Shibuya: Bar
Ishinohana (Shibuya: Bar)
Open 6pm-2am. Closed Sundays.

This stylishly retro watering hole in Shibuya serves original cocktails crafted with precision and panache. Bartender Shinobu Ishigaki has a winning way with unusual flavor combinations and mixes fruits, vegetables, and herbs into his drinks.

Ishigaki puts a fresh twist on the standard gin and tonic with the addition of cucumber slices, and he finishes his Cosmopolitans with rose petals. Martinis get a spicy lift from basil or gingerbread syrup. Although an evening at Ishinohana is not cheap - drinks cost Y1,500 on average - Ishigaki's flawless technique and gracious hospitality make the experience worth every yen.
