A restaurant specialising in southern Japanese food and sake cocktails in Mayfair’s Heddon Street.

Sakagura serves Washouku - which a quick Google search will reveal translates literally to “food of Japan” - and you’ll be able to pull up a stool and watch the chefs do their thing from the theatrical open kitchen. Interiors are modern and authentic, and you’ll be able to choose between delicacies like Hakata Yakitori and freshly prepared sushi.

The Gekkeikan sake company have been drafted in to run the dedicated bar, where a vast range of the spirit will be on show to take either straight or as part of a cocktail.
