In Ikebukuro at 2pm after a great bowl of GROWTH Ramen and with the sun blaring we were looking for some beer. I can't ever recall drinking in the afternoon except during Hanami Season (Cherry Blossom season) at the park. This 2hr 1,000yen all-you-can-drink banner caught my eye... looked at my friend... he looked back at me... no questions asked we headed inside.
All you can drink menu.
The special is normally from 5-7pm but they said it was no problem to start at 2pm. Only rule is you need to order one plate of anything per person.
299yen per person will automatically be added to your bill and you get this starter.
If you are in Tokyo and craving seafood this is probably a great fresh spot to hit up but the local foodies don't quite agree with a lowly 2.89pt ranking
Craving the Tekka-Maki (Tuna Roll) but for 699yen it was a bit too much vs other shops.
They have flavored Whisky Hi-Balls... or just regular hi-balls.
Very spacious interior.
Order #1... salty seasoned cabbage
Order #2... baked garlic fish.... and thus we fulfilled the all-you-can-drink food requirement.
Mix of blue collared workers and younger people at this hour.
The staff of young ladies were very very friendly... think most were college students.

The food was a bit pricey for what you get but interior was spacious and design pretty cool. This franchise has recently expanded all around Tokyo . Unsure if I'll drink so early in the afternoon again but if I do this will be a spot I'd revisit for sure!
