L'Escamoteur

Kyoto, Japan

Playing on the idea of magic and alchemy, this experimental cocktail bar, with its cramped, dimly lit interiors, is often compared to the fantasy world of Harry Potter. Scattered about is a mashup of odds and ends, including books, hats, bike parts and vintage decanters. Drinks follow the theme, all being centred around mystery and magic, and are presented by flamboyant bar staff. There’s plenty of local ingredients making an appearance, think yuzu, matcha and regional spirits, alongside the usual flavours. And it also frequently hosts live music events.
