This is a great place to hang out, whether solo with a good book or out with friends hitting the night spots of Roppongi. It's a comfy place, more like a living room than a bar, with artwork, mismatched furniture, and a slightly feminine and funky vibe that reflects the personality of California transplant, artist, and owner Traci. In an effort to serve as a cultural center, it offers several events every month, including a monthly Cow Jam with live music, a dinner buffet and an open mic. The food, too, is reason enough to come, with a menu that includes burritos, burgers, pasta of the day, and more, with about half of the offerings vegetarian-friendly. But don't mistake this as some touchy-feely Bohemian place—it's also the first restaurant in Japan to accept Bitcoins.
