Thirty years or so ago, the bar below was a butchers. Falling returns, however, meant a rethink, and so a bar it became. A decision that seems to have been a good one, as not only is it still in operation, but it also has a steady stream of customers.
Filled with cuttings and photos from the owner’s baseball-related past, it’s a happy home-from-home for him, and a similarly happy drinking hole for those who drop in.
A lot of memories there! Looks like a lot of fun too!
Yes, a lot of his life on the walls. And it was — great fun. Very relaxed atmosphere, with people coming and going; all of whom were nice and friendly.
That does look like fun! 🙂
It was. Nice people, good food and cheap booze. Nothing at all to dislike!
Flowers – that seems unusual. Totally changes the mood of the place. And those gilt framed pictures – an odd suggestion of “class” amid the proletarian.
Yeah, the flowers are a nice touch, and the gold frames fascinated us too. Not at all what you’d expect to see.
Looks like a fun place to relax after a long day. Great photos.
Cheers. Yes, it really was. Great host, with equally good food, booze and regulars. Very tough to beat.
do you remember where is this place?
If I remember correctly, it was Nishi-Tokorozawa. Or at least somewhere around there. Can probably get a location on Google Maps if you are keen on going.
