Had some light bites at a bar on our last night in Japan, Suzanne Bar in Shinsaibashi

Preparing our Yamazaki

All drinks are being served in double-walled stainless steel vessels (http://susgallery.jp/en/). I went to the website checked these vessels don't come cheap.

Left is water and right is our Yamazaki double on the rocks, plate is grilled stingray

More bites

Cute staff

Had 3 more double Hibiki before leaving

Nice bar, nice music and simple food pretty nice too. Suzanne bar is located at part of the Hotel Felice https://goo.gl/maps/SXfPHBYSX8F2
