Needed a spot to kill an hour and scanned the Ikebukuro standing bar rankings... this was at the top!
Lots of little home made dishes ranging from 200 to 300yen.
Japanese baseball draft on TV... Japan seems to mainly draft straight after high school.
Sake from 250yen~
Mug beers only 350yen... not too bad! Guinness 450yen and Heineken 435yen.
Chef hard at work.
I went to use the restroom and saw this! LOTS of alcohol... seems this shop is housed in the same building as a alcohol distributor.
First time too see stained glass in a rest room... very spacious.
Overall it was a nice cozy spot. The owner is the only guy on staff and super friendly. If you are in Ikebukuro I'd definitely recommend this spot for a few beers and some appetizers.
