If you find that your evening of Asagaya bar-hopping is getting too frenetic, this low-key Okinawan-inspired dive bar is a great place to slow the pace and chill out for a bit. The interior is filled with not-quite-kitsch bric-a-brac and the walls are covered with posters and fliers for indie-theater productions and concerts of local musicians.

Drinks include some oddball liqueurs (coconut, tomato and shikuwasa - a tropical citrus fruit) along with rum cocktails, Okinawan awamori and Orion beer in cans. There's a small but serviceable food menu if you want a snack, and live music from time to time.
