About request an edit to this page

Situated in the heart of Temple Nightclub in San Francisco, KI is a modern take on a tried-and-true Japanese establishment: the venerable izakaya. In these times of climate change, resource scarcity, and consumer confusion, we must reconsider our behavior and question old paradigms. Ki is the izakaya for the 21st Century: comfortable yet chic, delicious yet sustainable and unafraid to challenge the status quo. Through innovation, creativity and the betterment of the planet, KI is the world’s first izakaya that is designed to be conscious of a greater purpose.

Ki offers San Francisco residents an opportunity to experience a modern, educated interpretation of classic Japanese fare. Sushi, yakitori, and other classic izakaya dishes are reinvented through the lenses of sustainability and local/seasonal awareness, bringing the allure and delicacy of this popular cuisine to the SOMA community while offering a eco-sensitive experience.
