Appropriately located the the heart of the old distillery, know known as Huashan Creative park, Shochu Yakitori embraces the excellent atmosphere of it's surroundings to deliver an unique drinking experience.

Shochu is a premium izakaya, a Japanese style bar serving food to accompany drinks. As it's name would suggest, the specialty is Japanese shōchū.   Shochu Yakitori displays an impressive selection fine Japanese shochu along it's bar, as well as in the well stocked, glass walled cooler at the back wall.  In addition to the range on shochu, other Japanese alcoholic options, from sake to fine whiskey are on offer. They also maintain a good selection of Japanese craft beer, to complement the Orion lager on draft.

While Shochu Yakitori's stylings are atypical of a traditional izakaya, they provide a gritty ambiance suitable for a night of drinking and debauchery.    The bar is lit by surgical lights, straight out of the operating room giving off a pleasant, yet somewhat eerie glow. Overall, the bars interior is impressive, what's even better is the pleasant outdoor patio, which can be a hard thing to find in Taipei.

Shochu Yakitori is a splended Japanese bar and a great place to have some tasty snacks to alongside some tasty drinks.
