This is a great place close to Antenna America and Bay Brewing in the middle of the Miyakobashi strip of tiny snack bars. Its small and standing only but thats part of the charm. El Nubichinom apparently has quite a positive reputation among Japanese beer otakus and after a couple visits I could understand why. The owner is passionate about Japanese craft beer and definitely knows his stuff. It is the one bar in town where you can try a good variety of the best "jibiru" that Japan has to offer.

Oh so tiny. Go, just to see what you can do with a closet. Owner is sporting a Reyn spooner Hawaiian Christmas shirt, shoe is going to get bonus points from me. 6 taps and he speaks English. Nothing thrilling but fun.

Teensy tiny itsy bitsy closet of a pub crammed with memorabilia and beer taps, in an interesting neighborhood of equally small places occupied by professional ladies. Although the place was reserved for a group (hopefully small) about to arrive, the barman gave us a very thorough two second tour and served us a few beer samples. Very much worth seeking out, but timing is everything.

I really like the atmosphere here. I dropped by around 3:30-4PM when heíd just opened so I could get in no worries. Tiny standing bar right along the river, on a sunny day the door was open as were some windows so a nice breeze blew through the place. He has a charging station for phones/ipads/ipods which was nice. 6 taps of craft beer which seem to change often. The ownerís English is great and he seems super friendly. I enjoyed chatting with him. A very cool little place I will definitely check out again in the future.

Really small. Unfortunately not open when we were there, or open and fully booked although no one was there. No problem getting some beer anyway as long as it was to go. Judging from the size of the place to go might be the way to go. Not many beers but what is there is really nice. A special little bar worth a visit.

To give this place itís full name - Una casa de GB GB El Nubichinom! On a street row of tiny hole in the wall bars this place is basically a large closet...tiny, absolutely tiny. 4 beers on tap when I was there. Owner speaks good American English. Decent prices. Odd ball but good as part of the Saguragicho/Bashamichi pub crawl.

Very cool tiny standing bar in a slightly dodgy, but very colourful and interesting area of Yokohama. Inside you can get about 6 or 7 people at a push. Beer list is small but itís all Japanese micros and quality was lovely. Barman is friendly and speaks very good English. This is the kind of place I would go to all the time if I lived here and I wish there was somewhere like it as interesting and cool in London. Little bit hard to find but itís not far from Baird Bashamichi Tap Room.

Tiny standing bar in the shady area of Yokohama. Strange hours. Scenic view of a filthy-looking canal. This place is a trip. The owner is a really nice guy, knows his beers and cheese, and speaks good English to boot. Other customers were friendly and fun while I was there. The selection was a bit of a downer when I went, with 3 fruit beers, but I suppose it is usually a bit better. Owner kind of apologized. Great cheese selection. Got a free sample of some great stilton. Definitely worth a stop.

Not sure if youíll even squeeze 10 poeplein there. Great tiny place wiht interesting laid back grungy vibe. Col owner but crazy name for abar! The nam eis actually a fir bit longer than this but makes little sense. Hours are something like 3-6. Weird, yes. but hen thatís the place. About 4-6 beers on tap. Japanese micros, all good quality. He now has a small 20L cask on a tbale that you serve yourself. This timeis was a UK styled bitter that was dry hopped wiht cscade (?) made by Hitachino Nest that was actually quite nice but was slowly oxidising. Has to be drunk fresh. Worht a stop off as he may have somnething special that would be hard to find eslewhere and anyway itís an interesing, relaxing little place. food is just small snacks like nuts. Yokohamaís answer to Towers, perhaps.
