You don’t want to come here when you’re drop-dead tired, because there are no seats in this standing bar. But you do come because it’s cheap, with all food and most drink items priced at only ¥300 plus tax, the same price as when it opened 25 years ago. It’s a good place for a quick drink or as an early spot to meet up with friends in the Ginza, since by 10pm there can be a line of mostly young Japanese queued up at the door. It’s self-service, and upon entry you’re required to purchase a minimum of two tickets (at ¥324 each) if you’re a woman, three if you’re male, which can be redeemed for any drink or food item from the 100-plus menu listing everything from the excellent mojito made with the bar’s own herbs to a Cuban sandwich. Open daily noon to 2am (4am Fri and Sat). Two other branches, at 8–3–12 Ginza and 1–2–14 Yurakucho, also open from noon.
