Together they discovered the secret of Sake… “If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong!”
Austin follows a simple philosophy, “If I can see you, aren’t we already friends?!”
Austin studied Sake under the guidance of his Sake Mama Satsko Watanabe (Sake Bar Satsko) for ten years, while also studying many styles of beverage. Sake is still his favorite. He worked with Ariel Arce at Tokyo Record Bar, Niche Niche, Special Club and Airs Champagne - crafting signature speeches to ignite passion for Sake.
After 12 years in the Sake industry, Power opened his “Accidental Bar” (98 avenue C – East Village – NYC) on June 10th, 2021. A true Covid miracle!
Accidental Bar hopes to help more people drink more Sake more irresponsibly! Come for the party, leave a little smarter. And hey… Even if you don’t like it, at least you learned something (and you’re still a little tipsy).
