A series of bars in Yokohama where women go alone, spelling out encounters with beautiful drinks♡ This time, I visited a certain shop with a different sense of tension than usual.


We visited Bar Noble, the owner of which is world champion Takashi Yamada, who won the world bartending competition. You are the best bartender in the world!! Please always tell me how to order alcohol! When I received it, I was willing to accept it, so I took the plunge.


It is a famous store that some people visit Yokohama for the purpose of drinking here. When I opened the door nervously, I was greeted by a quiet, dignified and truly “noble” atmosphere.

Here is what Mr. Yamada made.


"Bar Noble" original, slightly sweet cocktail "Silky Rose". A cocktail made with orange-flavored vodka and lemon juice, covered with meringue-like egg white foam, and finally sprinkled with rose water for a stylish and stylish drink.


Here is the rose water and the red pepper used as an accent.


Originally, this cocktail was devised for overseas customers who like egg whites. The soft foam feels good on the tongue, and as the name suggests, it is a “silky” drink.


There are also small table seats in front of the counter seats. Next to it, trophies and medals are displayed as proof that they have won numerous awards!


Right next to the entrance, there is also a semi-private room that can be used by 4 to 8 people.

Mr. Yamada, dressed in a white tuxedo, and the Art Nouveau-style interior that was created in the image of an old European castle... "Bar Noble" has a fairly authentic atmosphere, but do you have any female customers? I was worried and asked, "Yes, of course. There are many female customers who use it as a third place apart from work and home." “In order for customers to spend their time in a relaxed manner as a third place, at our store we try to serve customers with a sense of distance and snuggle up to each other.” The bar is my third place... how cool. I will continue my bar training with the aim of becoming such a woman!

While listening to various stories, I ordered the second bowl, which has become a tradition!


This is the seasonal "avocado cocktail".


A cup of homemade rum-infused avocado paste with milk, syrup, and amaretto♡ This is also a creamy, fluffy drink that you can enjoy like a dessert. Recommended for women who like sweets!!

And I heard a lot of wonderful stories this time too. I'd like to introduce a little bit of Mr. Yamada's story. “I think of a bar as a 'modern tea room.' Face to face with the customer → Think about and make a cocktail that suits the customer → Select the appropriate glass and pour it into → The customer tastes it. This flow is unique to Japan. It is the same as the flow of tea ceremony, which is the culture of tea ceremony.I am always conscious of that when I stand in this shop.

Bars are cultures that come from foreign countries... that's all I thought about, but Mr. Yamada's philosophy of intermingling with good old Japanese culture made me learn the depth of bars again!


There is also the saying, “Customers are the mirror of the bartender.” It's said that "you can tell a bar by looking at the customers"...that's true!! I think I understand what you mean by "the frontage is wide, but the threshold is high". It's important to open the door with a little tension while enjoying alcohol and chatting, spending a comfortable time. This moment when I am in the bar becomes part of the atmosphere of the shop. Mr. Yamada, thank you very much for the wonderful talk and thank you for the meal.
