The SG Club



This Tokyo spot is really three bars in one. At the entrance level Guzzle, you will find a casual atmosphere and crushable drinks. Downstairs in the darker, moodier Sip you find head bartender Yuya Nagamine serving up creative cocktails including a clever gin-based sipper that mimics a skin-contact wine, or Rain & Moss Gin Fizz, which lives up to its name in delicious fashion.  And up top is veteran barman Takahiro Watanabe serving drinks to match the various stages of a cigar, starting, perhaps, with a milky coffee Gin Fizz. Whichever the floor, expect plenty of owner Shingo Gokan’s own-brand SG Shochu, as well as an array of Japanese ingredients rarely found in a cocktail glass, from dashi to fortified sake to current favoyrite doburoku, a rustic proto-sake illegal in Japan until recently.
