Comfortably furnished, stylishly decorated and open very late, G7 is aiming for a wider target audience than the typical Tokyo craft-beer bar. The food menu is more ambitious too, with original ham and sausage platters and aged beef dishes as well as dining-bar standards like bagna cauda, pastas and ajillo variations.
Hitachino Nest, Minoh, Baird and Far Yeast are represented among the seven craft beers on tap, with regular-size glasses going for Y780-900, and smaller pours starting at Y580; there's also a Y380 table charge. Drinks also include highballs made with assorted whiskeys from around the world, eight wines by the glass, two dozen wines by the bottle, and creative cocktails. Budget around Y4000-5000 for dinner with drinks.
