Haguruma, Kagurazaka(歯車 神楽坂), Tokyo, Japan

This bar is like Zen, but very hard to understand.

The darkness of this bar was very heal full. We were not able to recognise the variety of the liquors in this bar, there is no menu book and no display of the bottle in the bar. In the darkness, I had found three candles in the back shelf and the rough detail of the bartender. When I looked the fire on the candle, I had travelled into the dreamily stoic atmosphere with the cocktail. The bar had very geek customer to love into the barman. The interior was very authentic but the sound was only from the refrigerator you cannot see. The sound of refrigerator had not been nice.

On my visiting, I ordered the Gimlet. The barman served one goblet of gimlet, very far from the recipe of the classical gimlet. The taste was just bitter and no sour and no sweet in the glass. The gimlet, I really ideal, is the balance among the bitter, sour and sweet. He had served me the gin with very bitter lime juice. I think, the barman cannot identify what the gimlet is from the view point of the history or the literature of this cocktail.

The barman looks to have  the common sense of the public, but the commonsense of the cocktailology. Thus I have just one drink, all I feel from one glass was very unsatisfied. There are a lot of idea about the cocktail the barman serve in each bar, in each customer.

In conclusion, I cannot recommend to visit this bar for just your interest, but there is something to entertain you from the bar.  I would like you to find something interesting or satisfactory on your visiting.
