Hi there. We will be back in Tokyo for three nights in the middle of May. I'm very excited (particularly as we will be having dinner at Takazawa again). I have been reading about the wonderful little cocktail bars in the Ginza (and elsewhere) and so, for our first night (which is a Wednesday night), I am hoping that we can visit a few of them for a drink.
I've narrowed my list down to some of the most famous - hopefully Tender Bar and Bar High Five, and then perhaps Star Bar Ginza if we're not too tired. We'll be jetlagged from Europe, so it's entirely possible we will be wide awake at midnight and in need of another drink before we stumble back our hotel.
Can anyone please give me an idea of how busy these places get on a Wednesday? Are they hard to get into? Are we better to show up at 7pm or 11pm or some other time? Are they the kind of places where people have one or two drinks and move on, or settle in for the evening? Any other hints or bars in the same vein?
Thank you all very much for your help.Edited: 8:32 am, March 21, 2013
