Meguro: Bar
Perhaps it's the
chic, modern decor
or the DJ booth at
the front of the
bar, but for some
reason Another8
seems to attract a
more stylish and
cosmopolitan crowd
than your typical
beer bar. In addi-
tion to seven or
eight taps of craft
beer they also serve
a diverse selection
of eight well-chosen
craft sake on any
given day. Another
draw is the food,
which is several
steps up from the
usual bar fare.

Although main-course
dinner items seem to
be limited to ribs,
there are lots of
enticing tapas-style
snacks like roast
cauliflower, deep-
fried prawns and
ratatouille - all of
which are very tas-
ty. The eight beer
taps dispense a
rotating selection
of mostly Japanese
craft beers, includ-
ing at least one or
two from the up-and-
coming Kyoto Brewing
Company. (Sometimes
one of the taps is
devoted to wine.)
Beers come in three
sizes, ranging from
Y700 for a small
glass to Y1200 for a
pint. Order your
food and drinks at
the entrance counter
and pay as you go.

The interior is
tastefully minimal-
ist - more like an
art gallery than a
beer joint - with a
bustling standing
area up front and
ample seating in
back. There's even a
tiny bit of outdoor
seating, and the
front doors and
windows are open to
the elements whenev-
er Tokyo weather
permits. Friday is
DJ night from 7-
11pm. Another8 is
the sister shop of
the Before9 beer and
sake bar in Kyoto,
which has a similar
menu and decor.
