Great bar, supposedly the oldest western bar in Tokyo (since 1880) but surprisingly with very few if any westerners. We had the signature Denki Bran snaps:ish and a beer. Great place to hang out In a completely in-fancy way! PS: You order and pay at the entrance to get vouchers, then find a place and you are served.

Went as it came up in a few guide books. You order and pay on arrival on ground floor, receive tokens, find a sit then give your tokens to the server. Once I'd worked this out had a great time.
Tried the Denki Bran, sort of Brandyish but quite pleasant and also a beer and pork tonkatsu all good.You don't really go here for the food but it was surprisingly good. Great atmosphere, would be a good spot for a few drinks in a group (if you could find a table), unlike anywhere else I went in Tokyo. Recommended for something a little different with few westerners.

We went to Kamiya as we really wanted to sample the special Denki Bran - the legendary cocktail of Asakusa. It did not disappoint and I liked it very much. We didn't have any food as we had already eaten. The place was very cheerful and lively. We shared our table with a couple of local Japanese people. I liked the bar as I felt comfortable there.

We stopped in this place due to a mention in the guide book. The second floor has the bar/restaurant area. This was described as a western style bar, which is accurate but we were the only westerners in the place - which was quite enjoyable. Food was good, beer was cheap and the crowd was lively. We had a very good meal here.

Poor quality food and unfriendly service. We went here based on a travel book recommendation regarding old time atmosphere. We saw none of what was described. There are hundreds of much better choices in the same neighborhood.
