    It was a fun night out here in Kitsune Kyoto with great music to dance all night long! You get one drink including in the entrance fee.

    The guide was warm and enthusiastic about Kyoto life. Shared about the history of Kyoto and was able to answer good questions and recommended local cuisine / snacks to try. His English is easily understood and very considerate. He helped the other travel parties find the transport to get to their next program. Thank you Yutaka Yoshida-san!

    Well balanced cocktails, magicians as mixologist. Small bar so may not get space if you reach late. Lovely experience.

    We were in Kyoto for five days and we wanted to go to a club and have a good night. We went to chambers and we had such an amazing night. They played R&B in one room and then they played reggae in the other room.

    They played music that was from my culture and it was so nice to see the Japanese embracing black music especially reggae.

    The people there were amazing and so friendly I went with my partner who found other people there from his country Poland so that was good for him as well.

    The drinks were cheap and very strong not like how it is in the uk the drinks are always watered down so you don’t feel the effect you pay for what you buy in Japan.

    I would recommend this club to anyone who is going to Kyoto.

    Great bar for cocktails
    A small bar with very friendly staff - would definitely recommend going - the bar staff will make you any cocktails even if not on the menu and we even saw them make up some non alcoholic ones for kids

    Great little bar on the 1st (ground) floor with 2 more rooms up above. The barman (Nobu) was really friendly/easy going and made an effort to involve me in the conversation with a regular as I had stopped by on my own.
    Good prices and a wide choice of drinks and they have a lot of local beers/gins too. Great location right at the north end of Pontocho.
    Well worth checking this place out whether you live in Kyoto or are here on vacation.

    Hands down the best night club in Kyoto. Lived in Kyoto for 4 years for my undergrad and I went to World soooo many times. The music is good (usually plays all genres) and the staff are super friendly and nice. They also get famous artists from around the world for a decent cover charge (I saw Steve Aoki and R3HAB). Would definitely go whenever I come visit Kyoto again. Thank you for all the amazing memories!

    you will receive up to 5 different laminated menus detailing the whisky(s) they have available. If you are here, then obviously Japanese whisky is the way to go. quite simply, it is an amazing whisky bar with all the necessary attention paid to the details.

    I was 99% convinced I was in the wrong area as there is very little else in the area (but it’s not far from kiyamachi), but it has a seriously awesome, chill vibe. There are a bunch of standard rules for shisha places similar to back home (US) but not for the purposes of extortion. I would say this is the best shisha place in Kyoto, perhaps Japan, and I’ve been to about 10 places from Okinawa to Sapporo. Very well done to the owner hope this place is here next time I visit
