Three Dots and a Dash Announces ‘Tokyo Last Call’ Pop-Up Series Featuring Katana Kitten, SG Club & More

The Japanese-inspired listening bar pop-up will bring four award-winning bars from around the world to Chicago for the month of April

Three Dots and A Dash, the award-winning tropical cocktail bar from Lettuce Entertain You Restaurants, is excited to announce the launch of Tokyo Last Call, a Japanese-inspired listening bar concept series sponsored by Suntory and -196. In collaboration with four renowned Japanese cocktail bars, Beverage Director Kevin Beary and Bar Manager Scott Kitsmiller aim to transport guests to Japan’s vibrant cocktail scene without having to leave Chicago. 

“Our goal with Tokyo Last Call is to create a fully immersive cocktail experience that transports guests through music, drinks and atmosphere,” says Three Dots and a Dash’s Beverage Director Kevin Beary. “This is a one-of-a-kind chance to taste original creations from Japan’s most world-renowned bar talent in a hyper-curated space.”

The team is partnering with highly acclaimed Japanese bars from the U.S. and Japan – Asia’s 50 Best Bar Trench, the World’s 50 Best Katana Kitten, the World’s 50 Best SG Club, and Bar Goto. The Japanese bars and guest bartenders will collaborate directly with the Three Dots and a Dash bar team, who are known for their expertise and passion for music and playlist creation. To enhance the ambiance of the listening room, music will emanate from a retro jukebox, spinning vinyl 45s carefully curated for an unmatched experience.

The event will feature a menu of six specialty cocktails utilizing spirits from Suntory’s portfolio. A selection of exclusive and rare Japanese whiskeys will also be available for select pours with guided tasting led by the central US Suntory brand ambassador, Davey Jones. Each menu will be inspired by the bar’s most popular offerings rooted in traditional techniques and flavors found in the bustling Japanese bar scene. A selection of limited tastings will also be available. The series schedule is as follows: 

The series will take place at the bottom floor of 51 W Hubbard Street in River North. The bar will be open on Thursday through  Sunday from 5 pm to midnight, with reservations available early in the evening, followed by walk-ins from 9 pm to close. Reservations are available on OpenTable and on the website. For more information, visit and follow us on Instagram at @tokyolastcall.
