Finished with work and looking for a place to wind down in the evening? Tired of the usual izakaya? Why not experience one of Tokyo’s newest Japanese-style gastropub/sports bars? Check out THE PUBLIC SIX in Roppongi.
THE PUBLIC SIX pride themselves as the perfect international gastropub and sports bar experience. It is the perfect spot to meet with friends any night of the week for a beer and a plate.
And what plates they are! Nearly every item in their English menus are pub classics made fresh. BEHOLD!
Food at THE PUBLIC SIX
You CANNOT have a pub without Fish and Chips. THE PUBLIC SIX uses Pacific cod fried to golden perfection. It is accompanied by a house-made tartar sauce that will leave your mouth watering, waiting for that second bite. (¥1200)
Looking for something “greener”? Their Grilled Caesar Salad is made from fresh Romaine lettuce from Nagano. (¥1200)
Our recommendation would have to be the Grilled Roll Steak. This delectable item is made from a ribeye steak from the U.S. and is served with an Awajishima onion sauce. (¥2600)
And for dessert, a French classic is available… with a Japanese twist. The Roasted Green Tea Crème Brulee is a sweet treat well worth the trip. (¥600)
Can’t decide what to eat? Try out a “Public Course” and taste a number of items! There are two options for the Public Courses: For 2,000¥ you can get the Casual Course a.k.a. the “PUB 4” and try a set four items. Want to go for even more food? The Premium Course, a.k.a the “GASTRO 7,” is ¥4,000 and is essentially a 7 course meal!
Craft Beer at THE PUBLIC SIX
The most essential item on any pub or bar menu is the beer, and THE PUBLIC SIX does not disappoint.
The Public Six offers six Japanese craft beers all on tap, each different from the others. Their selection includes golden and white ales, a lager, an IPA, a stout, and a fruit beer.
And if beer isn’t your thing, THE PUBLIC SIX also has a wide assortment of other selections, including nihonshu and sochu.
They even offer a Nomihoudai (all you can drink) that you can add onto either of the Public Courses! Two hours for ¥2000, and for ¥3000 you can try all their craft beers and their nihonshu and sochu!
Cigars at THE PUBLIC SIX
So you’ve had your fish and chips and you’ve had your fill on the great food and the craft beer, what could you use to end your great night out? How about finishing it off with a classy smoke?
THE PUBLIC SIX has ten different cigars available for purchase. Their handy Cigar Menu rates how strong each one is and how long it takes to smoke through one. Don’t want to be caught halfway through a 3,500¥ Cohiba Robustos when you have to be somewhere in an hour, right?
Not that you’re going to want to leave anytime soon. With good food, great beer, and an after-meal cigar, THE PUBLIC SIX is going to be your new favorite after-work hangout!
