If you are ever at the Tokyo Zoo in Ueno and are looking for some respite from the heat and crowds, this cozy little spot is for you. Offering a peaceful haven away from the crowds and the animals, this little bar has cold beers for tired and thirsty souls. This is a place that you can keep coming back to, with regulars making up a large part of the clientele. There is live music nearly every night and happy hour daily between 5p and 7p. On Mondays and Sundays the nightclub opens at 5 p.m.
Arrived on my own and squeezed up to the bar.It didn't take me long to break the ice as every one was really friendly.900 yen a beer was a bit steep but with a great live act and no cover charge it felt justified.Met some brilliant people and am looking forward to my next visit.
It was my first and will be my last time there, i found it really hard to start a conversation with anyone there, the place seemed to only welcome regulars, who were very unsociable, the bartenders only seemed to entertain them, and made me feel very alienated.
To top it all off the beers are expensive and they have a very small selection on tap.
The energy was depressing and the only thing I enjoyed was the raj chicken,
but even that was not worth the wait.
I think the place is best suited for the elderly, it has a historical feeling.
It's hard to believe that they can fit a live band in this place. You may find yourself nursing your beer next to the lead singer.
If you acheive customer of the week status then you are definitely approaching severe alcoholism but having fun doing it.
best little pub in tokyo! this place celebrated its 8 year of existence, which is a major milestone considering its location and the boom of irish/british pub across tokyo. at one point, the management opened a sister pub closer to the station, the church, but that building renovated and kicked all the tenants out to do it. still the WC has survived.
I like this place, it's just one room and is like a real pub not one of those places trying to be a British pub (The Hub and the like). It's a bit of a dump, the furniture is tatty, is like going to your local back home. (Unless your local happens to be a posh wine bar). The food wasn't great but it was edible. I will definately return for a little piece of home in Ueno.
