Japanese Whiskey Mecca
Where
Nihon Whisky Lounge
Neighborhood
The Mission

Japanese whiskey is increasingly sought but rarely found in American bars — so Amen for Nihon Whiskey Lounge, the embassy for Japanese imports. All spirits are available by the taste, which is every reason to spend a night sampling 1oz snifters of Japan's finest whiskies.

What to Order

"Work with the bartender to build a great flight of Japanese whiskeys."

Jake Mauer

Nihon's bartenders are well versed in whiskey, so if you have favorite Scottish or American producers, or are in the mood for a particular flavor profile, they can suggest Japanese varieties to build a custom flight for you.

If you're not in the mood for whiskey, Nihon has a large selection of alternative spirits selection and cocktail list that has something for everyone.

If you are a whisky lover, Nihon offers the largest single malt selection found on the west coast with over 400 selections all available through bottle purchase. Nihon, one of San Francisco’s must see venues, offers contemporary Japanese cuisine with a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese Izakaya (Japanese version of tapas).

All whiskey bottles purchased can be stored in a private locker on the premises for future visits. Nihon is renowned for amazing, house made creative whisky and champagne cocktails.
