Bar within a Bar - Evening Drink at High Five Pop-up
one of the best in the highly competitive Tokyo bar scene with master Hidetsugu Ueno at the helm as their head bartender. At this pop-up location at the Landmark Mandarin, the venue was extremely cozy but comfortable. Located up at the mezzanine hide-out known as The Shell, the place has only half a dozen seats right at the bar and two small tables seating less than 10 – if you try to walk in and get a drink impromptu, good luck. Behind the bar, Ueno-san and his team of mixologists worked tirelessly with a decent selection of bottles including some unusual ones they brought in from Japan. The bar ran on a limited menu of 14 specialty drinks available, plus a snack menu featuring cured meats from Bellota-Bellota of Spain.
