Hangover: Nakano-Sakaue
Hangover Nakano-Sakaue: Beer bar

"Craft beer, craft food" is the raison d'etre of this ambitious beer bar, and they do an excellent job on both counts. There's a well-chosen selection of craft beers from the US and Japan on tap, and they also stock a good number of bottles from breweries like Lagunitas, Coronado and Southern Tier.

If you're looking for the perfect beer snack, the kitchen turns out very tasty Buffalo chicken wings, BBQ beef sandwiches, and vegetables and other items fried in craft-beer batters. You even get to choose the craft beer for your batter!

The location is a bit off the beaten track, but it's well worth the trek if you love good beer. Happy hour is 5-8pm, with Y200 off pints, and if you miss your last train home you can stay and drink until 5am every night but Sunday.

Nakano-ku, Chuo 1-51-4.
Open 6pm-1am. Closed Mondays.
