The entrance may not be that obvious if you're coming from Shibuya Station, but Sakestand is all the better for it. This narrow, standing-only bar hidden away on the second floor on a side street off Dogenzaka is a little gem for those looking to immerse themselves in the wonderful world of sake. They serve a changing lineup of sake from across the country, presented in wine glasses with a small tag attached that states all the info (including the name in English) you need to find it again. Small nibbles that go well with the drink are on the menu as well, as are beer and wine if you really can't muster a glass of nihonshu. Head here for a drink after work or before hitting the town for a long night.
