Woman hitori
Bar
And beautiful
A cup

A woman going to a bar in Yokohama, a spell about the encounter with a beautiful cup, going on alone, a series of bars ♡ This time, you can go from "Minato Mirai Station" to neither rain nor snow, and go outside without getting out of the cold Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu Go to the bar "Jax" on the 2nd floor.

The entrance to the bar is behind this wall. (When closed, the door is closed)

The logo mark is based on the image card of Trump's "11 (Jack)", which is the origin of the name "Jacks".

When you step inside the store, you will find a counter, sofa, and table seats inside the spacious store, and a very chic and high-quality space where interior lighting is fashionably created with indirect lighting spreads out.

The decile guys make night faces and greet each other and sit down at their seats... Immediately imagining such an atmosphere in their brains, while a little atrophied to the situation of Onna Hitori, they dare to walk on a fluffy carpet and go inside the store. I aimed for a counter seat.

Waiting there, Mr. Tsudaira, a bartender who won the bronze prize for the second consecutive year in 2016 and 2017 at the Yokohama Cocktail Competition. He said, "Welcome," with a smile,I was relieved of the warm atmosphere. I asked for a recommended cocktail, so I decided to make the first cup immediately

Shake yogurt liqueur, violet liqueur, peach liqueur and grapefruit juice. Divide it with my favorite champagne, and finally drop a grenadine syrup (a syrup consisting of pomegranate juice and sugar) to make "Silent Snow".

It is completed by decorating a star-shaped lemon zest with a sense of Xmas ♡ A beautiful and romantic cup like snow covered in a glass, Tsuhira says, “A flower that listens to the snow melt and waits for spring. The cocktail was originally designed in December 2017 with the image of "the scent of". It's broken with champagne, so it's refreshing and has a moderate sweetness, so it's recommended as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Women who do not drink much can enjoy it!

Authentic for "Jax" In addition to the face called ick bar, there is another face. It's the only place in Minatomirai where you can taste cigars. Yes, it is also a "cigar bar".

Only Havana cigars, which are said to be the highest quality without fragrances, are available in "Jax". Recently, some female customers like cigars... If you're new but want to enjoy the scent, the bartender will give a careful lecture, so please give it a try.

I swallowed up "Silent Snow" in no time and went to the usual second cup. When I wasn't sure what to ask, Tsudaira asked, "What kind of liquor do you like?", so I requested "a cocktail that is not sweet."

This is the second cocktail, "Bamboo". A glass of dry sherry and dry vermouth with a crisp and clear taste.

When I asked about the movement of squeezing ice with a spoon, which is carefully done when making cocktails from the previous time...

“Slightly stirring with a spoon like this is called “stair.” Before making a cocktail, first add water and ice to the shaker and rinse the ice frost with water. It is an image to remove ice horns. After throwing away the water, I put alcohol in the ice cubes to make a cocktail, but how cold the cocktail is and how it can be made without being watery is the bartender's skill. Preparing the ice is very important, and it is also important that the back of the spoon does not touch the glass when steering. It is also important that it can be moved without making a rattling noise." The bartender's movements are truly beautiful and lean. Great!

Now, while having a "bamboo", I showed you something interesting. Suddenly, Mr. Tsudaira took out a dice cup containing 5 dice. What the hell is going on~!?

I moved the dice cup left and right using the counter!

The moment I lifted the dice cup, I suddenly shouted "I'm amazing!" All five dice are stacked in a line!!!!!

Actually, this is a famous technique called "dice stacking" using dice, not magic. Tsudaira also learned from the senior bartenders and practiced many times. As a bartender, it is a practice to make the wrist flexible, and a practice to understand how the liquid moves when you shake the shaker. It used to be performed often at the counter, and customers enjoyed it. "Dice stacking" is a practice method that has been passed down for generations and a performance that will delight customers, and I hope it will be passed on to Tsudaira's junior bartender.

The spacious interior, tasty liquor, Havana cigars and dice stacking, and other adult quirks and luxuries, "Jacks" offers an even more live piano time.

Of course, there is also a certificate when you received the bronze medal at Mr. Tsudaira's "Yokohama Cocktail Competition"! Please check it when you enter the store.

“The bar in the hotel is too high...” Even such a person will be treated gently by Mr. Tsudaira and the staff, so why not take the plunge and open the “Jax” door? Even if you can't order alcohol in a cool way, it's okay (I've tried it!). You can rest assured that Mr. Tsudaira and the staff will listen to you from the counter that always keeps an eye on all customers, and will call you at the timing! Thank you for talking with us! & it was a treat!!
