First class! This little hideaway is tantamount to a speakeasy. Great spirits, cigars with a first rate updraft system. The decor is elegant with dark woods, leather, classical music...its a retreat for the mind! Has an alcove for a small group. If you're looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle.
..stop in and have a smoke and drink! Third floor of small elevator next to restaurant in Shinjuku area, and I come here every time I'm in Tokyo. Not much English, but who cares...


Best speakeasy bar I've visited yet. Service, decor, and atmosphere are all fantastic.

It was quite easy to order a drink as an English speaker, there's no menu so you just ask for what you'd like and they provide you with different options for spirit choice.

Just have to mention the amazing service again, the bartender took my coat as I sat down and walked us to the elevator on the way out.

I wouldn't recommend the place if you can't stand the smell of tobacco as this is a smoking bar, but on the same note, you're able to buy great cigars and have a puff while you enjoy an old fashioned from the comfort of a leather armchair - a highly recommended experience!


Great bar and atmosphere, a bit smokey as they have a cigar selection and many smoke cigars here. Drinks are not cheap but cocktails are well made. Classy place to have a drink or two.
