Welcome to small world
In the sprawling realm of Tokyo, little worlds can be found in even the tiniest of places
In a Sangenjaya backstreet, the distinctive glow from Pigalle’s scarlet-painted walls beckons passersby and regulars alike. Inside the petite space (just 16m2!), counters are topped with flower-filled vases, glittering baubles dangle overhead year-round, sumo shows on the TV screen, and craft beer and cider are sipped at ease. The vibe, says owners Hide and Chie Yamada, feels just like a home.
Although Pigalle is Tokyo's smallest craft beer bar and bottle shop, there are even smaller worlds inside to discover, so join Hide and Chie as they take us on a trip through their bar and its quirky microcosms, starting with the fridge and ending... in the toilet cubicle! Find out how they secured a bottle shop license (Japan’s first), what’s in their fridge (and why), and the wild and wonderful ways in which the unique bathroom space doubles up as both an art gallery and mini nightclub. If you’re ready for the ride, take our hand(s) and pre-order the very first Take away Tokyo book now!
