Top 5 Underground Asakusa bars to grab drinks

Thinking about going out to Asakusa bars for a night out? It’s almost impossible to come to Japan and never explore the beauty of Asakusa. Apart from the traditional side of Asakusa, there are many unique bars and nightlife in Asakusa. If you want to figure out where to drink in Asakusa, you should definitely check these bars out!

This place is the home to some of the most traditional Japanese architecture such as the iconic Kaminarimon gate, Sensoji Temple and geisha houses. In the Nakamise streets packed with more than 50 tiny shops, you’ll find traditional Japanese sweets and gifts that are perfect as souvenirs. You can also devour the savoury dishes of tempura and unagi in the city, after a quick stroll along the Sumida River where you can see the cherry blossoms during in spring. 

Find out more about the different Japanese drinks, Japanese beers, the special strong zero you can get in Japan and how to prepare for a night out in Tokyo.


One of the best ways to explore Tokyo is to visit the local areas and immerse yourself in the local culture.

Although we focus on bars and clubs for FLIP Guide, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit this lil ‘shop when it comes to where to drink in Asakusa. Pink is what you will see at Qulu Qulu but it’s done in a way that doesn’t result in a headache. They serve good cafe food and desserts, and also a few cocktails. It’s a great spot to grab some food before heading on your night out.
