Shigure

Perfect For: Drinks & A Light Bite Small Plates

This is a cool little sake bar that’s barely marked, so it tends to attract an in-the-know crowd. There’s a big sake selection with bottles from all over Japan, and a numbered map drawn of the country on one wall to help you navigate where different options come from. You’ll also find some surprisingly good small plates like sashimi or little rice bowls or fried chicken. This place is very low key, but it’s a great alternative when you want neither a fancy cocktail nor a loud, crowded bar. There’s also an unaffiliated cocktail bar called B Flat located right below, but that place has always had a weird piano bar vibe to us. Stick to Shigure.
