This tiny shop serves as a standing bar, specialty liquor shop and gourmet grocer, with a bit of art gallery thrown in for good measure. Five taps serve craft beer from Japan and abroad (Y500 for a smallish pour), or you can bring in your own growler to fill up and bring home. Located just a minute from Ebisu Station, the shop is on the ground floor of a small residential building.

On the retail side Night Owl carries a limited selection of obscure beers that are hard to find elsewhere - Moa from New Zealand and Mountain Goat from Australia among them - mostly priced at over Y1000 for a small bottle. You can also find artisanal bitters, various absinthes, expensive chocolates and other gourmet foods. Note that in spite of the name, Night Owl closes at 9pm (8pm on weekends).
