Jolly's: Ebisu
Jolly's Ebisu: Liquor shop

Billing themselves as a liquor store and sound studio, Jolly's has been selling booze here in Ebisu since the 1920s. Nowadays they stock a decent selection of mostly US craft beers in cans and bottles - maybe forty in all, starting at around Y500 but climbing in price for some of the rarer and more exotic selections.

You can drink your beer right here at one of the tiny tables in the standing-bar area, or take them home. They also serve coffee and cocktails, soft drinks and simple snacks like hot dogs and Spam musubi. Children seem to be welcome. The studio area just behind the bar is often busy with bands coming to or from rehearsal sessions.

Shibuya-ku, Higashi 3-15-12.
Open 2pm-midnight. Closed Sundays.
