Recently renewed and relocated, No (the abbreviation for ‘number’) now finds its home at the Uehara's new Cabo complex. Situated on the ground level, this café and bar welcome guests to whip out a laptop and fire off some emails with a coffee or a cocktail in hand. The redesigned interior boasts a contemporary take on Japanese aesthetics – think slatted blond timber panels, clean lines, and minimalistic decor.
The cocktail list is the handiwork of bar consultant and bartender Soran Nomura, whose experience spans The SG Club, Fuglen Tokyo and Ao Bar in Tokyo. He’s created an impressive list of cocktails (from ¥1,100 to ¥1,500) that changes seasonally. Past menus have included the No 4, a short cocktail of dark rum, pinot noir syrup, walnut liqueur, lemon and oat milk, alongside classics a decadent old fashioned. Plus, there are also similarly creative mocktails (all ¥900). There are also similarly creative mocktails numbered from one to five (all ¥900).
The full cocktail menu gets going from 2pm, but if you want to start early, there’s a daytime cocktail list featuring lighter tipples like an ume spritz, coffee gin and tonic and seasonal beer. Coffee and tea are ¥500 to ¥600, which are perfect with a slice of carrot cake, banana bread or classic croissant (¥470). No's daytime menu also offers bites like egg sandwiches (¥900) and Niboshi ramen (¥950) for more substantial savory options.
