Giving off a relaxed, local vibe, Lug serves up great coffee and a simple lunch menu during the day and has a very impressive rum selection by night, boasting over 150 different bottles. Unobtrusively located in the far back corner is a walk-in wine cellar that’s stocked with 100 percent natural wine bottles. Sommelier Honzawa-san, or ‘Pon-chan’ by all who know her, is passionate about natural wine and is constantly rotating the wines available by the glass so that customers can expand their palate. She also hosts a wine tasting on the first Saturday evening of each month during which she showcases two more unusual or higher priced wines (¥1,800 for two glasses). Wine by the glass starts at ¥720 and ¥3,600 by the bottle (if you buy them to take away, you get 20 percent discount). Peruse the predominately French bottles, but look out for the beautiful floral-painted labels of Shion Winery, a natural winery located in Yamanashi Prefecture.
