Sawtelle Sake working on space at 1836 Sawtelle
By Dolores Quintana
Troy Nakamatsu, the owner, has applied for permits and they are working on the construction of the space as of May 5. Their website states “At our core, we wanted to share the intention behind enjoying sake with close friends and family. For us, drinking sake is about appreciating those special connections. We celebrate this sentiment by bringing you a sake for every occasion. Cheers to good health, good company, and good luck from Los Angeles.” According to What Now Los Angeles, hours will run from 2:00 p,m. to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
Until the new tasting room opens, the exact date is still unknown pending approval from the city, you can book a private tasting experience at The Koji Room or order their craft sake, Clear Skies, or their handcrafted Yangban Makgeolli collaboration with the Yangban Society through authorized retailers here.
