This is one of those places you can't see from the street, it's a hidden, rustic, sake bar below ground level. They have Stevie's favorite sake (Bishonen) and tasty snacks (the okonomiyaki is exceptional). A fun place to go and stay awhile but don't try it with more that four people, it is small and doesn't work for larger groups. Not open until after 8pm.
