In your quest to discover that perfect hangout in Shibuya, stop by Buchi, a standing bar and restaurant (though it's not technically a true standing bar, since stools are offered). The ground floor of Buchi is the bar area, which is almost always packed, mostly with business-types on their way home from work. Buchi has an extensive alcohol list, the specialty of which is their sakes, with over 24 varieties to choose from. Drink prices are extremely fair, most costing between 500JPY to 800JPY a pop. Descend into the basement area and you'll find more space, with tables and chairs, most likely for those who want a sit-down dinner. The fare is mostly bar food, appetizers and small plates, made to go with your drinks. Price range for each item is 200JPY to 2500JPY.
