Dassai Bar 獺祭Bar 23
There's a ton of sake selection in Japan and you won't even know where to start. But one of the most popular sake in Japan is Dassai! If you've never heard of it and want to get a taste of it, there's a Dassai Bar 23 just 4 minute walk from Ginza-Itchome Station.
On the ground level, there's a bar for tasting and also a shop to purchase their sake. There's a ￥1,000 cover charge per person for the tasting bar and it includes a small appetizer to nibble on while tasting their sake. We opted for their ￥2,000 tasting set which includes 20ml pour of Dassai 50, 39 and 23. Typically the smaller the number, the more premium the sake is.
There's also a new sake called Dassai Beyond that's top of the line. The bottle itself costs over ￥30,000 a bottle but we decided to order 1 glass for tasting but that alone was ￥6,500 for 40ml pour. It was really pricey, but definitely super premium sake.
There's the actual sake bar on the second floor so if you're looking for a chic bar to chill at night, you can certainly head up to the second floor.
