This charming cellar-bar, hidden in the relaxed Hatagaya neighbourhood near Shibuya, specialises in natural wine. But don’t let that newfangled wine term scare you: if you’re unfamiliar with the selection on offer, simply specify red, white or sparkling, and trust the recommendations of the store's knowledgeable staff.
The remarkable interior is a cavernous, all-blond timber room, with the cellar set further back from the bar through an enormous porthole-like entrance. This commanding feature creates a dramatic contrast to the clean, linear design of the surrounding space.
There are two long communal tables with seats to enjoy your wine, as well as some standing room areas. Glasses start from ¥1,000, or you can select a bottle from the cellar and drink it in-situ for ¥3,000 corkage. For snacks, there’s a house-made cheese and cured-meat plate as well as a selection of small dishes from local French and Italian restaurants run by the owner’s friends.
