This dimly-lit and atmospheric bar, inspired by machiyas (traditional Kyoto wooden townhouses), is equally popular amongst Japanese people and people of other nationalities. K-Ya offers a sleek, sophisticated and tranquil environment, aided by a view of a leafy and peaceful courtyard through its windows. Grab a high wooden stool at the bar and let the wizards behind the counter do their thing – expect an enormous range of single malt whiskies and cocktails made with freshly squeezed fruit juice. It’s a singular highlight in an area that’s full of good bars – don’t miss the Craftman beer bar if you’re going on a pub crawl.
