Otaku Ramen

Nashville, TN

Located in the evolving area of “the gulch” near downtown Nashville, Otaku Ramen blends inspiration from the neon signage of Nashville to street noodle carts in Tokyo together in a space which encourages connection on an intimate scale. Wabi-Sabi textures intersperse with a graphic novel inspired color palette. Subtle divisions and movement have been created throughout the space inspired by manga line drawings and the attention to detail in Japanese cooking. The whiskey bar is a refined take on our favorite tiny hidden alley bars in Kyoto,  filled with oddities and texture worn over time.
