Cocktail tasting at Gen Yamamoto was so fun! (This was a TASTING menu for those who are complaining about the portion...) Very interesting set of cocktails in beautiful glasses in a cool environment. First course was with sparkling sake from miyagi prefecture, tomato with garnish...More

I really wish I had read previous reviews on other peoples experiences as this was one of the most shockingly poor cocktail experiences I have ever had. I was looking forward to this so much and was completely let down. A six course cocktail menu...More

I genuinely nearly choked when I read the previous glowing reviews on this bar. It’s a real tourist trap and you leave feeling you’ve been robbed. The bar tender is nice but: 1. There is zero atmosphere. We went on a weeknight so maybe it’s...More

Gen prepares delicious and creative cocktails based on seasonal ingredients. His small 8 seat bar was carefully designed to focus on the art of the cocktail. 6 different delicious tastes served in unique and beautiful glasses. I felt lucky to experience this and would love...More

My wife and I heard about this place from friends (they had been to japan before and had Gen on their list, but never went). I was super excited that I got a reservation. Gen, the owner, seemed friendly enough when I made the reservation....More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
