Bar in Shinjuku & Northwest Tokyo

A must-visit for whisky fans, Zoetrope has some 300 varieties of Japanese whisky behind its small counter – including hard-to-find bottles from small batch distilleries. It's a one-person show and the owner speaks English well. Cover charge ¥600; whisky by the glass from ¥400 to ¥19,000, though most are reasonably priced (around ¥800 to ¥1200) and there are some good-value tasting flights, too.
