Nightlife in Kyoto

For most, Kyoto nightlife doesn’t call to mind any immediate associations in the way Roppongi or Shibuya or Namba or Nakasu or Susukino nightlife might, but Kyoto has plenty of spots to drink the night away, whether your ideal scene is a smokey jazz bar, Burgundy in antique Baccarat crystal, or craft beer and DJ sets.

Here are the best spots that you can enjoy the Kyoto’s nightlife, such as bars, stand pubs and clubs.
