ING Bar Tips (4)

ING: Luv the CRUSH

Absolutely my FAVOURITE bar in Kyoto. A nice mix of Japanese on the Fringe and Travelers come together.
ING is a small bar on the 2nd floor of a building on Kiyamachi just south of Hammid Kebaab. It is small and tends towards being crowded but the Owners are fantastic, the food is good and the beer is cheep.
The besr rockING collection in Kyoto too!

very very popular on Saturdays with good reason: ING - A foreigner bar that isn't foreign

There are some well-known "foreigner" pubs in Kyoto, none of which I am too keen on. A little too much testosterone, bad service and bad music. This is a small cozy (although on Saturday nights VERY smoky!) pub. Hako-san and his wife are the friendliest owners who never forget a name or a favorite song. Yes, if you like rock classics, chances are it will be available to be played at your request. The beer is cheap at just around 500Yen for a large bottle. The food especially the salads and cheese-sticks (deepfried cheese!) are delicious considering the tiny cooking space out back. Another good thing is that as the night wears on and seating space becomes limited, you will be sharing tables with strangers who usually go on to become friends.

ING Bar: Smokin Hell

ING bar was defiantly a traditional small bar with seating for around 30 people (crammed) that has friendly staff/owners and tunes rocking out, cheap beer and a good singalong however if you are a non smoker run for the hills, within 10 mins of being there you will smell like an ash tray, and we were not there on a busy night, eventually this become to bad to handle and had to leave.

The bar is a bit rough around the edges on the fit out which obviously is a family built business, the bar seemed to pull a crowd of all sorts from the weird and wonderful to drunk japense and westerners.

Is in a good location of other bars so is worth a pop in if u can handle the smoke.

ING: Kiyamachi Nightlife

Great small restautant/bar located in the heart of Kyoto's Kiyamachi. Excellent place to relax with friends without the typical pick-up bar scene.
