Star Bar, 1-5-13 Ginza, Chuo-Ku, Tokyo, Japan

It's all about the details at Hisashi Kishi's influential Ginza bar, which has helped train some of Japan's best bartenders. Ice is slow frozen to reduce bubbles and hand carved for customers, while bar staff use the infinity shake – a figure-of-eight movement which creates fine bubbles to lighten the alcohol. Kishi is best known for his signature Sidecar – a classic that suits the low-key polished wood interior, which hums with the contented murmur of serious cocktail drinkers.
