Though we counted ten taps, there were only six on the go when we went, and three of those were standard Baird Beer brews, plus two Miyagi beers along with an Outsider Brewing tap as well. It was not an extravagant nor diverse range of beers; however, the safety of the beers was well-selected as it meant there was decent selection of styles and taste. Beers came in three sizes: a pint glass, 500ml, costs ¥1080, while a 1/2 pint, 250ml, costs ¥540, with both prices including tax. There is also a three-set sampler option where you get three 1/4 pint glasses for ¥1080. We plumped for the last option as we were indecisive and wanted to drink everything.The food at Blue Room varies from simple tapas style food, such as celery marinated in garlic oil, to pasta and pizza dishes that are prepared in front of you. For such a small shop, we were impressed with Blue Room’s full size pizza oven that occupies about 1/8th of the bar/cooking area along with an area for base preparation. Next time we come, we’ll definitely be having some of the pizza here though the prices ranged quite drastically. Tax was included in the price of both beer and food and there was also no table charge! Yay!
Blue Room One Paragraph Review
If you’re looking for a safe place to try some craft beer then Blue Room is right up your avenue. After a long day of temples and shopping on one of Japan’s busiest pedestrian streets, Blue Room is a good excuse to dive off of the main street and relax with some beer and jazz. You never know, you might get lucky with a live gig.
