With views over Kyoto’s river, this upscale modern bar has one of the city’s most pre-eminent spirit selections, boasting 1,200 sake varieties and 600 expressions of single malts, including some extremely rare bottles. This is where the serious spirit seekers of Kyoto, and well-informed travellers, come to sip cocktails, order neat drams and relax. And, considering the price tag of some of those whiskies, guests will find the service friendly and refreshingly informal. K6 has a unique idea of Scottish fare as well, with creations including a haggis pizza.
