Tucked into an alleyway, this little Ebisu bar is run by bartender Rogerio Vaz, who is half-Japanese and half-Brazilian with a love for all things absinthe. An equally odd amalgam of influences, the menu is built on obscure classics as well as originals from Trench and influential American bars like San Francisco’s Bourbon & Branch and New York’s Milk & Honey. The backbar is a veritable library of spirits and bitters with a hefty collection of esoteric bar literature stacked atop the bottles. (Bar Trench: 渋谷区恵比寿西1-5-8 1F)
