Martini party tops fun list next Friday

Date Posted: 2007-04-14

The martinis are shaken, not stirred, in the quiet ambience of the Motown Philly Soul Bar.

The Ginowan watering hole is shaking things up next weekend with a Martini and Cosmopolitan Party. The ¥3,000 entry fee for men includes a food buffet. Ladies pay ¥2,000 to join the fun from 8pm~6am. The April 21st party features a special menu cooked up by owner Charlie Wilder, and includes spicy—but not overbearing—jerk chicken, shrimp, four different types fried rice, hot wings and more.

Motown Philly Soul Bar isn’t your run of the mill noisy night spot. Instead, it’s a quiet, easy-going ‘over 30’s’ bar filled with a soft atmosphere and comfortable sofas. Music runs the gamut from night to night, including reggae, jazz or rhythm and blues. Wilder, an Air Force retiree from west Philadelphia who opted to make Okinawa home, calls himself “a generous guy” who likes to make people happy, and to throw an occasional party.

Wilder’s kitchen dotes on its Caribbean foods. “Most everyone who comes here says they heard about the food,” he smiles as he talks about his different rice dishes being “the best on the island.” All recipes are his own originals, and he cooks exclusively with olive oil to ensure good tastes. Chicken dishes are his true passion, he says, as he talks about the fried chicken, chicken and shrimp salad, and of course, the jerk chicken.

Motown Philly Soul Bar is closed only on Tuesdays, and is available for private parties and MOAI parties. Reservations are available in English at (098) 897-644, or Japanese (090) 6639-5526.
The bar-restaurant is located in Ginowan, just off Highway 58, on the fourth floor of the Hana Building, across the road from the Okinawa Actor School and the Pepsi building.
