Japonessa features a Japanese core concept menu with hints of Latino flair. Featuring an impressive selection of sakes, wines, and finely crafted cocktails, as well as the city's most extensive Happy Hour, we are the downtown destination for some of the best sushi Seattle has to offer!
Our happy hour runs from open until 6:30pm in the whole restaurant, continues in the bar, patio, and lounge until 8pm, and then from 10pm until close in the entire restaurant again
