Shot Bar Zoetrope ゾートロープ
Shot Bar Zoetrope is hidden in the back alleys of Nishi-Shinjuku. It's on the 3rd floor of a commercial building so we almost missed the entrance. Although it's so hidden, it's packed with Japanese whisky lovers since it offers over 250 varieties which some are no longer available in the market.
We visited Shot Bar Zoetrope in 2014 and 2015 so they still had a lot of rare whiskies available like Ichiro's Malt Deck of Cards. I highly doubt they had any of that left available though. But some house rules don't change, best to go in small groups as seats are limited, no nosing straight from the bottle, ask the owner if you can take a picture of the bottle and a cover charge of ￥600 per person.
The average price has gone up to ￥5,000～￥5,999 per person as it still offers some rare whiskies like Hibiki 30 years and Nikka Taketsuru 35 years. Despite the price, it's a really popular whisky bar so if you want to skip the line up, best to go earlier!
