Niseko Half Note is famous for its live beats and fun atmosphere, setting the music venue standards in Hirafu. We recommend heading along to the Thursday open mic night or Sunday pub quiz and roast dinner for some guaranteed good times.  The hearty pub food, drink specials and AllPress coffees make this a local bar and café not to be missed!

Toshiro's Bar

Toshiro's Bar

Japanese hospitality is at its best with Toshiro’s Bar. Be guided by knowledgeable staff on their extensive range of world class whiskies for a tipple to enjoy. Carefully curated and classic cocktails also make this an excellent evening choice. Toshiro’s Bar is a go-to for a classy yet comfortable setting where you really feel like you’re in Japan.

Mick’s Niseko

Micks Bar

For the ultimate cosy wine bar on a snowy night, Mick’s Niseko has got you covered. With an exceptional range of wines on offer, you can easily spend hours in conversation here. We tried the mulled wine and it was a warming treat after a day on the slopes. The cheese and charcuterie selection with delicacies from across Hokkaido is also well worth sampling. 

Niseko Taproom


Niseko Taproom is your craft beer bar and rotisserie in the heart of Hirafu. You can’t go wrong with their local Hokkaido ales along with local sakes & Japanese whisky. Line your stomach with their delicious poutine and pub food options and you’re set for an enjoyable evening out!
