The Doulton Bar, Tokyo, For The City’s Most Exceptional Whisky
It is often in the smallest bars in Tokyo that the biggest surprises are held. Located in a faceless building, the Doulton Bar is one of the city’s best addresses, only to be shared among insiders.
When night falls, it is the perfect time to discover Japanese whiskey, head to Ginza, one of the capital’s most exclusive areas and the attractive Doulton Bar. Established almost fifty years ago, only twelve seats in the darkened space welcome visitors from around the world, who are all sure to find their tipple of choice among the 700 whisky varieties available. For the more indecisive, there is a house special, the ‘Kokuzawa’, a martini with Beefeater gin and Noilly Prat vermouth, brewed without ice and just a drop of bitter orange, a zest of lemon and an olive. Served in an ice-cold glass, a perfectly refreshing cocktail to start the night.
