Apple Martini Bar - Hachioji Station
Apple Martini is a great little Korean-owned bar in downtown Hachioji three streets west of Hachioji Station's North Entrance. This can be a fun spot late in the evening, as it is full of a mix of Japanese and Westerners, enjoying good food and drinks. They play a variety of Western music, and the food is a mix of various Asian dishes and American bar food, offering even simple things like kimchi.
We stopped here on Saturday night, and it was very quiet, but we've heard it can be a lot of fun late in the evening. The bartenders often entertain guests with flaming drinks and twirling bottle like in the old 80s movie, Cocktail.
Here is a video someone else posted about Apple Martini a few years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJDFqZyt-TA&feature=player_embedded
The Hub Pub - Hachioji Station
The Hub is a chain of British pubs in Japan with about 25 Tokyo locations, 5 more throughout the broader Kanto Plains area, and 6 other locations in Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, and Nagoya. I have visited a number of Hub locations in the Tokyo area including Ikebukuro and Roppongi.
I recently visited the hub location in Hachioji. This Hub, located less than 100 meters from the station, is one of the nicer locations I have visited. This Hub is located in the basement of the street that runs at an angle to the northwest of the Hachioji Station. I had a one pint Hub Ale for 860 Yen and fried scallops with balsamic "sause" for 460 Yen. The beer is one of the better Japanese brews, and the scallops were tasty, but served in a very small portion.
Japanese Restaurant: Have some sake!
There must be 1000 of restaurants in Hachioji. Some a very good some only good. This is one of the bigger ones. Here people not only come to eat but also to drink :)
