'One bartender can only look after eight patrons at a time, if he's serious about his craft.' That's the maxim adhered to by the owner and head bartender at Shusendo, a counter-only Ginza bar that celebrates 15 years in business this year. The ever-jovial master of customer service works his craft behind a milky white bar made of cherry wood, making every single patron feel right at home. Cocktail specialists will want to go for the gin tonic, but we also liked the Hakushu highball – and the excellent pub grub, which ranged from homemade pickles to sardines in oil and pâté de campagne.
