Damian is a modern take on the traditional Japanese “Snack” bar. Thinking of a “Snack” conjures up images of a small, cozy space that offers bite-sized servings of soul-food to go with your drink of choice – of course, always served by a charming, old-soul “Mama-san” from across the bar.
Our “Snack” blends the cozy atmosphere of the classic Japanese watering-hole with the progressive, artsy vibes that has made Shimo-Kitazawa a boho mecca in Tokyo. Serving natural wines from around the world and offering an appetizing menu of petite pairings , Damian is a place to kick back, shoot the breeze with a “Mama-san” bartender, and savour some new flavours.
We pride ourselves in carrying a selection of natural wines from all over the world. Be it organic, sulfite-free, or preservative-free, we meticulously hand pick wines that are nourishing for both the body and soul.
Don't be fooled by the word “snack”. Our little bites are about as far away from a candy bar as can be! Selections of high quality cheeses, homemade marinated oysters, and other savoury appetizers fill our small but lovingly prepared menu. Be sure not to miss out on trying the quintessential Japanese finishing dish, “Ochazuke” - a bowl of green tea over rice.
