A narrow wooden staircase leads down to this dimly lit Tokyo institution, which has raised some of Japan’s best bartenders and is presided over by the inimitable Hisashi Kishi. Kishi and his crew are famed for their attention to detail and service, and the bar has made Asia’s 50 Best Bars list three times since its inception. The gentle ambience and intimate space all lends itself to a cocktail experience like no other, where bartenders create drinks around guests’ requests and where small details, like the ice being slow frozen to reduce bubbles, reign supreme.
