Enjoy a Drink Without Breaking The Bank! 5 Restaurants in The Umeda Area That Have Happy Hour

Don't you want to relax and enjoy a nice drink after a long day of traveling around Osaka? For those times, you might want to visit a bar or pub during happy hour! Sometimes in the day time on weekdays, when there are not too many customers, you can order some alcohol at a discounted price. Perfect for tourists!

1. Tajimaya Whity Umeda Branch

This bar is located in the underground shopping mall Whity Umeda. It's run by the high-class barbecue chain Tajimaya, so they're proud of its meat cuisine. During happy hour, you are only charged a very reasonable 280 JPY for a glass of beer, which is why this place can get crowded even early in the day. Try the house specialty, the 200g Wagyu Beef Hamburg Steak (980 JPY, excl. tax), which is made with Japanese black beef. The tenderness and juiciness of this Salisburysteak makes it a very popular item on the menu. For meat lovers, try the savory Aging Beef menu, in which the beef used is carefully selected and aged at a controlled temperature in order to maintain its quality.

Happy Hour Weekdays 11:30 am - 5:00 pm

BANDA is one of the most popular Spanish bars in Osaka. Besides counter and table seats on the first floor, there are also private rooms on the second floor, where you can enjoy your drink in a joyous atmosphere that you would not be able to get anywhere else other than a bar. During happy hour, you can get drinks such as beer, cocktails, or a glass of wine for a mere 300 JPY. There is also a counter in the outdoor area, and you can still enjoy your drink, albeit standing, when the indoor area is full. Try this place if you feel like having a drink in the early evening.

3. Wolfgang's Steak House Osaka

Wolfgang's Steak House is popular even in overseas locations such as New York and Waikiki. The beef used in their cuisine is aged in a room where the temperature, humidity, and wind conditions are strictly controlled, and as such has earned them a reputation of being a place that serves beef of only the finest quality. It's great for meat lovers with a big appetite. Besides steak, Wolfgang's Steak House also has an extensive side menu to choose from.
During happy hour from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm, you can enjoy an assortment of martinis, special cocktails, or a glass of wine for 700 JPY, beer for 500 JPY, and steak and other sides for a discounted price. While the contents of the menu may vary, there is also a late night happy hour at Wolfgang's.
