Very nice underground bar. Modern and trendy with a huge bar. Self serve water, which in love. Impressive selection including 3 Floyds. Owner is an English speaking beer geek and staff are reasonably helpful. Prices are a bit step though. A really good stop.
Popped into Craft Heads on a relaxed and quiet Sunday evening. Warm decor, dimmed lights, high stools along the bar. Heavy focus on US micros but there is local on tap too. Large fridge once again filled with US beers. Expect to pay big for the more obscure bottles. Staff were fine. I didn’t eat but the salt burger sounded interesting. A must while doing the rounds of Shibuya.
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.
Nice new bar with great beers available. A bit pricy, but top conditioned beers, many of which you won’t find anywhere else. Servers seem to know their stuff, and the owner was very knowledgeable and friendly. Have to go back for more. They have DL in the bottle!
We visited 1.3.2015. Nice beer bar with a good Whiskey selection. They have many quite rare US beers on tap, many beers from Pizza Port and Lost Abbey (bottle). Although they had some rarities, did not like the selection too much, as just a few craft beers from Japan an no IPA on the menu. We had a Sake beer, which was interesting.
After Mugishutei, this is probably one of the coolest places to go out for beer in Japan. They have tons of rare American bottles available, a decent selection of Japanese & American craft beer on tap and prices for those are average for Tokyo. The rare bottles aren’t so badly priced when you figure this place gives you a chance to try Dark Lord from Three Floyds, Allagash, Founders, etc. which are usually unavailable in Japan or outside the brewery. The staff are knowlegeable, friendly & cool. The atmosphere is great but a bit too dark which made it tough to get good photos. They also have a bunch of beer goods like tshirts & glasses available. I heard the food is good and I will try it next time. All in all an excellent place and I will be sure to visit again whenever I am in Tokyo!
Nice looking place, with a mix of foreigners and locals. Had a really good selection of Japanese micros and American imports on tap. As usual for Tokyo, prices are a bit high, but not really much higher than anywhere else. Visited on a Friday night fairly late and didn’t have any trouble getting a table. Very friendly staff and happily put up with my bad Japanese.
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.
Nice little bourbon and craft beer bar tucked away in Shibuya. Nice selection of drafts with what seems to be an equal amount of Japanese and imports (U.S., Europe, etc.). Very nice bottle list with breweries including Three Floyds and Hair of the Dog. Bartenders are very nice and talkative despite the language barrier. Some of the small plates/starters are a bit small portioned but the food is solid.
