What to Drink: Try the "Special Microbrew" Japanese beer, or choose from Robata-Ya's impressive soju and sake collection, which includes innovative selections like Crazy Milk, Drunken Whale, and Star Rabbit raspberry sparkling sakes.

When to Go: It might only be open for dinner now, but Robata-Ya will soon be catering to the lunch crowd as well. The traditional robata bar is open until the wee hours of the night for late-night stragglers.
