Maekawa Bar – A Traditional Japanese Isakaya


Welcome to Maekawa Bar

Izakaya Japanese Restaurant


Good evening

Traditionally an “Izakaya” is a casual Japanese restaurant serving tapas style small plates of food to share with your drinks in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. Izakayas are very popular with young and old people and a favorite place to meet before heading out on the town or for a late night snack.



Maekawa Bar is one of the only authentic Izakaya style restaurants in the greater Seattle area. We serve a variety of traditional and contemporary Japanese dishes including sashimi, yakitori, ramen, and bento boxes. A lot of our menu items are unique to Maekawa Bar and not served by other Japanese restaurants in the area. And everything we serve is made fresh daily in our own kitchen by our Japanese chefs!

So regardless if you are heading to a Sounders, Seahawks, or Mariners game at one of the nearby stadiums or looking for a snack after seeing a show in downtown Seattle.

We welcome you to enjoy our delicious Izakaya style food with sake, shouchu, cold draft beer or cocktails from our extensive selection.
