Dig The Line Doors (not sure what the name is supposed to mean), has recently opened in Harajuku. It’s very close to the station, in the basement of the building next to IKEA. As you’d expect from the location it has a trendy, modern vibe.
There are six taps and three were Japanese when I visited. Perhaps because of its proximity to IKEA, two taps were Brewski. I forgot to make a note of the prices but I remember thinking that they were about normal for a bar in a prime location.
There are also several fridges of bottles and cans (for drinking on site or taking away). These ranged from reasonably priced mainstream craft beers to some rare but more expensive offerings.
There is no smoking and no charge but I didn’t notice any WiFi. They are also open during the day which is a big plus for me. There is also some food available.
Whether you enjoy a bar or not can depend a lot on how lucky you are with timing. I happened to know two of the customers who were there and I also got talking to a guy dressed as Elvis and a guy who was killing time while his iPhone was being repaired so I really enjoyed the hour or so that I spent here.
Harajuku is definitely an area with a unique vibe and I felt that Dig The Line Doors certainly fits the area.
