This place is a bit difficult to describe as on some level it’s misusing the term gastro-pub. Yes, there are food and good drinks, but only for the beers it really applies to the name. The food is ok, but lacks the true quality to...More

Yes, the beer is overpriced but unfortunately that's just kind of how it is for craft beer in Japan at the moment. 900 yen for a fairly small glass and about 1200 for a 'pint'. They've had fairly good tap selections the times I've been...More

When I went there they had ten Japanese craft beers on tap, including Bairds, Isekadoya, North Island and Kyoto Brewing. They had some pretty unusual/rare ones including a brand new IPL. The prices were in line with expectations (1200 for a US pint) and the...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

is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
