Sister Spots

Kumo founder and co-owner Andre Bishop is one of Melbourne's quiet achievers in hospitality.

He's the man behind the revitalisation of Japanese institution Izakaya Chuji, on Lonsdale Street In Melbourne. He also created Izakaya Chuji's South Melbourne offshoot.

Andre is also behind Nihonshu Sake & Shochu Bar in Melbourne's CBD.

Other venues that have seen Andre's touch are the pioneering Japanese pop culture Robot Bar as well as the multi-award winning Golden Monkey (inspired by the 1920s opium dens and bars of Shanghai).
