Bar Rocking Chair
Whiskey lovers and spirit connoisseurs should not miss this twee, micro bar hidden on an unassuming residential street in the quiet Shimogyo ward of Kyoto. Its gracious and creative bartender/owner Kenji Tsubokura is known to mixologists the world over for his trademark drinks (Sudachi Gimlet anyone?) emphasizing quality whiskey and seasonal fruit. (Not to mention the bar’s three fireplace-perched rocking chairs are quite possibly the world’s coziest place to curl up with a dram.) There’s also a small snack menu with creative fare that complements the spirits—homemade beef jerky and pickles, cream cheese and miso, and scotch-soaked raw chocolate with your choice of malt.
