A large stone wall, steel lines, ceiling-to-floor
windows and attractive lantern lighting draw one's attention
to Dozo's sign, written in bold red on black. "Dozo"
in Japanese means "please" or "welcome",
as Dozo welcomes you through their thick carved wooden
doors. With a seven-meter-high ceiling and 250-ping
space, its grandeur sets it apart from traditional izakayas.
Cherry blossom trees, lanterns, wood and steel partitions
and stone walls gives it a neo-oriental atmosphere.
There is an open area, semi private boxes, a bar area
and VIP rooms on the second floor. In the open area,
there are eight very popular sunken seating areas, where
one can observe the street from a different angle.The
cuisine is prepared by Japanese master chef Takashi
Nozaki and Miss Nylon Woo, who has worked many years
at 5-star hotels. This interesting juxtaposition of
strength and softness is like the strength of Japanese
tradition, intertwined with creativity. Dozo mainly
plays traditional Ryukyu music, while resident DJs play
a variety of music every evening from 9:30 p.m. onwards.
