The name Izakaya Meiji Company references two things: a Japanese tavern or sake house (Izakaya) and the Meiji dynasty (1868-1912) known for its exchanges with the Western world. Izakaya Meiji is literally a Western-influenced Japanese tavern that serves American whiskey, beer, sake, and a variety of authentic Japanese dishes. They are well-known for being a craft cocktail bar and serve specialty drinks like the Meiji Mule (Vodka, shochu, black pepper and ginger syrup, and fresh lime juice) with a killer happy hour. Their menu offers a variety of Japanese delicacies with western twists like smoked sprat Onigiri (rice balls with nori) and pork, thyme, and apple Kushiayaki (served on skewers). Every night of the week after 11pm they feature their “Ramen Shop” menu.
