Pleasantly modern in its decor, Pump Craft Beer Bar is quieter and more low-key than the other craft beer bars in Ikebukuro, offering a decent selection of both imports and domestic beers from its ten taps, along with a fairly ordinary pub menu and a rock music soundtrack.

Perhaps the most appealing feature is its closeness to Tanakaya (at Mejiro station), one of Tokyo's best retailers for imported craft beers, making it easy to drop in here for a pint after doing some serious beer shopping.
