This unassuming Japanese-leaning small bar located near Kensington Street's Spice Alley is well versed in the art of making a great highball. It also has an extensive menu of shochu, sake and Japanese whisky.
Blossom Bar has just six indoor seats, much like Tokyo's hidden high-rise cocktail bars, so it's not easy to nab a spot here. But, it's well worth it once you do (there are also more tables outdoors).
Drinks-wise, the Kinobi Highball showcases Japanese dry gin, zesty yuzu tonic and cherry and peach bitters.
Snack on seared salmon nigiri in between sips — it's the perfect combination to appreciate the technical skills and well-executed simplicity required to make both Japanese cocktails and sushi.
