Weird bar in Tenma with a temperamental owner and strange atmosphere. That said, both times I have been I seemed to be on the owners good side. She was extremely friendly on my first visit, offering some samples. It’s very small and not a place for a session. If she has something good on and you’re in the area pop in for one, at the least you’ll have a good story.
This place is awful. The menu is 3 pages: One for the 6 beers they are offering (decent, but nothing special). One for food (cheese or soup). And the last one...all of the rules you must obey to enjoy the "privilege" of standing here. Very cold atmosphere...like having a beer in the principal’s office in total silence. Just awful. だから、おみせをでるまえにおおきなおならをしました 😉
Small local standing dive bar in a lively area. Short japanese tap list. Crowd is very local so you may feel a bit out of place if you don’t speak japanese. Foodwise, sardines looked yummy but didn’t stay long enough to give them a go. Nothing amazing but ok for a quick one for the road.
Great little place. I tried to find it but missed it. Luckily I met up with a nice Japanese lady who actually worked there. So she showed me the way. No wonder I missed this place it was tiny. Fun little place.
Small bar in an alley, just off the large Tenma shopping arcade. Not so easy to find. Owner can seem unfriendly and is a bit brusque, but she knows the beer scene in Japan well and can supply lots of information on the brews she serves. Six taps, and all Japanese craft beers, but a good selection of styles. Not really a place to hang out for an evening (or even more than an hour) -- no seats, after all -- and one gets the feeling that the owner would just as soon have you try a few and then move along. A good place to visit from time to time, as she is alway getting new and interesting Japanese beers.
Very difficult to find, but worth looking for. 6 taps and a counter, no muss no fuss. Clean with no distractions and at 6 people may seem crowded. Only craft beer with light snacks. A fun stop, but difficult without a Japanese speaker.
Tiny place fits 7-8 standing max. No seats. 6 taps are all Japanese micros and excellently chosen. Always a lager, a wheat beer, a hoppy beer, a stout, a fruit beer. Therefore it gets a high selection score despite having just 6 beers at a time. Beers (and customers) rotate quickly and you can just about always count on something new and interesting to try. There have been some Belgians lately too. Prices reasonable. Woman owner is knowledgeable and friendly, and runs a tight ship. This place is designed for you to stop in for a couple while on a pub crawl, and it’s perfect for that. Highly recommended for a stop. If it’s full, go to Beer Belly for a few then come back later.
I love this place. Small selection (5-6 beers) but so well chosen. Awesome staff that is always friendly and helpful. I like standing bars. This is my dream standing bar. That only five people can fit in is a good and bad thing. Focus on the good.
I walked in all scruffy, panting and sweaty after taking an hour to find the place with my old iphone battery running low, so didnt give the nice quiet female owner and the very shy single young female customer the best first impression.
Well chosen line up, served in great condition but not the place to tell a few jokes or to do a nice friendly ’KAMPAI!’ with the owner or single scared as hell female customer. Prices good and i was glad to try Nagisa stout, their new seasonal. After mentioning I’d been to their brewery recently plus most other places around, the owner relaxed a tad. Still, I felt fine just having the one beer then moving on. Speaking Japanese definitely helps, here. Very quiet place. Standing only for half a dozen. Catch your breathe and tuck your shirt in before you enter. ^-^
This place is a bit hard to find in a kind of alley of standing bars. It’s non-smoking which is great and has 6 taps of Japanese craft beer that changes often. It can fit 5-10 people tops and has no table charge. It seems to be mostly for popping in for a quick drink. Nice if you’re in the area.
