bar miyako is back… (sort of)

“People keep asking if I’m back and I haven’t really had an answer,
but yeah, I’m thinking I’m back (sort of)”
–John Wick (and bar miyako)


4月から臨時休業中の #barmiyako ですが、6月から少しずつ営業を再開していきたいと思います。ただ、まだまだ油断できない状況にあるかと思いますので、しばらくは制限付きの営業になりますことをご了承いただければと思います。





As the state of emergency has been lifted, bar miyako will reopen gradually from June, but given that we’re still in an uncertain environment, please understand that operations will be somewhat restricted, in order make the bar as safe a place as possible for everyone.

For the time being starting June 1, operating hours will be from 6pm to 10pm and seating will be limited to 6 people (4 at the bar, 2 at the table).

I’ll have sanitizing hand gel for everyone to use when they come in, and I may ask people to refrain from coming if they’re not feeling well (sorry!) I’ll also have 5 air purifiers and 2 anti-bacterial humidifiers going full steam. Plus I’ll be wearing a mask most of the time.

I’m still in uncharted territory here, but I’m hoping we can all raise a toast together to a safe, but also fun, “new normal” bar scene soon!

bar miyako and take out

営業再開間近の #barmiyako からのお知らせ第2弾です。自粛中に期限付き酒販免許を取得しましたので、お酒のテイクアウトもできます!





Another notice from bar miyako while we breathlessly await the reopening… I now have a license to sell take-out liquor!

This will start after I reopen, but I’ll be selling small hip flasks which you can use to take home shots of your choice from the bar!

Maybe one thing to consider if you’re still telecommuting and want some variety in your evening tipple?

Also, I was literally in tears after seeing so much support come in through the “sakimeshi” advance ticket program. So, I have decided to give away flasks to everyone who has bought tickets as of May 29, and to everyone who buys tickets of more than 10,000 yen going forward (with no obligation of course to buy alcohol to fill it).

Thank you everyone for your support and I really hope to see you soon!
