As its name implies, this hidden gem of a bar in Otemon and not far from Ohori Park specializes in mojitos. Owner Eisaku Ueda, a former luxury hotel barkeep, offers 16 varieties of deftly crafted mojitos. Enjoy the trademark Kotemon Mojito, which uses fresh mint from Itoshima and cane sugar from Okinawa (with a piece of sugar cane in lieu of a swizzle stick!), the popular rose-infused mojito, or one of the seasonal fruit mojitos—stop in now for one made with fresh passion fruit direct from Okinawa. Perfect for a relaxing tipple after work.
