To the experienced cocktail-bar fan, some things about the new place on Macdougal Street in Greenwich Village will be familiar: the hard-to-find entrance, the cramped subterranean quarters, the need for reservations, the turntable and the collection of old vinyl.

This is @tokyorecordbar, a creative homage to a type of bar, common in Japan, where the aural is as important as the oral. Customers can choose a record to be played in addition to their drinks and food. The bar, which has only 16 seats and a low ceiling laced with paper #cherryblossoms, opened at the end of August.
