After a few drinks at Terry's favorite watering hole San-Tsubo we headed into neighboring Brian Bar for some...
... yup ...
Outlawed in the USA... Absinthe~. Was my very first time to try this... a very smooth liquorice flavored drink. Was expecting something a bit deadly but even a sweet gal would enjoy this.
Counter seating for about 8 people... and 2nd floor has one small room that can fit about 5.
If you have an iPhone they'll let you hook up your tunes to the system.
My pickled veggies (automatically comes out) and the Absinthe.
Looking down at the counter seating from 2F.
Definitely one of the friendlier bars and everyone inside seemed to be a regular... If you are lost in the maze that is Golden-Gai why not stop by Brian Bar? The kicker is as with nearly all the bars in this area there is an entrance fee...1,000yen for Brian Bar but this can range from 500 - 2000yen depending on the shop.
