If sampling sake, umeshu, or maybe a whisky highball are on your list when you're visiting the land of the rising sun, here's some unique places to grab a beverage!
Penguin Bar Ikebukuro
The Penguin Bar in Ikebukuro definitely brings the quirkiness to the Tokyo bar scene. Their website specifically mentions that they take great care of the penguins they have there, ensuring they have ample space and plenty of time to rest behind the scenes - so they're not always on show. It also has a link to the details about the owners animal handling credentials, which put my mind at ease a bit more!
Their drink menu includes a wide range of cocktails, sake, umeshu, highballs and more. They also offer a "Penguin Course" that offers all you can drink for a two hour period as well as a set food menu.
Bar Black Sheep
As the bar is located on a smaller back street, it's helpful to map it out before you go. The street address for Bar Black Sheep is 2 Chome Dogenzaka, 渋谷区 Tokyo 150-0043 if you're using Google Maps!
They also have a Facebook page you can check out here.
Reservations are recommended here as it is quite a popular and well known spot. It's quite easy to do that on their website though. And if for nothing else, it's worth checking out the menu section on their website to see what I mean about some of the nausea-inducing cuisine they offer!
Their address for Google Maps is 〒150-0043 Tokyo, 渋谷区Dogenzaka, 2−13−5 ハーベストビルディング.
