Ebisu’s dimly lit, beautifully decorated Bar Tram specialises in medicinal herbal liqueurs and absinthe and is owned by Takuya Ito, one of Tokyo’s yakushu pioneers. Procuring most of his drinks directly from overseas, he serves up around 70 varieties of absinthe and 30-40 other concoctions. For cold winter nights, we’d recommend the Vertigo cocktail, made with bitter Amaro Averna liqueur and ginger juice. It certainly warms the body and is even supposed to boost your circulation. When pondering your next choice, try asking the bartender for details on the names, histories and flavours of the many bottles lined up behind the bar.
