Hicra Asakusabashi: Beer bar

This small neigbhorhood bar has a stylish, minimalist decor and specializes in craft beers and highball cocktails. The ten taps dispense beers from well-regarded breweries like Full Sail, Sierra Nevada, Outsider and Shiga Kogen, while the highball menu offers a good assortment of whiskies and your choice of five different soda-water mixers.

In spite of the small kitchen area, the food menu is quite a bit better than that of most bars, with appetizing snacks like garlic-fried shrimp and marinated swordfish, available in both full and half-size portions. Both beer and food prices are a bit higher than average, with medium-size beers going for Y900-1100. Currently it's the only place serving craft beer in the immediate Asakasubashi area, and as such it could be a good stop on a bar-hopping tour of the neighborhood.
