OSAKA – British bars are ubiquitous in Kansai, but a genuine Irish establishment should follow these “Ten Commandments”:
Don’t put a Union Jack on the front door. Or behind the door, above the bar, on the ceiling or anywhere near a pint of Guinness. I’m not against the flag, it looks great on the Spice Girls or in The Tavern. But just as you wouldn’t shove a schnitzel on the menu at a vegan restaurant, so too should you scrub the Union Jack from your Irish pub. If you’re still confused, check a map.
