If you're here in summer, you might wish to take advantage of an evening beer garden. You'll find them atop the Hotel Kurashiki, in the courtyard of Ivy Square, and on the lawn of the Kokusai Hotel. The first two offer only all-you-can-eat-and-drink sets for around ¥3,500, while the last option has an a la carte menu as well.
