The extreme kitsch of this Shimo-Kitazawa bar, which resembles a mix of gingerbread house, treehouse and pub, betrays what is in fact a classy establishment. There’s a wide selection of bottled beers, as well as a high-quality menu of freshly made Okinawan and Thai dishes. The playlist consists mostly of legends such as Sly and the Family Stone, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and the like, but you can bring your own CDs and staff will play them.
