This place had a good selection of beers and the food was good too. The setup was interesting but maybe not the most comfortable. It was good to have a couple of drinks but it was a little on the expensive side.

The selection of beers is very interesting, but they charge too much for the service. Smile and a bit more of gentleness will help to create a better atmosphere...

This place came recommend as a pub but fell short. The beer on offer was not as good as most small pubs this size and the service was abysmal. The lady behind the bar would fit in at a high end New York eatery, staring...More

Went here on our first night in Kyoto. I wanted to try some local breweries here in Japan and this was the first. The place was packed, combined with foreigners and locals. Beers are VERY expensive but as always IPA doesn't let you down. Food...More

Quite an Ikea vibe inside with the flatpack-esque furniture. Reasonable selection of craft beers, some better than others (!). Overall, very expensive for a standard hipster bar.

Good craft beers (apparently one of the only places in Kyoto), their sake glasses are huge. Worth a stop if you walk by. They seem to be non-smoking. A bit on the expensive side for beer (¥800 for the "large" glass seen in the picture)...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
