Cocktails on the terrace - Kyoto
SENT JAMES CLUB: Cocktails on the terrace Sent James Club Review

There are 2 Sent James Clubs in Kyoto. One in Honten and one in Ponto-cho.
I went to the Ponto-cho one with my friend (who is I might add crazy about jazz). But Im not and you dont have to be a jazz person to come here!

Its a nice, mellow bar. Dark wooden interior. Flickering candlelights to set that jazzy mood.. But the music is played very low - perfect background music!
AND!! They have a terrace overlooking Kamogawa river. Perfect for a hot summers eve! If it should get chilly, they hand out blankets.

The drinklist is impressive with many exciting cocktails. A bit pricy. But worth it!

It's open
Mon - Sat: 7pm to 2am
Sun: 5pm to midnight

There's a 600yen cover charge and extra if you want to sit on the terrace.

Dress Code: Smart.

Address: Ponto-cho runs parallell with Kamo river.

Theme: Eating and Drinking

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars

McLoughlin’s Irish Bar: Cold Guinness & Panoramic views Tadg's Irish Bar (Formerly McLoughlin's) Review

A good selection of international beers, wines, spirits and reasonably priced Irish & European cuisine goes very well with the panoramic views of East Kyoto.

Relaxed atmosphere makes McLoughlin’s Irish Bar a fine choice for both a late night snack and a cold Guinness on a weekend or a glas of wine after work.

6pm - 1am (until 3am on Fri & Sat)

Address: 8F Empire Bldg. on Kiyamachi, north of Sanjo

Phone: 212-6339
