Welcome to our world of "Nihon-shu!"
Sakagura was founded in 1996 and has become one of the top sake bars in the United States, attracting countless sake lovers. We consider it our duty and privilege to help clients explore the richness of Japanese food culture through our variety of selected sakes.
OUR PASSION TO SAKE
Perfect Quality Control Over 600 bottles of sake are thermostatically maintained at 5°F in a special 35 foot sake refrigerator.
The top selection in the U.S. of more than 200 kinds of sake (all imported from Japan)
"Experience" Provide customers with an experience of intrinsic quality of sake
*Sake has an infinite variety of flavors!
Most sakes are served by the glass. Their appeal and richness and variety of flavors are enhanced by variations in serving temperature – chilled and warmed.
*Supporting Actors, "The Glass"
Four types of serving glasses aid stimulation of the senses- "Aroma, Taste, Look, and Feel."
The Riedel glass will escort you to the wonderful world of aromas, whereas the Champagne glass will make you feel refreshed. The balloon glass will nurture sakes that have a plump sweetness, while the sherry glass will soften the tastes of mellow sakes.
Our beautiful "Tokkuri" carafe, "Ochoko" small sake glass, and "Masu" Japanese square box will also help you experience the rich and flavorful seasons of Japan and its traditions.
*Sake and Savory Appetizers
Sake also greatly complements a variety of savory cuisine. Your server will offer you sake pairings with every dish.
*For Sake Beginners
Certified Sake Advisors (every server) will help you discover your favorite sakes!
*Sakes Newly Arrived in New York
New sakes come into production every few minutes, so we always try to catch "fresh and newcomer" sake information and send it to you.
*Party with Sake Masters
We have sake-tasting parties regularly throughout the year. Sake masters come from Japan for this event in order to let sake lovers know one very simple thing, why sake is so very delicious!
