I was here very early, so it was very quiet (I was the only one there besides the bartender). Bar opens at 4:30, which is about when I got there. Leaves me with very little idea what the atmosphere is actually like.

The bartender spoke pretty good English, and very kindly provided directions to the Griffon, which has a very limited Belgian selection but a very good Japanese selection.

Belgian selection is excellent for Japan, prices are high outside of Japan but quite reasonable in Tokyo. Quality seems to be well-maintained. Did not try any food (in fact, not totally sure if they serve any).

A very comprehensive range of bottled Belgian beers for a pub in this part of the world. There were three or so draught beers, one of which was Leffe Blonde, and they cost around ¥700 a glass. Bottled beers from the fridge cost around ¥1,000 and all were served in their own branded glassware. They all tasted perfectly fresh and came out of the fridge at the perfect temperature. You pick your beer out of the fridge and take it to the bar to pay. The barman spoke excellent English and was very friendly. We were given some very nice cheese and crackers although I'm not sure if they were complimentary. It had a very cosey dark interior. Very quiet and peaceful on a Monday night. That said I got so drunk I can't remember leaving the place.

Beers I remember:
Nearly all of the Trappist beers and a load more including quite a few lambics. I don't recall there being anything in other than Belgian beer.
