Celebrate Pride Month with us at Sushi-san River North! Join us for a special Happy Hour and kick back with a unique cocktail crafted by our talented queer lead bartender, Eli Bennett. Created with the renowned Kevin Beary of Three Dots and a Dash, we’re featuring a vibrant twist on the classic blueberry vodka soda, a beloved staple in the LGBTQ bar scene.“My inspiration for the cocktail came from my guilty pleasure (flavored vodka), and from all of the queer people I know who hold a blueberry vodka soda near and dear to their heart. I have loved my 6 years here at Sushi-san River North…not just for the incredible quality of food and beverage, but also for the wonderful queer-friendly environment and community that is fostered here. Sushi San and Lettuce Entertain You have supported and invested in me every step of my career.” Enjoy our signature sushi, groove to hip hop beats, and raise a glass to love and diversity. Happy Hour has never been so colorful and delicious!

Our private-label impression, brought to life by the talented team at Daimon Brewery in Osaka, Japan. Our own sake sommelier, Daniel Bennett, traveled to japan to inform the production.

“I set out to craft Chicago’s jizake, searching for a gateway sake that represents japan and Chicago all in one brew and would excite seasoned sake drinkers and newcomers alike.” – Daniel Bennett

The connections to our sister city are reflected in the label, designed by Alex Payne, with a bridge connecting the skylines of Osaka, Japan to Chicago. As Osaka is the “food capital” of Japan, this sake was brewed specifically to pair with the bold flavors that paint our own city’s culinary landscape.

An award-winning regional brewery, Daimon Shuzo has crafted a sake that is approachable, bright, crisp and food-friendly.

Sake-san is available for purchase by the bottle at Sushi-san.
