I appreciate a bar that can capture my attention, whether it’s with its service, decor, crowd or otherwise. I’ve also always been a pub girl, because I love how I can spend hours and hours in one chatting with the people around me. Combine the two and you get the following list of bars that have absolutely captivated me and made me want to stay in them for hours on end.
Having previously worked in the craft beer industry, it’s no surprise that I’m a fan of good quality beer. I don’t often go out to Roppongi; however, when I do I always make sure to grab a pint (or two) at Two Dogs. Two dogs is great for a lot of occasions. I feel comfortable going alone as the bartender is always friendly, but it’s also spacious and lively making if a great place to meet up with some people. Their selection of beer is always changing and never boring, which can be the case with some craft beer bars in Japan.
You would be pleasantly surprised how many underground, secret bars there are in Tokyo! Instead of searching on Google and going blindly into the bars with the biggest and brightest signs, we have been exploring into small alleys and hidden corners, coming across all kinds of unique and amazing places. It is difficult to narrow down to a few of my favorites but here are a few spots which I have to throw the spotlight on!
