Gion Finlandia Bar
This stylish Gion bar in an old geisha house is a great place for a civilised drink in Southern Higashiyama. The 1st floor is decorated with Finnish touches while the upstairs retains a Japanese feeling, with sunken floors and tatami mats. There’s a wide selection of vodka on offer here. The cover charge is ¥500 and you can expect to pay around ¥3000 for a few drinks.
