Styled on the wildly popular Sake Market, this umeshu and fruit liquor joint stocks over 100 varieties of sweet booze from all over Japan, including strawberry-, peach- and fig-flavoured nihonshu. Now opening its second outpost after debuting in Shibuya last winter, Shugar Market operates on a simple system: pay ¥3,240 at the door and you'll get access to all the spirits in the house – browse freely, pick out any bottle and cup of your choice and pour drinks for yourself and your buddies. Bringing your own food is allowed, and there's even a free-to-use ice cream machine on the premises.
