Sakénoma is a seasonal saké bar and modern day stage coach stop, located in BRC NV. It appears like a mirage in late August and then fades away without a trace. We serve cold saké during the hottest part of the day and close at night. The refreshment we provide has helped to establish Sakénoma as the premiere Saké bar on the playa. The slight acidity of the saké pairs nicely with the alkaline properties of playa dust. Our bar is an oasis of calm in an otherwise chaotic world. The encampment provides shade and liquid refreshments to any playa traveler. Our cascading fountains provide an audible lanscape of tranquility and has been known to transport the open minded to an alpine waterfall. In addition to the obvious health benefits of Sakénoma and its famous cold saké, we also offer advanced eyewear cleaning. We welcome you to visit Sakénoma, leave refreshed and see the world more clearly.
