The bartenders were dressed in buddhist clothing i guess, but i didn’t really experience any buddhist culture beyond that. Some of the drinks tasted good, but not that fancy. The food was really subpar.
Loved this bar. It has a cosy atmosphere in the main bar to the left which holds about 20 people. If the main bar is full there is an overflow bar to the right which can hold another 10-15 people which is much quieter.
The bar is operated by group of Shinto Monks. Conceptually it is very good for going to the bar and discussing with monks in various topics. The monks might not be fluent in English but they can communicate.

I checked out these small bar at Buddhas birthday. A really nice & peaceful place. When ever you'll stay in Tokyo you should try this monk bar. The staff are Buddhist monks and so peaceful and friendly. I'm really glad to visit them.

Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
