I can understand why some people would find this bar attractive. But as someone born within the past 40 years, all I took from the experience was that the bar an oppressive and rather snobbish atmosphere serving overpriced drinks. A visit to this establishment rather...More

The drinks were great but it did lack a bit of atmosphere. To be fair, we did visit fairly early on a Monday evening so maybe this can be forgiven. The bar staff were very professional but could maybe do with relaxing a little as...More

Great atmosphere, great selection of whiskeys, decent enough cocktails. Staff were lovely too. Looked way better inside than it did from the outside staircase entrance! Overall we really enjoyed our evening but the smoke from other customers really let it down. This is common in...More

We were looking for a place to smoke cigar in Kyoto and found this bar. Nice ambiance and quite a big place for Japanese standard. They have a small menu for drinks, but I suggest that you just ask the bartender which poison you want...More

Great whiskey bar- we really annoyed the night atmosphere. More upscale so dress appropriately- the staff is in suits and there's a mixologist up front who is great to watch. Sit at the bar if you can. Totally ok to go if you're not super...More

Good service, great drinks and an incredible collection of miniature bottles. Maybe a good idea to bring your own country ones if you come here. Well done!

Lovely bar with a fantastic whisky collection and good cocktails. Staff were very knowledgable and well presented. The bar snack menu is a bit odd though - spaghetti with whisky anyone?

They have a fairly good selection of drinks and cigars. There were very few foreigners including us. You can smoke at the bar. They are very professional. The cocktails I got were pretty conservative and but good.

Japanese bespoke cocktail bars are the bomb! The ones in Japan are much cheaper than those I've been to in New York and K6 is a great example. Cocktails were about 600 yen a piece - which is insane for an expertly mixed piece of...More

This place is not casual at all. It's actually a refined cocktail place with old school charm. Situated just off Nijo Dori the cocktail bar offers understated charm amidst the busy bars and restaurants. I love cocktails made by proper mixologists so I was in...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
