On Wednesday, June 20th and Thursday, June 21st, Yardbird will be hosting the incredible team from Sour bar in Kyoto, Japan for a special 2-day pop-up!

Sour is a small standing bar located in Shinkyogoku, which is part of Kyoto’s downtown shopping area. Behind their bar is a beautiful display of fresh fruit that’s used to make their signature shochu highballs (Chu Hi’s). Every type of Chu Hi on their menu is made using fresh fruit and herbs, including unusual combinations such as lemon mint, banana sudachi, kumquat apple, and more! Sour also holds exhibitions and music events inside the standing bar space.

During both evenings, dinner service at Yardbird will run as usual and the food menu will remain the same. The drinks menu, on the other hand, will feature a special supplement from Sour, including a variety of unique Chu Hi’s made with rice shochu and fresh fruit from both Hong Kong and Japan. Both pop-up events are open to the public – no RSVP is required! The Sour team will be behind the Yardbird bar from 6:00 pm to Midnight both nights creating their delicious signature drinks.
