Good music, atmosphere Very small cocktails. Personnel cheats! They do not provide you with any breakdown of their Bill, just the final amount. We have ordered some items, which never been served. We paid 23 thousand for 7 cocktails!

We walked quite a long distance to have a drink at Hello Dolly, and were disappointed. Slow service, cheesy atmosphere, and terrible cocktails. Do not waste your time! Sorry, Hello Dolly, we really wanted to like you!

Pontocho
Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's
most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow
