New Zealand’s first Japanese stand bar or “Tachinomi”, translated literally -drinking while standing up
Standing at a bar for a quick drink on the way home was a way for middle-aged white-collar workers to relieve the stresses of the working day and is part of the Japanese salary man’s culture.
But the custom of drinking while standing is no longer limited to disgruntled businessmen.
More and more trendy bars in Japan and restaurants have been setting up their own standing counters, which have proven
particularly popular among young women.
Tachinomi encourages patrons to get to know their drinking neighbours as there is no fixed seating and is a great place to stop on the way to the theatre, movies or meeting place for friends
