Bar Gen Yamamoto

Bar Gen Yamamoto has got to be one of the most interesting cocktail bars in Tokyo. The name of the bar comes from the owner who had been working in New York as a mixologist prior to opening his own bar in Azabujuban (Roppongi area).
The discreet bar is located at a 3-minute walk from the Azabujuban station or a 10-minute walk from Roppongi station. It only has a few counter seats and the atmosphere is very calming. Go there and you won't believe you're in the heart of one of the busiest districts of Tokyo.

Seasonal Omakase (4 or 6 cocktails)

Of course, you can order just one drink here, but it is recommended to have the tasting menu called the "omakase" which means in Japanese to leave it to the chef.

Omakase courses are rather common at sushi restaurants, but having the bartender decide what drink to serve his patrons based on what best seasonal ingredients he has at hand is rather unusual for a bar, to say the least! The experience is extremely interesting, however. If you love fruity cocktails and are looking for drinks that embody Japan, for their aesthetic and the locally produced ingredients that are used for making them, then you will not be disappointed with this place.
The formula is very simple: 4 cocktails for ¥4,700 and 6 cocktails for ¥6,700. Most patrons order the omakase but of course, you can order just one drink a la carte as well.
By ordering the omakase, what will be served to you is a succession of cocktails made from fresh fruits from all over Japan. Japan has a very different climate from north to south, so you can enjoy for instance some apple-based creations from apples of the northern and mountainous regions of the country and some mango cocktails with mangoes that come from the southern tip of the archipelago.
Every cocktail is served on a plate with a flower on it as a seasonal reference. The glasses used also change for every drink.
Many of the drinks are made from the Japanese spirit called shochu or some local world-renowned whiskey. The balance of the ingredients is just spot on.

Mixing together 4 or 6 different cocktails in an evening may sound like a bad idea, but the way it's done at Bar Gen Yamamoto is so great that it has earned the establishment countless positive reviews from online users and various media sources alike. Make sure to give it a try!
