COCKTAIL OMAKASE MENU
Roka Bar introduces curated cocktail flights inspired by Japanese tradition, beginning July 7
Roka Akor San Francisco launches a limited-seating “cocktail omakase” experience in the downstairs lounge at Roka Bar. Inspired by Roka Akor’s signature omakase tasting menu, Roka Bar introduces their first cocktail omakase, a Japanese term meaning “I’ll leave it up to you”, on Thursday, July 7, at 7:30 p.m.
Available Thursday through Saturday evenings, Roka Bar’s 90-minute cocktail omakase will begin with a bartender explaining both the tradition of omakase as well as the theme of the evening. The first theme will highlight the five traditional elements in Japanese philosophy: Earth; Water; Fire; Wind; and Void. From there, the omakase flight will be interactive and tailored to guest preferences. Each omakase will feature five to seven alcoholic drinks varying in size and served in specialty glassware, incorporating local spirits and seasonal ingredients whenever possible, with a Chinese style tea service served halfway through the tasting.
