Yes, the front door is from an old refrigerator that was dropped off 20 plus years ago when the bar opened...and you stoop to get in. They open at 5PM and the crowd packs in quickly. By 5:30 the downstairs is full and people coming...later go upstairs to another bar area with great view of the snow!! They offer light snacks and all kinds of drinks, wine, sake and especially whiskey...which you can get flights of to taste. It is a really cool place with a great vibe where everyone sits at very small tables and close together. It reminds me of what a speakeasy might have been like. There is great jazz music playing, loud enough so you don’t hear the folks at the next table. If in the Niseko area, it’s must place to stop!More
Love this place and make sure you visit when going to Niseko. We had the apple pie cocktails and they are truly delicious, I also tried the sake tasting set and that was good.
Friendly bar, great location and surroundings and of course the fridge...door to get in! Truly uniqueMore
Its name translates as fridge bar, a hole-in-the-wall bars that japan is famous for. This one is located in lower Hirofu, Niseko, its entrance marked by a vintage refrigerator door. You have to crouch to fit into the tiny entrance to enter the dimly-lit speakeasy...on the other side. Full range of whisky offered including of -course, Hokkaido’s Yoichi brand along with plenty of martini’s and hot cocktails if that’s what warms your cockles.More
