The Secret Submarine Bar
Back in September, I heard rumblings of a “secret bar” tucked away in the backstreets of Osaka, styled to look like the inside of a Submarine… well I found it!

In fact, this bar is more than just styled – it actually uses parts from a genuine 1930’s sub, plus plenty of extras to give the place a real steampunk vibe. It lies hidden down a back alley in Tanimachi Rokuchome which made it a real challenge to find.

You could spend hours looking at all the detail on the interior walls, with old phones, levers and rocker switches dotted around. There’s also a creepy diving suit in the toilet which watches you pee.

So, if you’re wanting to pretend you’re Captain Nemo or a Big Daddy from Bioshock, this is the bar for you! Drink prices are pretty reasonable(550yen for a bottle of beer), plus there’s no table charge! Being a secret bar I’m not going to post the address, the geotag on this post will get you to Tanimachi Rokuchome, then you’ll have to search – good hunting! :)
