This bar has virtually no class. In fact, it looks like a cheap soba restaurant. But what it does have is sake, and lots of it. That's because it's part of a liquor store, with this small bar off to the side offering more than 100 different kinds of sake and shochu for customers to try. It's a good place to sample seasonal and regional varieties, or go for the three different kinds of sake for ¥1,000. If there are several of you, a cheaper alternative might be to purchase alcohol at the shop and pay a corkage fee (¥200 for beer, ¥500 for wine or sake). There's also a limited menu offering soba, edamame, and other snacks, but in truthfulness, you don't come here to eat. A good way to end a day of sightseeing in Asakusa.
