Opened in 2012, Kanpai has brought Japanese fusion cuisine to succulent levels and a sushi experience not found anywhere else in Milwaukee. Whether you are stopping in for a quick bite at lunch, partaking in the copious happy hour specials, or enjoying a leisurely evening of cocktails and sushi, we hope that you will find your dining experience to be as exceptional as our menu!. The Brewers are playing ball at Miller Park, and construction is in full swing… this could only mean one thing: Spring in Milwaukee!. Taste our latest special of the season, our Spring Blossom Maki-spicy tuna, snow crab, and avocado, rolled in rice cracker and deep fried to perfection.
Kanpai Izakaya is a contemporary Japanese gastropub in Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward featuring amazingly fresh sushi, innovative specialty rolls, & excellent Asian Fusion small plates in a sleek, stylishly modern setting. For diners looking for a more traditional experience, our private tatami room provides the customary low-to-the-floor tables surrounded by beautiful Japanese murals and closed off by floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. We offer an impressive array of sake, Asian beers, & artisan cocktails, including saketinis - a divine mixture of sake, vodka, & Asian fruit juices.
