Hyaku Standing Bar Description

Step into the lively and welcoming atmosphere of Hyaku Standing Bar, a renowned izakaya in Kyoto. With a rich history of over 20 years, Hyaku has seamlessly transitioned into a standing bar, offering patrons a chance to savor handmade, rich, and delicious menus. Hyaku offers delicious food and alcohol at reasonable prices, and aims to provide customers with a fun social gathering spot in Kyoto. The restaurant has garnered attention, having been featured in more than 50 TV and magazine interviews, a testament to its popularity and culinary excellence.
What makes Hyaku Standing Bar truly special is its status as a certified store by Suntory, holding both the prestigious 'Beer Certification' and 'Highball Certification.' This recognition places it in the top echelon of Suntory-affiliated establishments, with less than 5% of such stores nationwide receiving these accolades. The commitment to quality is further emphasized by its five consecutive years as a Suntory-certified restaurant, a mark of distinction for those meeting strict standards of excellence. Hyaku is one of the top Suntory-related facilities in Kyoto, and is one of the few stores in Japan to receive the W award.
Hyaku offers drinks at reasonable prices ranging from ¥330 to ¥440 (excluding some bottles of sake) and food from ¥110 to ¥330 (excluding some products). Soft drinks, however, sell for an amazing low price of ¥220. For those who are concerned about sugar content, Hyaku also offers a low-sugar option: Suntory Perfect Beer for 330¥. The super carbonated highball costs 330¥, and popular drinks such as the octopus highball and stylish gin soda are also available for 330¥.
Hyaku's appeal lies not only in its exquisite drinks, but also in the food it serves, as it is run by a local bento company, Yushokutei, that specializes in bento dishes. Hyaku offers hot, freshly fried dishes ranging from 110¥ to 330¥ (excluding some items), such as freshly fried ham cutlets for 110¥ and winter oden for 110¥.
The standing bar concept allows patrons to enjoy a casual and social drinking experience along both walls, fostering a sense of community. The self-service system, where patrons exchange cash for vouchers, adds an element of convenience; each voucher is valid for 3 months and can be used by groups.
Since its inception, Hyaku has been used not only by local Kyoto residents, but also by foreigners living in Kyoto, Japanese tourists, and even tourists from overseas. The unique combination of a standing bar atmosphere, Suntory certifications, and budget-friendly pricing make Hyaku Standing Bar an unforgettable destination in Kyoto's culinary landscape. Whether you're a local or a visitor, this Showa-inspired izakaya promises a delightful experience where nostalgia meets contemporary flair.
