Empire Bar and Izakaya

172 St Asaph St, Christchurch Central, Open Thurs - Sat 7pm - until late

Why we love Empire Bar & Izakaya

Empire Bar & Izakaya adds an Asian touch to the inner city. The interior is spacious and very modern, the lighting creates an interesting moody atmosphere. The food and drinks are Japanese inspired with a modern twist. Plus if you are after some late night bangers this is the spot for you!

Must try 

Take your pick from the Yakitori menu, it will leave you wanting to try more! Our top pick is Buta (pork belly with sweet miso)– it is to die for!

If you are after a cocktail – you cannot go past the flagship cocktail, “Salted caramel Espresso Martini”. Created with in-house infused vanilla belvedere vodka, salted caramel syrup and a double shot of espresso- the perfect cocktail to get the night started.
