While the atmosphere is decidedly less traditional than that of the former bar, with free wireless Internet, a food menu and bright lighting, Kimura isn’t abandoning the culture behind the ceremonial drink. The dimly lit back room is available for small groups to enjoy ‘awa in the traditional way, sitting in a circle on the floor.
