Appropriately refined for its magnificent location (seventh floor, directly across from the Kabukiza), this Ginza bar is named after Furuta Oribe (1544-1615), a samurai and master of the tea ceremony whose students included shogun Tokugawa Hidetada. Although the views of the iconic theatre are the main attraction, the veteran master here also serves up some mean cocktails – try the sublime Silver Bullet for a drink matching the atmosphere.
