This stylish little bar, a sister shop to Before9 in Kyoto, offers a decent selection of both craft beer and sake, with some wine as well. Reflecting its diverse drinks list, the food menu is also a bit more sophisticated than your usual beer bar. The eight taps dispense mostly Japanese craft beers, including a few from the up-and-coming Kyoto Brewing Company.
The bar's interior is tastefully decorated in a rather minimalist manner, and there's a bit of outdoor seating under the building's eaves.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
