Open-air boozing, Sumida River views and barbecue come together on the second-floor terrace of the Lyuro hotel. All employees are self-proclaimed pitmasters (barbecue experts) – hence the name of this dog-friendly restaurant and bar – who'll eagerly serve you grilled or smoked dishes including pulled pork and spare ribs to go with some craft beer.
The onsite Kiyoshubashi Brewery produces seasonal brews, and they are complemented by Pitmans's selection of domestic and imported craft beers. There's natural wine on the menu, too, with options made by Fujimaru Winery in Kiyosumi Shirakawa. Pitmans opens bright and early at 7am, but you might want to start with a caffeinated drink by Leaves Coffee Roasters first.
