Me and my friends spent a week in Osaka and after we found the bar we spent most nights closing down the bar with new friends we met inside. The music, drinks, and atmosphere is perfect all because of the owner/bartender.

Don't come for the great service... Nor the cosy, friendly bar... Come here because jazz is Universal. No matter, what part of world you are from, you will find music and friends to enjoy.

Ended up here after a great night at another bar round the corner, referred by the barman. Music choice is huge and varied, and will take requests. Great cocktails and very friendly staff. Unique bar you must check out
