In the case of Martha, located on a small but exciting street on the southeast side of Ebisu, the stereo is massive and old-fashioned. In this picture you can see the blue dials of a MacIntosh amp, a solid 10 glowing 'big-bottles' of tube power, and the fabric-covered, refrigerator-sized hulks of some top-class Tannoy speakers (Westminsters, judging by the size). You can't see any of that, can you? Trust me, I was there.
You need not be so careful in choosing snacks from the well-filled jars on all the tables. Any bar that supplies giant corn, fried peas, chocolate barley, and two other snacks, without charge...that's my kinda bar.
Best part is that they have 5 similar bars on the west side of Tokyo.
