Well designed and cozy bar with great music and drinks. Overall good service. Happy we stumbled upon it while waiting for our dinner reservation.

We went to Niji because we were early for a dinner reservation nearby. We decided to have drinks and filled out the membership form (which was odd but also fine). The list of drinks is impressive, but they're also pretty expensive for what they are....All in all a fun experience but I wouldn't go back.More

Awesome staff, drinks are amazing. The place is a masterpiece. Really enjoyed it. Also you have to register as a member of the club.

Had a few drinks with friends the other night. I immediately thought my Manhattan tasted strange, as if it had been prepared with bottom-shelf liquor. My friends said the same about their drinks. One of them started feeling sleepy and ill so we left immediately....Not sure what they put in our drinks but it was not right. We won’t return.More

We stopped into this bar after dinner, we walked by a few times so we wanted to check it out, and it was very disappointing especially after reading all of the reviews of people having a good experience. We had to ask one of the...two people working every time we wanted a drink when there were 4 or 5 other “tables.” We asked for the check twice and when we were finally given the amount, we still had to wait about 10 mins so we gave up and went to the bar to pay and we were finally told, for the first time EVER, that it was cash only. This place looked very chill and relax so the service experience was highly disappointing! I would recommend going to one of the bars in the area.More

We really enjoyed this spot. Understatedly hip, cool tunes (lots of Parov Stelar), great cocktails. Perfect spot for an aperitif while one waits for the restaurant reservation time to arrive. First time, we stumbled on it because it was close to the restaurant we were...about to go to dinner at. Next time, we purposely made reservations at a restaurant close to it so we could have drinks here first. They make an outstanding Negroni, but there are several unique cocktails on their menu that are worth a try. A they give you fresh popped popcorn with your drink order to boot! (perfect to stave off that hunger while you wait for dinner time to arrive). The vibe is chill, and the service good. And the mixologist knows what she's doing.More

Good service ( a bit more attentive when the place is not crowded), deceptively good cocktails, and a comfortable, laid back environment. We live nearby and this place is a great, not-terribly touristed, option.

I would definitely recommend this bar if you have a niche drink you like. I’ve visited this bar in July 2018 and appreciated their wide variety of drinks. The bartenders were very knowledgeable of every single kind of drink possible. Lisa was particularly helpful. Lisa...found just the right drink for the customer based on interests and tastes.More

This place is one of the best cocktail bars I’ve been too, and as from my previous reviews you’ll see I’ve been to many!! The place is hidden down a side street next to some cafes and restaurants so make sure you keep an eye...out for the door as it’s very distinctive. The cocktails here are unique and good value for money. The atmosphere is amazing and there’s so much to look at. The place isn’t huge so I’d recommend going early to get a seat. They offer table service, water and free salty home made popcorn which was addictively tasty!More
