Do not be put off by the retractable doors or the minimal seating down stairs, there is much more upstairs. The selection of local beers is good(but pricey at 1000yen a pint) and the Japanese natural wine was a interesting choice. Whilst the drink is...More

Stopped in for a beer and they had a great selection of local beers, however, at $10 a pint it was definitely over-priced.

Nice stylish bar, and the beer is excellent quality. But the prices?!?! I ordered a side order of potato wedges, and I counted 8 wedges in total. I also ordered a 'Homemade sausage with Japanese pepper' - it was basically a small, bog standard, sausage,...More

Check out this little place for a couple of pints. The beer is decent with about 10 on tap, and the food good although limited. We had the fries, which were good, and the bacon with apple sauce. It was a super small place with...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
