Entering this tiny Shinbashi bar with a group (that's two or more) might lead to a couple of unplesant looks: after all, the basement joint has space for only six imbibers at a time, and you're sure to be rubbing shoulders with fellow patrons on every single visit. But if lack of privacy isn't a problem for you, there's no reason not to seek out Artisan and its jovial master. Originally opened in Ginza as Land Bar, it moved to its current underground spot in late 2014, and continues to serve a plentiful selection of fruit-based cocktails – along with the occasional curry dish (!).
