Baker Street 221B in Tokyo? Look for it in Minato Ward!

I am a lifetime fan of Sherlock Holmes. Although it may seem a bit out of date, I really like Arthur Conan Doyle and his most popular fictional character, even played by Benedict Cumberbatch!  I have never expected to see Baker Street in Tokyo, but here it is, in Minato Ward! Located in Shirokane, this bar is not a Sherlock museum or something like that. It is a bar, finely embellished with the bears in the great detective’s outfit and other accessories.Bakers Street 221BIn Japanese it is called Bekasutoritoniniichibi (ベーカーストリート221B). Looks like old good England, doesn’t it? They also have a specialty “Sherlock Holmes” cocktail on the menu.Baker Street 221BAs for the foods, there is a variety of dishes at Baker Street 221B. I haven’t visited there yet, because usually walk past it around noon. Of course, they offer lunches as well, but not getting a Sherlock Holmes cocktail? No way! They have fish and chips, steaks, and even some Japanese dishes like omuraisu (omelette with chicken and rice). As a bar, Baker Street 221B also boasts cocktails with seasonal fruits and dessert cocktails (e.g. Grasshopper with mint cream, chocolate liqueur, and cream, shaken with ice).

The atmosphere is very British-style!Baker Street 221BBakers Street 221B
