Kyoto nightlife—A bar where you can enjoy a quiet and relaxing time with some superb cocktails
Kiyamachi is Kyoto's largest nightlife district, and is located right by the Hankyu Kawaramachi Station.
BAR STAND is located right in the middle of this area, down a narrow alley known as Alleyway 13. The interior offers counter seats only, with a male bartender always ready to serve customers.
The shelves are stocked full of whiskies and liquors, offering a classic bar atmosphere. BAR STAND’s selection whisky contains around 80 different varieties, including Japanese brands such as Yamazaki and Hibiki. We particularly recommend the cocktail shaker drinks prepared by the skilled bartender. The bartender can of course prepare traditional drinks such as Gin & Tonics and Salty Dogs as well, but BAR STAND made cocktails are simply different from the rest. With a unique depth of flavors, each cocktail shows the great care and craftsmanship of the bartender. At BAR STAND, you can relax and enjoy a drink for as long as you like, whether you are on your own or with a friend. BAR STAND is the perfect place to visit after a long day of sightseeing in Kyoto to go through all the wonderful memories of the day.
