A Hidden Curry and Whiskey Bar in Azabujuban

Azabujuban Yakuzen Curry Shinkai, located just a short distance from the main street of Azabujuban shopping district, is a mysterious and elegant bar. Offering a unique blend of medicinal curry and Japanese whiskey, the establishment welcomes you with a warm and nostalgic ambiance as you descend the staircase and open the door, greeted by the subtle fragrance of spices in the air.

Sharing Japan’s Culinary Culture with the World

In 2010, the owner, Mr.Shinkai, opened his main bar in Azabujuban. Upon opening, Mr. Shinkai became inspired by the popularity of Japanese food culture during his travels to New York. He saw potential in introducing a more authentic and high-quality experience of Japanese food to people overseas. Thus, he established additional branches in Toranomon and Daimon, inviting customers from around the world.

Japanese Whiskey and Medicinal Curry: The Perfect Pairing of Spices

Among the impressive array of bottles lining the shelves, their collection of Japanese whiskey stands out. With over 200 varieties, including extremely rare Japanese finds, the bar invites guests to explore the depth of Japanese whiskey and enjoy stories from the expert bartenders. The carefully crafted medicinal curry, made without wheat flour, is a gluten-free option that has a blend of rich flavors and spices. They also have a delicious vegan curry, made with natural ingredients like shimadofu (Island Tofu). Pair these culinary delights with whiskey or their original cocktails for the perfect harmony of spices.

A Bar for Everyone

Shinkai's flagship store boasts a selection of curated drinks, including whiskey, original cocktails, craft beer, and sake. For non-drinkers, they also serve an amazing variety of the most delicious non-alcoholic cocktails! Whether you seek a nightcap with curry, wish to savor the finest Japanese whiskey, or simply want to immerse yourself in the ambiance of a Japanese bar, Bar Shinkai welcomes you to discover the never-ending richness and depth in both their food and drinks.
