One80 Izakaya

Located in Ghajnsielem, Gozo, “one80 Izakaya” is KEIRO’s homage to Japanese authenticity and sustainable innovation. Our journey began by embracing the client’s vision for a high-end izakaya outlet, coupled with a commitment to eco-friendly practices. Meticulously selected materials, such as wood and stone, strike a delicate balance between Japanese aesthetics and durability. Beyond design, this sustainability extends to the outlet’s transformation of a vacant garage into a vibrant community space.

Collaboration with local artisans and craftsmen was pivotal, ensuring that each design element not only celebrated Japanese hospitality but also showcased the richness of local talent. The result is a harmonious blend, seamlessly transporting patrons to the heart of Japan. “one80 Izakaya” is more than an outlet; it’s a living narrative of culture, innovation, and community enhancement. Every detail, from the carefully chosen materials to the collaborative craftsmanship, weaves together tradition and modernity, creating an immersive experience that resonates with both authenticity and sustainability.
