An Izakaya is a Japanese style bar, that mainly differs from a Dutch/Western pub with the larger selection of foods on offer.

Relax with your friends with a Japanese beer, sake or whisky but of course also with non-alcoholic drinks, combined with a wide variety of Japanese snacks, finger foods and mini-meals.

We hope to make the Izakaya a fixed part of our convention from now on. We are already preparing to decorate the room in Japanese style and we expect to extend both the decoration and the range of products on offer in the coming years.

The Izakaya will be in the Oceania Foyer (next to the MangaKissa for those who know our location). This large room will has plenty of space to hang out with your friends while making sure you have enough energy to survive the festival.


Not required.


The usual rules apply. We do not serve alcohol to minors.
