Feel free to follow favy!
Sakana-to O-sake Gotoshi 魚とお酒 ごとし
This is a small sushi and sake bar of just 10 places located a 5-minute walk from Karasumaoike station. They offer all kinds of warm sakes to pair with your exquisite sushi. The place is relatively high-end so expect to pay around ¥6,000 or more per person.
Near Karasuma station, there is this great affordable sake bar. The place has only 12 seats (8 counter seats and one 4-seat table) and a simple, relaxing authentic interior with a nice wooden counter. Expect to pay around ¥2,000 and ¥3,000. This is also a good place to try shochu (Japanese spirit).
This is the place to go for affordability and excellent quality of both sake and traditional side dishes such as sashimi, stews or dumplings. The catch is that Suiba is a standing bar - which actually isn't really a catch because standing bars have a charm of their own so you should definitely try this place out! There are about 40 places at Suiba so you can enter in relatively large groups. The bill here should cost you more than ¥2,000.
Tsuki-no Kurabito 月の蔵人
This is a dining bar of Kappo cuisine, which is a kind of traditional cuisine where you get served all kinds foods beautifully presented in small plates. Kappo cuisine includes sashimi, grilled fish, tofu, stews and vegetables. Kappo is similar to kaiseki cuisine but is much more affordable. To accompany this, they have a great selection of sake. Expect to pay around ¥3,000 and ¥4,000 for dinner and about half of that for lunch. The bar is at a 5-minute walk from the Fushimi-Momoyama station.
Kyoto Tsukune Seisakusho 京都捏製作所
This is a yakitori izakaya so you can get some amazing grilled chicken on skewers with your sake. The place is nice a cozy and is open until 5 AM so it's a good izakaya to eat and drink until the wee hours of the night in good company. Located near the Kyoto Shiyakushomae station.
