A great place for the most experienced – or a brand new – sake lover.

Sake Bar Ginn just opened in December and it’s already built a huge buzz in Hong Kong’s sake scene.

Located on a 4th floor in Lan Kwai Fong, the sake bar offers a wide selection of sake and Japanese snacks for those serious about their sake.

With over 70 different kinds of sakes and about 20 – 30 additional sakes depending on the season, Sake Bar Ginn is going to be your first stop in Lan Kwai Fong for sake.

They also serve Japanese beers, shochu and whiskies (but no wines), and it’s definitely more bar than restaurant even though they offer some delicious Japanese tapas style dishes that go well with sake.

Tucked between Insomnia and Volar on the main drag in Lan Kwai Fong in the Ho Lee Building, Sake Bar Ginn has a patio area as well as an indoors are – though the shisha place next door can get rowdy and take away some of the atmosphere – there’s always inside.

One of the cool things about Sake Bar Ginn is that if you don’t know much about sake you can learn by ordering some of the sake tasting flights: there are 4 sets to choose from, each tasting portions is of three different sakes from a single brewery. Sake Bar Ginn’s founder Ayuchi Momose is also around to help you with her years of sake know-how.

The tapas menu is also great as you can see in these photos – so if you want to jump out of wine or whiskey for a night definitely have a look at Sake Bar Ginn.
