Worth checking out is the Tokyo Bar in the Tribeca neighborhood of NYC. Not to be mistaken with the cheesy dance club of the same name in Montreal, is the upstairs bar to the B-Flat underground cocktail den. This hip bar sports manga covered walls and “new Japanese comfort food” served tapas style, by chef Kensuke Kuri from Lan.

Definitely pick up a pack of matches as a souvenir or as a nice conversation piece for your coffee table.

Even their sidewalk projected logo is cool.

Here’s their hard-to-find official website: www.tokyobar-nyc.com/”
