1f, 1-5-8 Ebisu-Nishi, Shibuya-Ku, Tokyo, Japan
The dapper bartenders at this back-alley speakeasy are dab hands at traditional absinthe and sugar cube drips, but also showcase the 'green fairy' in cocktails such as a 'frappe' with lime, orgeat syrup and mint. If psychedelic aniseed-flavoured spirits are not your thing, there are plenty of other imaginative mixes on offer. Try the Dark Side of the Moon – a smoky mule variation with mezcal, picon, house ginger cordial, lime and charcoal inspired by the famous Pink Floyd song.
