Story & Recommendation
A bar with quality service that represents the pinnacle of what Kyoto has to offer
Located near Kyoto city hall and next to the Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto, Bar K6 is a well known veteran of the Kyoto bar scene. Upon ascending the stairs and heading inside, you’ll find a bar wrapped in a mature atmosphere backlight with a faint orange glow. Founded in 1993, Bar K6 doesn’t have the longest history; however, it’s become such a popular, prominent, and staple of the Kyoto bar scene that when asked about bars in the city, locals will be likey to throw out the name before anything else. With so many Kyoto bartenders finding their start at K6, the bar has also come to be called the “training ground for bartender.” With over 2,000 types of alcohol on offer, including rare single malts and aged whiskeys, you can enjoy a genuinely huge range of drinks. However, the bar’s staple cocktail is the humble old gin and tonic. The reason being that it’s said one’s ability to make a truly good gin and tonic is a marker of a good bartender. K6’s style of gin and tonic holds back on sweetness with a mix of lime juice soda added tonic. Another reason for this bar’s popularity is in the quality of the food menu too. Whether it be your first stop or second, or you’re coming alone or with a group; it doesn’t matter your situation, you’ll be able to enjoy K6 no matter what. If you’re looking to experience a wonderful night in Kyoto, then Bar K6 is where you need to be.
