Visit 221B Baker Street at Tokyo's New Sherlock Holmes-Themed Bar

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Fans who like Sherlock Hound, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, and Holmes of Kyoto are in luck because a Sherlock Holmes-themed bar just opened in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. The new Sherlock House bar captures the feel of the fictional detective's London home at 221B Baker Street with 19th-century vibes.

The bar opened in August, and it has become especially popular with women. Damask wallpaper exudes the atmosphere of 19th-century England. Holmesian touches include violin photos and a silk hat.

Because Holmes likes whiskey and soda, the bar serves a "Sherlockian Highball" drink made with Dewar's Scotch whiskey. Holmes' favorite roast beef reappears as "Deluxe Roast Beef" and "Deluxe Roast Beef Sandwiches." The menu also includes a variety of other drinks and food that the great detective himself might enjoy.

People who want to visit the themed bar can make reservations online. Sherlock House is open from 5:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. every day except Sunday.
