I've have to say Rigoletto is somewhat like CHEERS... you will always run into friends and the bartenders always remember the regulars... Food and Drinks start at an easy 500yen.
Lots of table seating but I suggest the booths that line the kitchen. They are set up higher so you can get a view of everything.
And meet Gen Japan's only fully bilingual cat/dogVeterinarian showing us the standing bar area.
This was a Tuesday night so a bit quiet but there were a few cool people around.
Lots of great items but we normally settle for a few pizza's at the long bar counter.
Bartender Rachael... always friendly. Staff at the bar is great.
Meet Bob... always friendly friendly.
Meet Yuki the Bar Manager... normally has a stern face but you'll occasionally see him smile.
I assume he's just waaaaay to busy with filling bar and restaurant drink/food orders.
And once in a while you'll spot alot of pretty girls.
Overall this is just a nice place to hang out with friends over 500yen bottle beers. The is a big expat crowd but there is also a nice mix of local's who when the restaurant area is full wait here and drink until their table is open. So you'll actually meet some very nice people who don't really have exposure to foreigners and why not try out a little Japanese on them :).
