the cocktail bar

Carefully curated recipes, fresh ingredients, and lots of love.

Japanese liquor goes perfectly well with food, that’s quite unique. We have a nice selection of Japanese-crafted liquors. And we believe the cocktails we have created are the perfect match for our Izakaya dishes.

We also offer a wide selection of sake, beer and wine.

An authentic Japanese dining experience.

An Izakaya (ee-ZAH-ka-yah) is like the Japanese version of a “tapas bar” or a “gastropub”.

Typically an informal place where people meet with friends or colleagues after work, and share servings inspired by almost all styles of Japanese cuisine — from street food to sushi and sashimi — while choosing from a vast selection of cocktails, ice-cold beer, wine, and, of course, sake.

The tradition has its origins in sake shops that allowed customers to drink on site:
“i” means “stay” and “sakaya” means “sake shop.”

We're committed to quality, while looking after the Earth.

We believe that great food doesn’t have to be harmful for the environment. In an effort to reduce our impact on the environment, we try our best to source organic ingredients as much as possible, and buy fish from certified suppliers.

Our chopsticks are re-usable and made of fiberglass, which is better for the Earth, and for your health.

Our takeaway packaging is made from recycled plastic, as the greener alternatives are still significantly more expensive. We encourage you to sort plastic so that you too, help us make a difference.

Vegan & allergy-friendly.

We do everything we can to ensure good hygiene. Vegans and people with allergies can feel safe with us. We have dedicated tools so that cross-cut contamination doesn’t take place.

We are honest and always follow the authorities' requirements for freezing the fish, even if the color can become a little less "Instagram-friendly" sometimes.
