Tanuki's Japanese Sushi and Saki Bar

Tanuki Japanese Sushi and Sake Bar is a Japanese Izakaya style restaurant, conveniently located between The Classic & Q Theatre. In Japan, Izakaya restaurants first began as sake shops, where customers where encouraged to eat from small plates while trying different sakes. 

If you’re looking for a delectable Japanese meal before or after a show, Tanuki’s informal style food would be perfect! Tanuki’s delicious plates are ideal for sharing with friends, as is the tradition at Izakayas, or, for keeping all to yourself! 

Tanuki also has a private Japanese themed dining room, offering set menu options. The private dining room seats between 15-35 guests. So gather a group of like-minded friends for a great night out!
