THE BACK ROOM
A Japanese American Izakaya serving beer, sake, yakatori and Japanese soul food.
Due to the current public health issues, we are closed until further notice.
An izakaya (居酒屋) (Japanese: [izakaja]) is
a type of informal Japanese pub. A casual place for after-work drinking and eating.
Bar Otaku, a Japanese American izakaya, is vibrant gathering place. A lively space to unwind with friends after a long day of work, for respite, congregation, and revelry.
Our diverse menu offers approachable prices, emphasizing that all are welcome whether looking for a post-work round of drinks, weeknight dinner with friends, or place to end a night out. The relaxed and inviting atmosphere reflects Chef Sarah Gavigan’s cherished memories frequenting izakayas during her almost two decades of living in Los Angeles. She brings that experience to Nashville, inspiring a sense of community with welcoming, nurturing dishes and drinks.
