Great drinks, but there is limited seating. Definitely a place that's a local hideout. Great staff, great drinks.
I been to both sushi dokku and booze a handful of times and I love them both! The street food style menu and the creative cocktails are so good! Booze box has a great speakeasy like vibe, with its music and lighting! Great place to stop by after dinner or even for after work drinks and apps!
My goto spot when guest come to town. Got the right amount of everything. Diverse, energy, atmospheric, mojo for real celebs to regulars. Any body could be anybody. Also neither here nor there, but it has a futuristic quality to it. Like it could be a cut scene from Blade Runner. Really the place is cool.
Overall; enjoyable to locate, great drinks, good food and nice staff.
Feels like a true Japanese bar. Drinks are so delicious. Gets crowded on busy nights.
Great ambiance; great drinks. TRY THE CALAMARI!!
Great cocktails good atmosphere food was acceptable.
Nice cocktail bar. In the alley behind Sushi Dokku, but it had the full Sushi Dokku dinner menu. Went on a Friday around 7:00 and didn't need to wait long for a seat at the bar. It filled up a little more, but wasn't overly crowded. Food was delicious and there was a nice selection of sake and cocktails. I'll likely be back to try a few more things that caught my eye on the menu.
Have loved Booze Box simce first coming here several years ago. Has becone a go to spot for my wife and me. The staff is amazing and the food and drinks make it memorable every time we stop by!
Super fun bar to grab drinks and do a fun date night. We will definitely be back
Interesting if you like underground life. Cool atmosphere. Dark but pretty good decor. Nice staff. The drinks were ok but not my faves. Seems like they aim at bitters a bit but with Sushi which you can order, this is probably fine. We just had the booze. I would go again. Would be fun with mixed company. Unique.
Booze Box is a cool speakeasy sushi restaurant with appetising food to offer. Once you enter this establishment - located in the basement of Sushi Dokku - you'll notice a cosy, dimly lit setting. Maybe a bit too dim, as it's hard to tell what's on your plate from time to time. A rectangular bar is the centerpiece of this lively restaurant, with small booths surrounding it that allow you to dine in a semi-private setting. Whether ordering sashimi or regular rolls, the restaurant does a great job at pairing flavours. Even the drinks are creative and taste delicious (try ordering the Bourbon basil cocktail). You can also order chef's specials that are off-menu and tailored to your taste. Unfortunately, when trying this out the special wasn't made yet by the time we finished our other food - so make sure it's all registered on the same order.
Yummy sushi at Dokku...landed at Booze box and stayed till we got kicked out. Good crowd, good DJ!
The entrance is very fun and novel. There's a neon red arrow in an alley that leads to a flight of stairs that you climb down to reach the front door. The drinks are crafted with an asian fusion featuring ingredients like lychee, sake, lemon grass, yuzu, etc. We ordered the lychee club, pear up, and the japanese manhattan. The prior 2 being very sweet and smooth drinks (I'd recommend if you're not a strong drinker). The place is noisy, crowded but the bartenders get your orders and get you your drinks at a fairly quick rate compared to how busy it gets. It is also pricey so keep in mind that 3 house specialty drinks will easily reach over $40
Secluded low key spot, real good atmosphere and really good drinks. The Spicy was on point!
