Okayama travel guide

Where to drink in Okayama, Japan

Hau 'Oli Kitchen

This small, friendly bar's atmosphere and theme are Hawaiian, although the bar food is mostly seafood and Italian.

Bar Hips

A popular bar among locals and visitors alike, across from Ishiyama Park. Among the liquors on the menu is Okinawa-style awamori — best on the rocks.

Bar Rude Boy

An upbeat reggae bar; the space is small, but there's enough room for a DJ and good irie.

Bar Towser

Look for the kitty silhouette. They serve cocktails and bourbon, with beer and bar food available as well.

Bar Vagabond

A well-stocked wine cellar and whiskeys from around the world.

Pinball Cafe

Friendly and welcoming American themed bar and cafe with a wide variety of cocktails as well as all the standard fare. A good selection of Japanese and Western food is served until the early hours, but come early for a reasonably priced and surprisingly good lunch set. If you're lucky you may even catch the owner performing live with his 1950s rock band, an occasion not to be missed.

Jazz Piano Bar

Tucked away on a back street, this place is cozy, relaxing, and looks straight out of a movie. It is the most perfect little jazz spot ever. The proprietor is friendly and can speak English. Between occasional live events, staff entertains on the piano and bass. A full bar and light snacks are available. Cover charge is ï¿¥300.
