Tokyo: Bar High Five

"Japan is the Galápagos Islands of bartending: Mixologists develop their own ways of making classics," says High Five owner Hidetsugu Ueno. Ueno, who trained at Tokyo's legendary Star Bar Ginza, is obsessed with ice: At Bar High Five, he uses cubes of different temperatures in his drinks and can carve them to a diamond-like sparkle.
