    Very bad service, unpleasant, stuck up, treated customer like low class citizens. Not a good bartender, does not have knowledge to make a simple drink such as black Russian

    Maybe my first mistake was ordering a Jin and tonic. Maybe Google translate didn't serve either of us well. But I felt like being the only person in the bar, I was talked down to the whole night. As someone familiar with business, you don't want to disrespect your only customer, and I felt somewhat disrespected at every turn. Because I don't drink whiskey often I didn't know what to drink or where to start. I would have maybe been better off getting a 200 yen drink from the combini, than I would have being somewhat talked down to from 12am till 1am. But again what do I know? Overall the host seemed slightly snobby. But again maybe I am just somewhat low class. Out of all the kind, receptive, and generous people in Takayama, this guy was the most cold, unrelenting, and unforgiving people I could have met, it seemed. 3 stars is a generous review on my part, in my low class opinion.

    Stumbled across this place on our first night in Takayama. What a great experience. The bartender, Kama G, is very attentive and we communicated through Google translate. He makes a great margarita!

    Had the best time in this hidden hole-in-the-wall. Spent the entire time communicating through Google translate with the super friendly and enthusiastic owner. Shared whiskey, cigars and brandy. Highly reccomend if you stumble across this amazing place!
