The three different spaces of our venue and custom menus can accommodate any private event from birthday parties, company parties, corporate, social and cocktail events, to business presentations, symposiums and dinner gatherings. For those who have yet to visit Bang Bang, it’s quite a trip. The second-floor space is accessed from a steep stairwell that designers revamped into a tile-lined tunnel with piped-in subway sounds. Upstairs, diners can choose between the quieter, well-lit sushi barroom or the dimly lit social room with bar, dance floor and an endless stream of weird Japanese videos and cartoons playing on the walls. In the women’s bathroom, one stall has been famously devoted entirely to dreamy photos of actor Ryan Gosling (whose name also graces a specialty sushi roll). There are also tributes to Bruce Lee, Hello Kitty and Godzilla.
