It's come to the world's attention recently that hamsters have startlingly human appetites. They crave burritos. They tear through pizza. But do they have a place to go on casual dates or out drinking with their co-rodents? Turns out they do -- and it's run by Ginji, the hamster bartender.

Ginji's owner, Kosuke Sato, is a Japanese tombstone salesman who's handcrafted a tiny bar for his fuzzy pal, and has uploaded photos of the watering hole to Twitter, much to the glee of the entire Internet. There, Ginji serves tiny sake cocktails and even sushi plates at what one can only assume to be the happiest happy hour ever.
