Inspired by the crazy nightlife and ferocious drinking culture of Japan, AMAZAKE is an izakaya and Japanese specialty bar combining the best of drinking’s past, present and future. Located in Lan Kwai Fong, or LKF as it is popularly known, AMAZAKE is a safe haven for those restless souls who want an unforgettable night out filled with delicious foods, unbelievably creative cocktails and loads of some of Hong Kong’s most favoured drinking games!
We wanted to pay homage to one of Japan’s most beloved icons – the sumo wrestler - and re-imagined an izakaya and bar that would be ideal for these cherubic champions to play, relax and drink after a long hard day of wrestling on the mat.
“AMAZAKE” is named after the traditional Japanese drink made from fermented rice. The drink is normally sweet and popular to use in many Japanese food and drink recipes. It’s even been considered as a homegrown hangover cure – perfect to chug down after a night out at our sake izakaya bar in Central, Hong Kong’s favourite Japanese restaurant and the perfect place to chill out with friends in a relaxed atmosphere.
