Don't tell your friends, but this Jinbocho whisky bar deserves the vastly overused moniker of 'hidden gem': doing quiet business on a back street close to the station, it stocks one of the best selections in the entire city, including Japanese varieties dating back to long before the current boom. Make sure to try the excellent Ichiro's Malt, a product of Saitama's Chichibu Distillery and made with locally grown malt.
