Description

SF Weekly's Description

This cool, glam, retro-dotcom nightspot serves up classy Japanese small plates and cutting-edge sushi, but what the place is really known for are its 400 varieties of single-malt scotch, the biggest selection on the Pacific Coast. That bottle of 50-year-old MacPhail's will set you back $4,000 or so, but for a smaller stipend you can settle for a skillfully concocted Rob Roy, sazerac, or other whisky-licious cocktail. Izakaya snacks like taro fries, hamachi-stuffed shiitake, and seaweed-wrapped Kobe burgers are pretty tasty too. There's a private red-plush hideaway upstairs for the more elite tipplers.

Tips from foursquare

    Finish your meal with the uni spoon. Incredible!

  • SF Weekly on 05/24/11

    SF Weekly’s Best Of 2011 Winner – Editorial Pick – BEST WHISKY COLLECTIONNihon beats them all with a staggering 450 different bottles, about 330 of those being single-malt Scotch…

  • Susan L. on 07/28/11

    Classy and intimate spot in the most random part of the Mission. Great selection of whisky, superb happy hour, and get the agedashi tofu with a side of rice.

  • Cheapism on 03/05/11

    At the popular Izakaya happy hour spot for 50% off all appetizers from 5:30-7pm. Try traditional Japanese style bottlekeep, buy a bottle from their whiskeys and they store it in a locker for free.

    order a sazerac and sip slowly
