The original concept of CHILL LABO AKASAKA is to have all-you-can-taste drinking experience.
キーポイント :If you are wondering about the name, the owner’s major was pharmaceuticals, so he chose the name from that industry. He wanted to create a place to experiment with flavors just as is done in a lab. At CHILL LABO AKASAKA, you will not be served sake the standard 180ml sake serving but a half-size 90ml serving so you can try and taste many sakes until you find your favorites.
The owners, both fluent in English are a couple who spent time in Sydney, where they adopted the “chill out” culture. They naturally wanted to include this vibe in their bar. Comfy sofas, chairs, 2 projectors and chill music accompany the bar experience. The owner is a sake lover he will be delighted to make a special selection for each customer visiting based on their preferences. Twice a month an English woman, a sake lover, herself, will come to the bar to entertain guests, introducing tailored selections of sake and giving her best recommendations.
