Pop-Up Sake Shop in LB Gastropub

Hi fellow foodies! I hope it’s okay to do a little self-promotion (if not, delete this with my apologies).

I want to get the word out that SAKE SECRET, a bottle shop and tasting room, is now open every Thurs.-Sun. inside Long Beach Beer Lab - a brewery and kosher, vegetarian restaurant and bakery.

This is my passion project born out of the lack of in-person education and unbiased advice when trying to get into Sake. Quite simply - it does everything a wine shop does, but for Japanese Sake

Come say hi, try a glass, split a bottle, or take something home for yourself or as a gift. Get all of your questions about Sake answered, pairing recommendations, and make selections based on a particular Sake or flavors you prefer.

I’m also a certified Sake Sommelier and a regular user here on FTC, so feel free to ask me anything about Sake here, too! I sell the Sake, but the Secrets are free :wink:


Do you carry Fifth Taste’s lineup?

I will be getting a few of my favorites in stock by next week at the latest, but I can special order anything they carry.


What are your hours? My best friend loves sake and I’d love to bring her by.

I think self promotion is fine as long as you’re transparent about it. :slight_smile:

Thanks for letting us know about your shop. What a fascinating combination of businesses…


Thurs day and Sunday (“School nights” as I call them) 3-8:30pm
Friday and Saturday 4-10pm

I would love to help you surprise your friend :smiling_face:


New Sake update: we have 4 labels in from Fifth Taste. More coming that are delayed due to the shipping container backup affecting everything, but I’m very pleased with the selection I have currently!


New Sake Update: I’m just under 50 Sake to choose from, I’ve redesigned the menu and the layout of the space - now with chairs!
