Cocktail Bar

  • Good for special occasions
  • Innovative
Ventnor town's wine, sake and cocktail bar, featuring a Japanese Yakatori grill and private dining room. Our Izakaya-style bar is reminiscent of a gloomy, intimate small-style Japanese bar where shadows mingle with the aroma of sizzling skewers. Located in the heart of Ventnor, our cosy establishment invites you to indulge in the art of Japanese bar culture.
We serve a Japanese 'Omakase' selection of dishes, meaning 'Chef's Selection'. Our Head Chef will deliver a specially-selected range of small plates while you can sit back and enjoy our cocktails with an Asian-fusion twist.
Celebrating gloomy late-night drinks the intimate, Japanese way.

We look forward to looking after you. DL

    Overpriced and underwhelming food. Overall a very disappointing experience. Even though our server told us we’d be very full after choosing the £40 omakase, I left hungry. There was no atmosphere in the place, it was just loud. Save your money and go to Waterfront in Totland Bay.

    Had a fabulous meal, good wine and the usual friendly service. Always recommending the Drunken Lobster and the Smoking Lobster to friends.
