  • Underground sake bar and Japanese tapas (izakaya). Dark and intimate. Love this place. Claire and my first date. -Francine, The Real L Word
  • Bottle of Dassai 50 if you don't know what to get. Best Sakai for the dollar
  • Be nice. Crew is awesome here.
  • The sign might say "Sake Bar" but they're rocking Yamazaki and Hibiki 12yr so come get your whiskey on.
  • Wide sake selection. Dassai 50 is the bomb
  • A dark, underground sake cave with cool bartenders. Get the Hakkaisan Honjozo neat - pricey, but you certainly won't regret it. If you get the munchies, go for salmon or mentaiko chazuke.
  • Careful cuz you gon get drunk
  • Best hidden sake bar in the city. -Claire, The Real L Word
  • extensive sake list plus great food, but the atmosphere makes this place a must!
  • They have an extensive selection of sake from the Rihaku to the Kikusui. Just as popular is the yummy lineup of appetizers, one cant go wrong with the Shrimp Dumplings or Japanese Pancakes.
  • Share a bottle with friends. A shimehari tsuru, specifically.
  • Without a shout of a doubt the best sake bar in NYC
  • Very cool atmosphere, reminds me of alley bars in Japan. In addition to lots of sake, Decibel is one of the few places I've found with pickled garlic! They're at the bottom of the small stairwell.
  • Drink some of the best sake in town, wolf down their delicious udon, and scribble your name in Sharpie on the wall!
  • melon balls!
  • Takowasa (raw octopus with wasabi sauce) paired with Yuki no Bosha is a perfect match!
  • our favorite sake spot in the city, perfect for an evening with friends.
  • be ready to throw down, but well worth it, great vibe, delicious food, better sake
  • Great small plates to go w drinks! Def try a sake from their specials.
  • This is the very first sake bar that opened in NYC. The decor is reminiscent of CBGBs and the sake list is divine. Warning: rude wait staff and pretty awful food but that is apart of this bar's charm.
