Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

A Tokyo-inspired lounge where the hi-fi is hot and the whisky's ice cold.

Oakland’s new Tokyo-inspired hi-fi bar is a vinyl-lover’s dream. Records, especially of the jazz variety, are at Bar Shiru’s core, played on an entirely analog sound system in homage to mid-century musical mastery. On the cocktail menu, choose from highballs made from their extensive list of Japanese whisky or drinks of varying A.B.V levels, like the “hi fi” Empyrean Isles made with automatic sea gin, bitter liqueur, vermouth bianco and scotch.
