Pajero is an art bar serving local Ishikawa sakes and beer that shows off a different side of the Kanazawa art scene. Along with great drinks, the bar makes you feel like you’re in some crazy novel, looking at Japanese tattoo books, drinking local sake, debating whether or not to try the absinthe. The first floor has the bar and small galleries where rotating exhibitions of mostly local, sometimes nationwide and international, artists display their work. The second floor is a tattoo parlor doing traditional Japanese tattoos. FYI, Kanazawa and Ishikawa prefecture are widely known for ceramics, lacquerware, kimonos, and a kind of refined art scene. Pajero puts on display the graffiti, the tattoos, the gritty, yet extremely talented, side of art in Kanazawa. In the grips of the Shintenchi drinking district, Pajero is not to be missed.
