Nightlife in Kobe

Kobe Travel Guide

Nightlife in Kobe may be outshined by the glitzier scenes of its close neighbour, Osaka. However, you can find good spots for sipping great sake and Japanese beer, as well as spending a good evening out with live music.

Downtown Kobe is a great go-to for bar-hopping. Browsing the streets of the Sannomiya district is a good bet, with a selection of jazz hotspots, Irish pubs, sports bars, and izakayas to choose from, where you can also enjoy a good meal.
