Blue Dragon


歌舞伎町1-1-7, 新宿区

If you’re unfamiliar with Golden Gai, it’s a full-blown neighborhood of mini themed bars with maybe eight seats tops, all stacked on top of each other in one giant fire hazard. Golden Gai has become very touristy in the last few years, but you’ll still want to check it out - there are a couple of pockets serving only Japanese people and not tourists, but we’re going to put them on blast for your benefit. One in particular is Bar Blue Dragon, which is an upper-level bar on one of the middle blocks. There’s no better way to tell you how to find it in Golden Gai, but if you manage to track it down, try the coffee-bean-infused shochu drink. And if you can’t find it, don’t worry - pick any tiny bar in the neighborhood and you’ll have a great time.
