Mots Beer Party : The Bottom Line
Koto ward doesn’t have much going for it, but if you are in the area and looking for somewhere to drink, then Mots Beer Party is a good choice for some beers and interesting food, if you don’t mind offal that is. The bar often has a good selection of beer on with some smaller breweries from across Japan that can be quite hard to find. While Mots Beer Party does allow smoking, it is outside away from non-smokers and there is no table charge either Besides that, I didn’t notice any free WiFi in the area.
Mots Beer Party : The Full Review
Monzennakacho, the area in which Mots Beer Party is located in, doesn’t have much going for it. A few years back, I had the misfortune of drinking the “local beer” which kind of put me off from ever going back. Mots Beer Party though opened in November 2021, well after that unfortunate beer incident so perhaps the area is changing for the better.
Mots Beer Party is located near Toyocho station on the Tozai line, though you could also get there by going to Kiba station, also on the same train line though keep an eye out for this place as it’s located down a small alleyway that is very easy to miss if you’re not careful.
Mots Beer Party : Atmosphere & Interior
Mots Beer Party is a tiny little place inside – there’s space for around 10 people inside, though that is a tight 10 people inside with some seating at the bar counter, and a few others standing around. The smell of the food resonates throughout the bar – more about that in a bit – but the bar does feel like a nice little cozy addition to the area which is much needed in this area with jovial conversations ringing out across. The reason for Mots Beer Party being so small compared to other places is that it is a renovated residential building, though it’s unknown whether the owner of the bar used to live here or not.
Mots Beer Party : Beer & Tap Information
Mots Beer Party has 6 taps of craft beer on, though there is a split between domestic and imports but usually there is a leaning towards domestic. The beers come in three sizes: special small (150 ml) from 650 yen, small (275 ml) from 650 yen, and large (475 ml) from 1,000 yen, with imports being prices slightly higher than domestic beers. There wasn’t any happy hour at Mots Beer Party, nor any beer flights, but at that price for small beers, it’s not a bad chance to try some, or maybe all, of the beers on tap. There is also a small bottle collection at the bar with no corkage fee for any of the bottles or cans in stock, though Mots Beer Party does not have a takeaway license, so the beers can only be drunk on-site.
Mots Beer Party : Food Information
Let’s get this out of the way, the Mots in Mots Beer Party means motsu, which is the Japanese word for offal, so if you’re a bit squeamish and can’t imagine eating heart, kidney, liver, etc then Mots Beer Party really isn’t the place for you. Thankfully, it’s not the traditional motusyaki or motsunabe, which unfortunately I got a case of food poisoning from once in Japan, but the food is pretty well made here. There are some more standard choices, with some pickles and nuts on the menu, but the menus are all in Japanese so if either you need to be able to read Japanese or have someone with you who can read Japanese.
