Nightlife in Kochi

Kochi, the birthplace of Sakamoto Ryoma, and the capital of the former Tosa Region, is not the place one would usually think of as a party city. But if you are fortunate enough to make it to this charming city while on a visit to Japan, we urge you to leave the comfort of your hotel room and head out into the night. The city will slowly reveal its party face and will show you a really fun night out.

    Foodie or not, a night out in Kochi City should start out with a local treat. In this coastal city that means treating yourself to Katsuo-no-tataki, a version of bonito or skipjack tuna grilled over flames and served seared on the outside but raw on the inside. One of the best local restaurants serving this delicacy is Suigei Tei. The vibe here is very traditional and cozy, and although you might be intimidated by the Japanese signs on the wall, there is an English menu available and some of the staff are more than happy to try out their English skills to help you order the right dish.

    If you cannot get your night going without satisfying your beer cravings first, then head over to Irish Pub Amontillado. For serious beer drinkers, this is the go-to pub in Kochi City and if you happen to be in town during the St. Patrick’s Day’s festivities, this is the party hub. They offer a list of 11 different brews between foreign and domestic brands and a decent variety of western pub food.

    Hirome Market

    For those who prefer to hang out with a larger crowd while having a wider range of food and drink options to choose from, then we recommend making your way down the Hirome Market near Kochi Castle. More than a market, Hirome is a food court bustling with the energy of both locals and tourists looking to try out one many food stalls serving Katsuo-no-Tataki, chicken wings, gyoza, and even a small market selling appetizers and other treats for customers to sort of create their own “bento boxes”. Whatever you decide to try at Hirome Market, we’re certain you’ll have a lively time and, if you’re open to it, a good chance to connect with the locals.

    When on the hunt for that tiny and unique jazz/whiskey bar, that you got to experience in Tokyo’s Golden Gai or the back streets of Kyoto, Kochi too has an ace up its sleeve. Bar Francois is an old-style bar in the Otesuji District where cocktail-making is taken seriously and good conversation can be enjoyed over a classic whiskey on the rocks or a more adventurous concoction. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time in this hidden gem.

    When going deeper into the city’s nightlife is your thing, then 55 Ryoma Dori awaits nestled in the old buildings of the Otesuji District. You can say this is Kochi’s Yokocho alley although without the open-concept yakitori shops. Nevertheless, bars in this little strip like the unique and colorful Gold by ParaっP, which is filled with endless anime figurines and the lively character of its owner, are worthy of at least a stroll during your night out. If you make it past the big G at the front door, a 3,000 yen all-you-can-drink menu awaits, and mostly a very interesting time.

    En Tako

    By the sign on the front, it would seem as if you would be entering a takoyaki bar, but once you are greeted by the super friendly staff and settled at your table, you will realize you’re in for way more than advertised. En Tako is in our opinion one of the best bars in Kochi City, especially for those who love to round out their nights in Japan with good-old karaoke. The takoyaki is actually pretty tasty so the bar lives up to its name, but things get even better after a few songs on the mic and a few shots of Jagermeister downed.
