If I was leaving in Tokyo I would probably go there every day! The bar is the right size and very well presented. This is for Baird beers to obviously you wonít expect to drink other beers. Food is great too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect too. You must go there when in Tokyo!

Bairdís is one of my favorite brew-haunts in Tokyo.
The place itself is small but nice. It has a smooth, traditional izakaya style wood-paneled bar. All the seats and tables are also made out of richly colored wood. It looks pretty slick.
The service is great. The bartender is good at both Japanese and English. He is extremely knowledgeable about beer and all around seems like a nice guy. Food gets to your spot promptly, and good recommendations are offered when requested.
The selection is great. Anywhere from 12-17 beers are available on tap, with 2 on the hand pump.
The food is traditional izakaya fare, with most items costing about 500Y (6 bucks in todays market). Everything Iíve had has been tasty.
All in all, the pints are a bit pricey (1000Y). However, you donít get that much microbrew in Tokyo and the food is cheap. Iíll support them without a second thought.

Nice intimate place at the end of an alley, just 5 min from Harajuku station. Nombei card gets you 12 pints for the price of ten, so good if you are a local or with a group. Good selection of excellent Baird beer. Food menu is limited but what we had was pretty tasty.

We visited this Baird tap room on 1st of March 2015. They have 15 taps with Baird beer, 1 guest beer (Green Tea IPA from Stones = very good!!!) and one hand pump. All beers very well tapped and great temperature. Nice bar, good atmosphere, friendly service and beers are quite good especially the IPAís.

Cool place in a awesome suburb. I love Harajuku. The Harajuku ale, I loved it Edamame was nice, not the way we serve it over here, but when in Japan..
Cool place, a good respite from the madness of the streets.

Really nice place. Decor is all wood with a few tables and lots of bench seating. Atmosphere was good when it was busy and also when it was quieter. Service was great and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Food great too, and plenty of stuff for veggies. They had 15 kegs and 2 cask going when we visited, naturally all Baird. If you are going to have a few ask for the nonbei card and you will get 12 for the price of 10. We spent a fortune here, but the prices are not excessively higher than other places. Just couldnít stop eating and drinking. Will definitely be going back.

Rather pleasant little bar, friendly staff, huge range of exclusively (I think) Baird beers, tasty bar snacks. Iíd come back. Iíd have given the selection higher marks but on the evidence of todayís selection you kind of need to like pale ales and not too distant cousins.

Waded through the crowds of teenagers on the main street in Harajuku to get here Sunday afternoon. Close to Harajuku Station and Yoyogi Park. Bar on the second floor of the building, a little confusing finding the stairs on a first visit. Weird snaky shaped bar that kind of reminded me of Argilla Brewing in Delaware.
Nice selelction of Bairdís regular beers on the main menu, all which Iíd seen at Bashimichi the other night. Also a handful of seasonals that were different and their location exclusive beer on hand pump. A few guest beers too. 1000 yen sampler set with any 3 Baird beers in 140 ml glasses.
Food was good, mostly Japanese style food. Had the wasabi potato salad and assorted yakitori. Yakitori was good though included chicken livers and tsukune (chicken meatballs with bits of cartilage) so you might want to ask before ordering that if youíre not into off-parts.
Friendly service and not too busy on a Sunday afternoon. Self-serve water available near the bar. Worth a stop if in the area, especially if sightseeing Yoyogi Park or Meiji Jingu.

Was there for pre-opening night, so need to come back on a regular night to get a better feel and will change rating at that time. In comparison with the Nakameguro Taproom, it is cozier, darker and more comfortable with not as many taps. The focus here is also on Yakitori (skewered meat) and on traditional Japanese food. No Western food is available as far as I know. 15 taps and two handpumps. From Harajuku station, take the Takeshita Dori exit. Walk down Takeshita Dori and hang the first left past MacDonalds. Walk down the street to the very end and it is on the right side of the street on the 2nd floor. Update: Went back, but didnít try the food. What I didnít realize the first time is the acoustics are really bad. Even when only half full it is really loud and you can hear conversations across the room
