Equipped with a full-on cellar, this Nishi-Azabu wine bar is great for spending the entire evening tasting, comparing and critiquing. They always have more than 20 varieties available for by the glass orders, while heretics can go for beer, whisky and cocktails. The food menu is nothing to sneeze at either, with French-inspired dishes like ratatouille, grilled meat and even crème brûlée demonstrating notable expertise. If you're looking for a place to spend a relaxed and quiet few hours, Goblin ticks all the boxes. Do note, however, that there's a ¥500 entrance charge.
