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.

A nice and varied beer bar. Normal small and cozy with interesting collectibles to look at, the staff has really good service and were pleasant, visited the place two times and noticed that beer varieties are replaced often. Instead of me makes this bar special.

A welcome surprise with a great lineup of tap beer plus some bottles. Lots of US brewing memorabilia on the wall and book shelves. Apparently a little brewery will open next door. We had a few food items and they were tasty but a little small for the price. I’ll definitely go back!

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.

Rather small place with a nice friendly atmosphere. Tap selection changes often and can be very good if you are lucky (which I was). Handles the beer nicely and very good service.

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.

Nice place where the people know and love beer and are very friendly. Great selection of taps, nice bottles too. A bit expensive compared to the local average. Very nice place, though, with imaginative menus. Looking forward to their own beer next year.

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.

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.
