Course:Yokohama’s Cocktails

about the course

A port town Yokohama; through many ships coming and going, cocktails suited to this town were born.
We have selected two bars that offer cocktails born here in Yokohama.
Each of the cocktails have a flavour that reminds you of different faces this city has.
Each jazz bar has its own style.
Yokohama cocktails taste a bit different. Which is good. Maybe the cocktails are the same, and each bar has its own flavouring?
Both bars are worth going to!

1.Motomoachi-Chukagai Station, Minatomirai Line Exit 2

Your journey starts here at Motomachi-Chukagai Station.
We’ll take you on a journey to search for a new aspect of Yokohama!
〒231-0023 Yamashita-cho, Naka-ku, Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa-ken
・Minatomirai Line



A well-established bar since 1972.
Indulge yourself in a mature vibe of the bar where you can enjoy live jazz every night.

This is my second time here. While I was teaching a bit at a university, I had a guy join me and had him talk with me.
One of his legs is missing from below the knee. Well, well, he plays the double bass really well.
The bar is designed like the hull of a ship cut apart. There’s a gap both outside and inside the bar, but you’d better go there.

3.Bar Sea GuardianⅡ

A received bar with a stately tone. This bar has three cocktails born in Yokohama.
‘Yokohama’, that’s like the sunset you can see from the port. ‘Million Dollars’, in which you can feel sweetness inside the bitter flavour. ‘Bamboo’, with a cool mature flavour.
Enjoy quiet mature time in the dignified venue.
I’d love to try going in from the first floor of the Old Building of Hotel New Grand, but, well, I went in from the New Building again today.
I asked to go to one of their bars, and they guided me to Bar Sea Guardian Ⅱ.
I got to get a seat at the right position to see the courtyard.
The waiter dressed in his tuxedo told me about Yokohama cocktails, turning page after page of an old book.
I wonder what the girl I was seeing back when I was 16 riding 750 cc is doing . Well, well, they all taste great!
