The Silver Lining in Umeda, Osaka

The Silver Lining Bottom Line The Silver Lining is a great bar to go to for friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. It’s a little off the beaten path in Umeda, but well worth the walk, especially if you’re hungry. While the bar doesn’t have a huge beer selection, what they do have is always good quality.

Beer Stand Molto in Umeda, Osaka

Beer Stand Molto The Bottom Line Beer Stand Molto is a standing bar in the center of Umeda with a great selection of drinks.

Oonoya in Shinmachi, Osaka

Oonoya Front

Oonoya The Bottom Line Oonoya combines two of my loves – grilled meat on sticks, aka yakitori, and craft beer but it’s hard to recommend Oonoya – the smokey atmosphere and slow service meant our time there was less than enjoyable. It’s a shame as the atmosphere was fun and jovial with groups of people laughing and joking together. The place …
