…a jazz bar. A whiskey jazz bar, to be exact. This place was about as un-Japanese (traditionally speaking) as you can get. The name of the bar was Hello, Dolly (Sorry, couldn't find a good English website.)
(Be warned: The audio for this video is not good, though it nicely shows the inside of the bar.)
Unfortunately, I missed the fine print on the sign outside and didn’t realize that there was pretty hefty seating charge. Whoops. Despite that, we had a great time. Had a fancy drink, enjoyed the atmosphere, and listened to the fantastic jazz quartet.
It was great. If you are looking for a great relaxing finish to a day in Kyoto, I highly recommend this bar!
