Soul Bird (Hamamatsucho: Beer bar)
Soul Bird
Open 11:30am-2:30, 5pm-midnight. Closed Sundays.

This laid-back neighborhood craft-beer bar feels like a comfortable place to have an after-work party or just hang out. The soundtrack is an eclectic mix of soul music and Japanese rock and pop, and the interior has a rough-hewn, casual feel, with a wide counter bar, high tables and a spacious back room to handle whatever crowds may turn up.

The rotating selection of ten Japanese craft beers is better than average, and you can explore several at a time with tasting flights - your choice of three 180ml pours for Y1120. Individual glasses are priced at Y880 for almost a pint (450ml) and Y580 for a small glass.

The food is less exciting than the beer - fairly average bar fare like sausages, tortilla pizzas and red-hot buffalo wings. Lunch is served on weekdays.

Minato-ku, Hamamatsucho 1-20-5.
