It's located on a basement floor.
This bar has an amazingly cool atmosphere, in large part because it has a burning kiln right in the middle of it that sends out a warm glow and the lights are kept to a minimum. There is no menu per-se at this bar, so you just ask what you want to have and they'll make it for you if they can. They make seasonal cocktails (kissetsu no kokkuteru) that are about ¥2,000 and they have a great collection of all kinds of whiskeys, brandies, sake, shochu, wines. You can also just have an Ebisu beer. For food, you can also choose some vegetables that you like and they will charcoal grill them for you. These appetizers are good because they use seasonal ingredients, and very well-presented!

The other difference is that they have more food on their menu, including main dishes such as pasta dishes (about ¥1,500) and pizzas (about ¥1,900). They have a wide variety of alcohols available here as well so just ask for what you want.
The strong point of Oden bar is their amazing fruit cocktails that are made with seasonal organic fruits. Hence the cocktail menu will vary depending on the time of year you go. They also have all kinds of fine spirits and other drinks, some of which are very rare and kept in the back bar. If you want to taste some outstanding, hard-to-find scotch or whiskey, ask for their recommendations. They have over 700 bottles of rare alcohols.
