Bar Gats warm sake | Time Out Tokyo

Tucked away in an alley and run by the vocalist of a very merry jazz band, Bar Gats is pretty much a hot sake institution. The eight-seater lends itself more to a simple night of appreciating the drink rather than a rowdy party, but is all the better for it. There’s no menu here, as the bartender will pick a selection for you, complete with perfectly paired otsumami (snacks). Note that speaking Japanese infinitely enhances the experience, as staff keep up a running commentary about the merits of hot sake in rapid-fire Japanese all night.
