Night Owl is one of the few liquor stores in Tokyo where you can purchase alcohol by volume. Take home an ever-changing range of local and international craft beers, wine, cider and kombucha in reusable growler containers. Bring your own, or purchase one at the store – sizes range from 250ml to 2L. Plus, you can always sample a few brews before making a purchase. Check the website to see which drinks are on tap today.
If beer and wine aren't your thing, Night Owl has you covered, too. There's an eclectic roster of obscure yet enticing spirits on offer, ranging from Tasmanian whisky to Italian aperitifs and German gin. The lineup is always changing, but we notice there are often a few bottles of absinthe on the shelf, including special bottles produced for Ebisu's trio of cocktail bars: Trench, Tram and Triad.
