Italian Restaurant

“An unbeatable spot for sophisticated drinks with a view, on the Hilton Osaka's 35th floor. There's a ¥1750 per person table charge (¥1200 for hotel guests) and drinks average ¥2000 each. Popular food menu items include a gourmet plate (¥3300) of smoked salmon, ham, cheese, salami, shrimp and more.”

Bar
“In the warren of tiny bars of the Dōyama-chō, east of Osaka Station, gay men have been coming to this subtly stylish spot since 1993. There's no cover, reasonably priced drinks, and a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike”

Bar
$$
“This popular, dimly lit bar in the Kita-Shinchi district is a short walk from JR Osaka Station and draws a good crowd of expats and Japanese. Among other bar-menu standards, they do a good burger with chunky fries, and you can get a meat pie.”

“In the shadow of the Umeda Sky Building, this bar/bottle shop specialises in local and worldwide craft beers. Order and enjoy around the counter, or climb the narrow stairs to a simple white-walled room. From Osaka or Umeda stations' north exits, take the underground passage toward Umeda Sky Building, and turn left. ”

“When you want to immerse in a little romantic atmosphere, such as anniversary with an important person and Christmas, I recommend "Art restaurant Christian bar". This is a restaurant like "church". There is also an object that shaped the "cathedral" in the shop, and a majestic atmosphere is drifting.”
