The Bar

The Bar

Every aspect of the bar has been carefully curated with the essence of the city of Kyoto in mind, encapsulating the spirit of Kyoto’s traditional ‘machiya’ (town houses).

The machiya itself dates back to 1908 and we have managed to keep many of the original features in tact including the timber frame, the ceilings and parts of the walls – check out the ‘arakabe’ mud and straw walls on the upper part of the second floor, the 9 meter single piece of mahogany counter, the inner garden as well as the beer garden area – unique to craft beer bars in Kyoto.

It was important for us to create the bar in a machiya so that visitors and locals alike have a chance to experience the special, romantic atmosphere that only Kyoto machiya imbibe. Of course we injected some ‘chic’ so we can bring up the vibe on DJ/event nights.
