Square's Cafe (NOW CLOSED)


A quick post on a cafe in an area that is pretty empty on the tokyobeedrinker map at the moment. I was not aware of this place till Davido told me about it. Thanks a lot Davido for the many tips for new places you have given me. A short post because it's probably not somewhere you would travel across town for, but if you are in the area and thirsty, it works pretty well.

- 15 taps of Japanese craft beer. Although not all were available when I visited, but that was a Saturday lunchtime, so probably not prime beer drinking time. Served in three sizes, 240ml, 360ml and 480ml. Prices range from ¥600-¥650 (S), ¥850-¥900 (M) and ¥1050-¥1100 (L). Beer flight of four 120ml glasses available for ¥1200.
- Decent range of breweries, not just focusing on cheap kegs. Shiga Kogen were in there, which is good by me. Bottle selection is much less interesting than the taps and focuses on world beers. The kind of stuff you would expect to find in a bigger supermarket.
- Primarily a cafe, so lots of people there eating lunch and drinking coffee, but they are fine with you just drinking beer. No cover charge!
- Big place. A few counters and lots of seating. Too many to count to be honest. Including the patio, it must be approaching 100 I guess.

So, if you find yourself in Ota-ku with a thirst, this is the place to go. Not sure how often their taplist changes, but it's a decent selection. It has satisfyingly long opening hours. This is another place you can drink during the day. It has a slight family restaurant feel to it, but it's a perfectly nice place to spend a little while drinking some nice beers. Oh, and a quick tip. Leave the JR station by the east exit. The south one takes you a very long way round.
