I really loved this place, went there three times during my trip in tokyo; bartenders are great, advices are good, food is nice. Baird Beers are awesome... what’s not to love there? I’ll be back for more as soon as possible.
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 won’t 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!
Baird’s 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 I’ve had has been tasty.
All in all, the pints are a bit pricey (1000Y). However, you don’t get that much microbrew in Tokyo and the food is cheap. I’ll 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 IPA’s.
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 couldn’t stop eating and drinking. Will definitely be going back.
Dropped in here on a rainy Sunday night and it was the best place to be. Good food, warm smoke-free atmosphere, excellent service and of course lots of excellent Baird Beers. Worth making a detour for for sure.
Rather pleasant little bar, friendly staff, huge range of exclusively (I think) Baird beers, tasty bar snacks. I’d come back. I’d have given the selection higher marks but on the evidence of today’s 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 Baird’s regular beers on the main menu, all which I’d 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 you’re 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.
