Standing Bar Joe offers a dozen or so seasonal sakes by the glass, a handful of Japanese craft beers on tap, plus shochu, wine and cocktails. The food menu is relatively compact, but it offers a surprising variety of pork dishes, showcasing premium pork breeds from around the country. It all made sense when we learned that the bar is a sister shop of Butagami, the famous tonkatsu restaurant in Nishi-Azabu.
Snacks are priced at Y300, Y500 and Y800 a plate, while sake is Y500-800 for a glass.
