in Roppongi, Akasaka & Around

Pronounced teh-zeh, but often just referred to as 'the library bar' (because the walls are lined with books) this long-time favourite haunt has a classic bar menu. Ignore it. Instead, opt for a seasonal cocktail (from ¥1500), choosing one or two fruits from the basket on the counter and a liquor base – it's rare to be disappointed.

Flame torches mark the spot; cover charge ¥500. Book ahead for the coveted sofa seats on the 2nd floor.
