Came here for after dinner drinks. A Japanese colleague led the way although he did not join us, but that may have contributed to us being invited in without problem (and without reservation). No drinks menu, but an English speaking bar tender trying to understand...More

It is on the BACK SIDE of the Max Mara store, on the street that is a walking street, not the main street with car traffic. If you come in early when they open, it's less likely you will need to reserve. Stopped in two...More

I came back to Bar High Five as a huge fan. I’m sad to say that since my last visit it has lost all of its charm. Where it was once a warm and inviting, intimate experience, it’s moved to a new space with none...More

Located in the basement in a small Ginza street, take the elevator down. A few table and a bar. Listed among the best bars of Tokyo. Interior will not impress you, but the selection of whiskey for sure will. No menu, so the bar man...More

Downstairs on a back street in the Ginza, this dark wood panelled bar is a pilgrimage for bartenders and others from around the world who love great cocktails. It is not a large place, so reservations are highly recommended. Bartender/owner Hidetsugu Ueno is world-renowned for...More

Some friends from Singapore recommended we visit while in Tokyo. It’s pricey, there’s a cover charge to get in, and the drinks aren’t cheap. However, you get what you pay for- the staff was attentive, wanted to know our specific preferred flavors and interests for...More

Where to start? Firstly there was a bit of a 'wow' as we walked in. The atmosphere was great and the room was very stylish. Although the bar was smaller than we expected, it gave a more personal experience. The bar staff were spot on,...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

Response from Peter H | Reviewed this property |
A well known cocktail like an old fashioned or gin martini would cost around 1700¥. I've ordered a significantly more expensive drink 4000-6000¥ and Ueno San was good enough to warn me in advance. A table cover is around... More
