Time Out says

If you want to sample a bunch of different sake in one sitting, this is the place to be. Brightly lit and filled on weeknights with a largely salaryman crowd, Meishu Centre is dotted with freestanding tables all set with three small glasses ready for the tasting flight: you browse the walls of sake, then flag down one of the staff to fill your glasses with your selection. The prices start from ¥200 for a glass of sake, and if you get three at a time, you get a ¥100 discount.

The vibe here is relaxed and jovial, with swing jazz playing over the speakers. Regular patrons interact with the staff, openly comparing sake, and if you’re feeling peckish, the fridges are stocked with old-school snacks (think potato salad, vegetable pickles, pickled squid, etc) that pair well with sake. Sake bottles are arranged by prefecture, and the offerings change with the seasons and according to new releases. If you find one you really like, you can also buy a bottle to take home.
