“Hidden whisky bar gem!”
Review of Bar Freedom

Bar Freedom

Description: BAR FREEDOM is a small boutique(preferred for 4 people or less) bar in the center of Namba(near landmark Doutonbori Street) run by Hiroshima born Bartender Oshita-san. We specialize in Japanese whiskeys and Japanese spirits based cocktails. If you're into crazy party bar scenes with loud music, this place might not the right fit for you. But if you're in the mood for a good cocktail in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere , this will be the perfect place for you, we hope! We have pride in our service and on behalf of Oshita-san, we looks forward to meet each and everyone of you from different parts of the world. PS. We have English menu on a tablet :)

This place was absolutely brilliant! Oshita-San was extremely welcoming and polite and made fantastic cocktails, which were game to try after reading some of the other reviews. I'm so glad we tried this place out. It's a tiny little establishment, that seats no more than 10 people with the most fantastic whisky collection imaginable. Two mates and I went along on a Friday evening around 12:30am and stayed until closing at 2am - we were the only patrons there which made it just that little bit more special. Will definitely return sometime in the future!

Great little clean and neat spot to have a few drinks after dinner. Good selection of whiskey's and other liquor. Quaint and comfortable with seats at the bar makes the experience very personal and enjoyable.

My buddies and I were looking for somewhere to drink after walking around dontonburi. We stumbled upon this bar, and it was great. Tiny and Oshta (spelling?) were incredibly helpful and were great company. We stayed way longer than we anticipated we would not only because of the drinks, but also for the great company. You won't regret going here, it'll make your Osaka trip much better!

Great cozy and intimate bar. We visited with a large group of friends (we took up the whole bar) but Tony and Oshita were incredibly accommodating and friendly. One of the best G&Ts I've ever had. Perfect for a quieter night out in Osaka.
