Just found the place whilst searching for nearby bars on Google maps. Was not disappointed. The moonshine, and other recommendations by the bartender (Nico) were all amazing and the atmosphere and crowd on the night was perfect. Had such a good vibe, along with some awesome karaoke and met some really cool people! Thank you!

Nico is always in a great mood and a cool guy. Cool guy making cool cocktails. He also likes to sing. We are glad you enjoyed his company and had fun at Moonshine!

Good drinks, karaoke was fun, but the guy behind the bar was quite rude to me for no reason. Was just trying to have a bit of chit chat and he was arrogant and condescending towards me in front of my friends. So based on that I wouldn't recommend this place. It was a bit humiliating and has kept me down these past few days.

Hello, and if I remember you correctly you walked in with your group being very loud and yelling. You didn't order anything, and picked up a microphone and started yelling into the microphone. Let me remind this is while one of my Japanese customer's was in the middle of singing their song. I told you that if you wanted to irritate me or the entire bar, that what you were doing would do exactly that. If you had taken a chance to look around you will have realize that you immediately rubbed my Japanese customers the wrong way as well. They were irritated that you ruined their song. At this point you and your friends left. I would argue that maybe you should pay attention to etiquette or just have some respect for those around you. Yes, we have fun here. Yes we are loud here. No you cannot come in and ruin another person's time so you can have more fun. Considering this is your only review on trip adviser I must've really rubbed you wrong. However, I am not sorry in the slightest and I will ALWAYS reserve the right to make sure the atmosphere in Moonshine is conducive to being fun and exciting while at the same time not putting down the other patrons here.

Great place to wind down after a long day of sight seeing and eating in Osaka. Found this bar on Trip Advisor and decided to head there after dinner.

Drinks were nice and cheaper than expected. The bartender was very accommodating and knowledgeable.

Went with my wife on a Tuesday to find a nice place to unwind. Place did not disappoint. Friendly crowd with good taste in music. Does not matter if you cannot sing. Would definitely come back next time I am in Osaka.
