Kanpai (cheers) to UK’s 1st sake brewery for giving Sushi Girls a big helping hand


Kanpai, which means cheers, is also the name of the UK’s first sake brewery in the UK. Co-founders Lucy and Tom Wilson have supplied us with enough sake on our opening night (Thursday, July 25, 7pm) to provide 50 free shots of sake to our first arrivals.
