Probably only second to Popeye in the 10 or so highly rated craft bars I have visited in Tokyo. Cool place; hard to describe; polished upmarket dive bar (am I being unfair?). 16 taps and at last half local. Serious devotion to bourbon and whiskey is a nice touch. Wonderfully warm service and very very comfortable drinking. Solid pizza. Local craft 800 to 1000 yen for a 350ml pour.
Hard to find, but well worth the effort! Nice selection of American and local craft brews on tap. They had 8 different Hair of the Dog bottles on the menu which is really impressive (although very expensive). Friendly staff, quite decent prices (it's Tokyo after all).
Added bonus: very nice selection of local whisky, combined with bourbon from US. So if that's something that interests you, check this place out.
A very nice bar modeled on what I might call a ’contemporary American-style craft beer bar’. The place itself is neat and attractive, with a nice bar to sit at along with a bunch of tables. The beer selection here is good for Japanese beers, but not incredible. They do have a pretty impressive selection of American beers on tap and in bottle or can. They also boast a comprehensive array of American bourbon. Prices are about average for Tokyo. Friendly and effective staff who can communicate in English. Nice-looking food menu; we had some basic nibbles. Overall, this is a very nice bar. If I was a local in search of American beer (or bourbon), this place would be a mainstay; as a tourist seeking out Japanese micros, this place was a little less compelling, though still very good.
One of the best beer bars I saw in Tokyo. Basement, sort of hard to find. They have a decent selection of Japanese beers, but their strengths are international. Have some nice whiskeys on hand as well. Visited with Sam and Janet in 2017.
Visited in the evening, place was rather crowded. If Tim wasn’t saving a place for us we’d probably have to wait for a seat. Food was good. During our visit they had Pipeworks and Half Acre sort of takeover. Some really nice beers. Good Japanese beers as well. Prices on the high side. Had a really nice evening with Tim and rest of the guys. One of top places in Tokyo.
You get what you pay for. I really enjoyed getting to try some very hard to find brews, basically impossible to get in Japan outside of this bar. The food was good. Service was fair, but not exactly friendly or welcoming. Bar was very dark and not easy to find. Dark Lord bro!
After hearing so much about the craft beer scene in Japan I was so stoked to check this place out. Menu was ok, but more than half was out of stock. Beers on tap were 7/10 at best. Didn’t live up to the hype and service was just typical restaurant bar service, nothing special. Sat at the bar for 3 round with food and didn’t get more than a hi from the staff aside from my ordering.
