Agoo, Daimon

At EOITwJ, when it rains, it pours. And when it pours, it's generally Belgian beer. We like to think that we know a lot of the Belgian places around Tokyo, so as a nightcap, we were excited to hear that there was a hitherto-unknown outlet nearby the Hippo. Unknown to us at least...Metropolis reviewed it previously (and I now feel good about my writing style. I think the adjective you'll be looking for there is 'florid'.).

Almost full when we got there, Agoo was pretty happening on a Friday late-ish night - crowded, smoky, noisy, beery. Hey, it's a bar! (Although I have to give props to Delirium Reserve again for the non-smoking room.) Another thing I'd like to grumble about is the metal 'tractor seat' stools (does that only make sense to country boys like me?), which are hard on the bum for extended sitting.

The beer menu is in the mid range - several pages, probably nudging 30 varieties, with only a couple on tap. Nothing too far out of the ordinary, but all the basics are covered (and Kwak in appropriate glasses, which is always fun) and the prices are...well, stratospheric, but if you didn't know that, you haven't been to a Belgian bar in Tokyo. Unfortunately we didn't get into the food, but my opinion of these places is generally that you should go for the beer only, so anything else is a bonus. I miss having frites at Les Hydropathes. Why did they close?

Kwaks like a duck...
