Review of Bar High Five

Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We were looking for a good cocktail and this place looked to be perfect... and it was! The service was excellent; the bartender asked what spirits we liked and then crafted a unique cocktail to each of our tastes. Also gave us good advice on Japanese whiskey. A first class extablishment.

This is my second time visiting Bar High Five, I visited them when they were in a smaller venue, now they have moved into a slightly bigger basement location in Ginza not far from where they used to be. The service is very on point and the hosts are very interactive and the cocktails are amazing! If you are lost just have an old fashioned with a Japanese whiskey. You just can’t go wrong.

The bar is at basement floor with no windows and a stinky elevator ride takes you there.
As you enter there are the bar rules right on the wall. By the time we started reading it a non Japanese waitress rushed towards and urged us to stand behind an imaginary line to queue for the table. we were able to see there were few spaces available, however she turned us down saying that the places are reserved which is not true. The bar was recommended by the concierge at four seasons hotel who specifically said that there is no reservation needed. As my husband questioned it she got rude with her answers so we left. This is a fire hazard waiting to happend, as the staircase is closed and you are only able to get there by the elevator.
Definitely avoid. Did not look appealing at all. Rude staff.

First of all I need to mention I am a bartender myself and drank in many bars around Europe

1. That place is shick and they have great selection of liqueur

2. All cocktails are crafted and there is no menu

3. I had 2 cocktail . Negroni and bloody merry. It was bad. Taste really bad

4 service is okay

5 there is lady with a short hair and do all the mixing she is not friendly at all and what she made for me was bad. And they are not that friendly. Atmosphere is not that cool.

6. There is no WiFi and no Internet available there.

I think going there is a mistake
