Small place with a good selection of craft beers available. Normally 10 tap beers at ¥1,000 for 15oz (¥700 for 10oz). Would recommend the beers, but not the food, which was very oily and portions were quite small. Hence the 3 stars.

A good selection of craft beers and also some fantastic food to complement the great atmosphere of this bar/ restaurant. Well worth a visit. We visited twice during our stay.

Decent Japanese craft beer options in a nice setting. It was probably one of the least friendly beer bars we went to in Kyoto. Don't know if it was just a slow night or we went too late. Would give it another shot if we...More

A little bar located on the main road in Kyoto, a perfect place to try Japanese craft beer. 3 young Japanese people working which made it hard for service but the food was amazing! Especially the Wagyu Beef. Great venue!

They've got good crafted beers from different places in Japan. They've got as well some snacks and light meals. We tried a weird dish: blue cheese, spicy hazelnuts and strawberry (yes, strawberry) , and resulted awesome.

We went there based on the Lonely Planet reco and just out of convenience given the proximity to our hotel. I must say this place is a disaster. A nightmare of any business owner. The waitress couldn’t explain neither the differences in the beer types...More

Bungalow has so much promise with a good location and a good vibe. The food was good, too. However, the waitress was surly, unhelpful and inattentive. The craft beers were good but had run out of three of the five that I asked for!

Expensive in comparison to other bars and restaurants in the area. The food portions along with the high prices are small. The food wasn’t particularly nice and the drinks were very expensive for what they were 1,200 yen for a small gin and tonic.

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.

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
