Time Out Says

Beyond the rowdier pubs is the navy blue haven of Sasuke. Anyone in need of free wi-fi, a stiff drink or simply a break from the chaos of Kabukicho will appreciate the understated beauty of this hideout. With roughly 250 different kinds of spirits, sake and shochu, this intimate establishment offers what is perhaps the most extensive drinks list you will find in Golden Gai.

The bar also features a sleek tatami loft available to anyone at no extra charge. The loft is low enough for the barman to pass your drinks up to you from behind the bar, but anyone above average height might have a hard time crouching to avoid bumping their head on the ceiling
