Just opened, so this may change, but it is hard to be excited about this place. It was a fun atmosphere on the first day, albeit a lot like a food court in a mall. The best things they have going for them are 1. Great location and 2. Large selection, especially of beers you cannot find elsewhere in the area. Of 19 taps, 12 I had never had before, and dozens of bottles of stuff I had never seen. There are just two drawbacks, though these are huge. First, the pricing is ridiculous. Prices for the Czech beers are competitive, but thatís all. I know they are paying huge rents in this brand new top-end building in Osaka, but pints are •300 higher than elsewhere and bottles at the bottle shop are bar prices: •900 for an Orval! Prices for food are similarly much higher than you pay at any similar bar, though this is all industrial frozen food. The second problem is condition. We tried 7 draught beers, and at least 3 were not in top condition. They import themselves, and we all guessed it was not refrigerated, which means the whole thing is a waste of time. Iíll go back, as there are several more beers I want to try, but if they want to survive after the hype wears away they will need to lower prices. This is not the Skytree. Ok, maybe Iím wrong. Businessmen who just want to be seen drinking German beers or want a fake "International" beer experience will continue to come here and be ripped off, while beer lovers will come for their required ticks and then go give their money to some place that actually cares about beer.

I went there on opening day and this place is HUGE! They say they have seating for 700 people and 6 bars (American, Czech, Belgian, German, British & Asian) with most being in their own architectural style. They also have a small "Beer Market" with bottles available for take-away. There is currently a 3 bottle set for 1500 yen of 2 Czech beers with special labels for the Grand Front Buildings grand opening and also 1 German beer. There is tons of staff who are young, friendly & helpful but donít seem to really know beer or anything. They have 200 bottles most in the 800-1200 yen range though some of the bigger ones will hit 2000 yen! The selection is truly huge and does represent the globe but most arenít really rare or anything. Several beers are new to Kansai though, like Pike Brewingís beers from the US. The food was great pub grub from around the world. I had a Czech meal: Branborak potato pancake 780 yen & a Merlin Cerny Schwarzbier plus a small plate of fries 500 yen. Good food but small portions. Overall, this is a good place for World Beers & beertickers will love it but prices are a higher than average. Drafts are from 650 yen for 300 ml(Czech beers 3 taps), 750 yen (UK 3 taps, 800 yen 280ml, 1380 yen 470ml (US 5 taps), 8-900 yen (Belgium 7 taps), 750-900yen (Germany 3 taps) & Asia (2 taps). So about 20 to 25 taps, 50 bottles for takeaway and 200 bottles available to order in. Itís non smoking and open for lunch & in the afternoon so I can see myself dropping by again sometime. Oh they also have a 4500 yen 5 beers + food daily deal with the dish rotating between countries based on the day of the week(German sausages, American Burger, Fish & Chips, etc). Most of this ratings score comes from the size of the place & selection but not so good for prices & a 10% service charge . It is worth checking out, especially if you are in a big group.
