GROUP

iKra

In one room of the Auto Rock Apartments, there is a restaurant which promotes Italian cuisine and Japanese sake, with a hideaway atmosphere, based on the concept of "an adult playground". It is a space where modern and antique coexist, choreographed by the producer of this space, Elia Taniguchi, and the lighting designer, Haruki Umifuji. The restaurant has a sense of openness which you wouldn't imagine is a room in an apartment, and you can really feel a sense of "the unusual within the everyday".

Ebisu iKura Shokudo

ikra Shokudo takes pride in its standing-style counter. Designed based on inspiration from Spanish bars, this is an enjoyable place where chatter with the staff and other customers livens up the atmosphere, resulting in an enjoyable experience for meeting new people and communicating with others. It is also ideal as a place to have a drink with friends after work. While its name ("shokudo") uses the Japanese word for canteen, customers can actually enjoy proper Italian-based dishes at a low price here. As for drinks, all wine bottles are also very reasonably priced at 2,500 JPY (tax not included).
