A great little bar close to Yoyogi Station and Shinjuku-Gyoen National Garden.The ambience here is great and the service exceptional. They have about a dozen taps split across Japanese and international craft brews as well as a range of cans/bottles. We just had a snack which was good but other meals being served looked good. Definitely a good option if in the area and perhaps even worth seeking out if not. NOTE: When I visited the Ratebeer Map was not quite correct. It is actually about 100m further north up the main road opposite the Shell station.

A solid option to try some Ji-beer but by no means the most extensive selection in Tokyo these days. Inviting atmosphere with very friendly and knowledgeable staff that were more than happy to have a chat all things beery. Great ambiance provided in the single room bar with comfortable seating and beer paraphernalia covering the wall. There’s a strong food focus of American and Japanese fare. A good place to strike up conversation with fellow beer enthusiasts.

Came in here shortly after they opened one afternoon. Its a small place close to the train that holds about 30 people. Beer signs, pint glasses and signs decorate the interior. The service was quick and quite friendly. I happened into a conversation about beer with a member of the staff, possibly the owner. He was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and wanted to know my opinions about American beer. He went so far as insisting that I use his wifi so that he could see my Ratebeer list. Lots of fun. There are about 20 beers on tap. They are a mixture of Japanese and a few American, all but 1 of which aren’t available where I live. Neat little place overall, and I wish I was able to visit longer. I will definitely make it a point to return here on my next trip to Japan.

This (and maybe Popeye) where the favourite bars in Tokyo that we visited. Selection was good with a mixture of Japanese and American beers. Staff were very friendly, patrons was a good mix of locals and tourists and prices were good.

Visited on the Sunday afternoon, was quite busy. Lots of beer related memorabilia on the walls. Selection was quite good 19 kegs + 2 casks. Nothing super interesting, but all Japanese micros most of which I haven’t seen elsewhere. Also 50-ish bottles in a fridge, really various stuff from Cascade to Loverbeer. Felt like a genuine beer place. Prices are a bit on a high side, especially half pints. Worth visiting.

Watering Hole is a great example of what a bar should be in 2015. Non-smoking, friendly staff, top-tier service, solid food and a nice selection of rotating taps. The only miss is value. They are one of the more expensive bars in Tokyo (especially w/r/t half-pints). I feel that the staff and the atmosphere really make up for the extra ¥150 per beer though. Best atmosphere in a bar in Tokyo imo. Floor to ceiling windows, high ceiling and a comfortable size.

Conveniently located near the Yoyogi Station and the huge Kinokuniya store in Shinjuku. I love the Watering Hole and would visit more frequently if I lived, worked, or shopped near it. The food is great. All of the people that work there have a real knowledge of beer. The best part is the 3-6 happy hour taster set, which has to be the best deal for craft beer in the city. I can’t wait for my next visit.

Came here at the end of a day long session with Tim Maloney and Chewy. Arrived about 10.30pm and were warned they were closing up. Had enough time for a couple of pints though. Set up is nice with a glass front and a modern and urban style bar with lots of craft brew stickers and American brewing labels and paraphernalia all over the bar. Line up was decent with some good Japanese craft beers alongside American beers. Two I had were in good condition and staff were friendly, offering tastes of different beers. Would come back here again a little earlier to enjoy the ambiance.

Popped in here for a beer, I thought the atmosphere was great, high ceilings simple wood/concrete/maybe fake bricks? look & the service was good. The selection was uninspiring for me, a few good things but I’d already had them and the big thing for me was the sticker shock most half-pints were 800-1000yen! 950 yen for a half-pint of Punk IPA??? If they’d had something I wanted I would have stayed but with those prices I left. My friend living in Tokyo said those prices are pretty average in Tokyo. Highest I ever saw though and I’ve been to most of Tokyo’s top 10 places...

Nice little place. Opens early, huge plus. Major collection of American breweries’ pint glasses. Decent--if limited--selection but good for size. Staff knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely go back next year (when we’re back in Tokyo).
