unwind and be entertained.

And yet, Mama Saan is not only a spot to gather for appetizing shared repast and quenching drinks – it’s also a dynamic choice for fun-fuelled, large-scale events and celebratory occasions.

Be transported to the humming heart of Japan’s nightlife, beating in Sydney’s east.
