A large stone wall, steel lines, ceiling-to-floor windows and attractive lantern lighting draw one's attention to Dozo's sign, written in bold red on black. "Dozo" in Japanese means "please" or "welcome", as Dozo welcomes you through their thick carved wooden doors. With a seven-meter-high ceiling and 250-ping space, its grandeur sets it apart from traditional izakayas. Cherry blossom trees, lanterns, wood and steel partitions and stone walls gives it a neo-oriental atmosphere. There is an open area, semi private boxes, a bar area and VIP rooms on the second floor. In the open area, there are eight very popular sunken seating areas, where one can observe the street from a different angle.The cuisine is prepared by Japanese master chef Takashi Nozaki and Miss Nylon Woo, who has worked many years at 5-star hotels. This interesting juxtaposition of strength and softness is like the strength of Japanese tradition, intertwined with creativity. Dozo mainly plays traditional Ryukyu music, while resident DJs play a variety of music every evening from 9:30 p.m. onwards.
