Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

BEST COCKTAIL BAR!
Nov 2020 • Couples
We got recommended by a friend saying it was epic! It was truely AMAZING! This is definitely a must do on the list if you come to Kyoto! The cocktails were amazing we just kept wanting more and the staff are super friendly and helpful at recommending the best to suit what taste you would like! We couldn’t get over the set up nothing was out of place and almost felt like Harry Potter world! We thought the price of drinks were on par with what you pay for really good cocktails in Japan!

Beautiful Bar, Beautiful Drinks, Door Host Was A Bit Rude
Sep 2019 • Friends
We went here last night for a few drinks after a long day out cause we wanted something a bit different to beer.
It didn’t disappoint.

However when we found it, we went upstairs and being a group of 3 males were met with a bit of sarcasm and hostility saying it was full and we had just jumped ahead of two girls who were “waiting in a queue outside”. We told the dude there was nobody outside waiting to which he sarcastically replied “yes there is, there’s two girls, go look”. Lone behold, nobody outside.

We had to persist a little to eventually be give some space to have some cocktails and it was worth the persistence.

The drinks were amazing, creative and made with absolute care and finesse. (I’m an ex-bartender so appreciate a good cocktail!).

Christophe, the barman made me a beautiful sour of his own design and then when I ordered a second, he suggested a different but similar drink which was even more beautiful. Lovely guy, amazing bartender.

All in all an amazing experience in a beautiful bar; slightly soured by our unfriendly welcome!

Approach with caution if you’re a group of 3 males!

Great experiece.

Takes you back to France in the early 1900s. The french owner is usually there making his rounds and recommending drinks for you. 4 stars because the bar is very small, so get there early on weekends.

Really fun Speakeasy Bar
May 2019 • Friends
Being a foreigner, this was a really cool speakasy-like bar with a unique selection of drinks. The bartenders are friendly, and will make a drink based on what you'd like!

Check out the bathroom, too! It's hidden!

I spent a fun birthday evening here and everything was perfect, from the warm greeting upon entering, to the delicious cocktails and very varied menu to the theatrics of the staff, this place will have you clawing for your camera on multiple occassions. Atmosphere was great along with a fun sound track.
