Glass Onion

Home away from Home

It’s easy to miss this tiny little bar and, believe me, I have, several times. Even when I’m looking for it. Glass Onion’s entrance is just a narrow staircase into the basement floor, no bright fluorescent sign boards or menu boards to otherwise advertise its existence. It’s a little gem that is known and frequented by just the people who live in the area, foreign and Japanese. There’s a good chance there’ll be a regular or two when you visit, strike up a conversation with them! The bartender and most regulars here all speak some amount of English.

The establishment itself is small but not uncomfortably so. It’s just the right amount of intimate. The dim, warm lighting, wooden decor, and clutter of toys and memorabilia add to this cozy effect. It’s like drinking in someone’s living room. Come here enough times and it’ll be like drinking in your own living room.

Right across from the counter is a projector screen playing music videos through YouTube. Feel free to request a song or music video so you can enjoy your drinks to a familiar beat. No song request is ever denied. Of course, just be conscious of the bar and its vibe and maybe refrain from requesting hard metal songs.

Glass Onion feels like home but remains just that bit exciting enough to keep it from becoming boring. There’ll be music videos to dance to if you want, and little items that you can play with (there’s a Matryoshka doll of all the members of Queen). Come here for a drink or two for a chill, relaxing night.

このちいさなバーを見逃すことはとても、本当に、簡単で、私も何度か迷いました。探していても見つけることが難しいぐらいです。Glass Onionの入り口は、地下階への狭い階段にすぎません。お店を宣伝するための明るい蛍光看板もメニューボードもありません。この地域に住んでいる外国人、日本人だけが常連の、小さな憩いの場です。あなたが訪問する際には、常連さんがいる可能性が多くあるので、彼らに会話をしてみてください!バーテンダーと常連さんはみんな、英語で会話ができるでしょう。



Glass Onionは家のように感じますが、退屈にならない十分な刺激を保っています。必要ならば、あなたが踊るためのミュージックビデオや、あなたが遊ぶことのできる小さなアイテムなどもございます(Queen全メンバーのマトリョーシカなど)。ぜひここで飲み物を飲みながら、リラックスした落ち着いた夜を過ごしてみてください。

很容易错过这个小小的酒吧,相信我,我有几次。即使我正在寻找它。 Glass Onion的入口只是一个通往地下室的狭窄楼梯,没有明亮的荧光标志牌或菜单板,以此来宣传它的存在。这是一个小宝石,只有居住在该区的外国人和日本人知道并经常光顾。当你访问时可能有一两个常规,与他们进行对话!酒保和大多数常客都会讲一些英语。



Glass Onion感觉像家一样,但仍然有点令人兴奋以防止它变得无聊。如果你喜欢的话,会有音乐视频可以跳舞,还有你可以玩的小物品(有俄罗斯娃娃的所有成员)。来这里享用一两杯饮品,放松一下地享受轻松的夜晚。
