Adorable dorama about a bartender that, although having won many prizes in Europe, has important things to learn about being a true bartender. I've been a regular customer of a cocktail music bar for over ten years, and every time I saw Bar Lapin it just reminded me to that bar, so I couldn't stop comparing the way everyone made cocktails, how they used the shaker and the bar spoon, which glasses they selected and so on. I even asked for some new cocktails and told them about mizuwari :D I also agree with the philosphy of a bartender's job and the way they must help people who visit their bars; I suppose the reason is that I also have a bar similar to Bar Lapin I like visiting from time to time. That's why this dorama, although not being the best one, is special for me. Don't expect much cocktail information in it, since it really focuses on the people that gather at Bar Lapin and the struggles of the main characters. I loved Kanjiya Shihori performance, and she is really cute too; it was so good to see Arakawa Yoshiyoshi (funny and clumsy as always), Tsugawa Masahiko (strong performance) and Takenaka Naoto (great voice and presence) in there. Aiba was great too. Cast was great for this dorama, although dialogs were really slow sometimes. Don't miss it if you want to have a good time and if you have some interest in alcohol and cocktails.

not a so so good drama but it's pretty fun. As I work in the world of beveverages in japan it was pretty intersting for me to watch it. It made me think that my work can make people happy in a way.

This drama is like a stale Bellini made with a low quality sparkling wine instead of champagne! Sweet, no flavors and sparkles!

This drama was absolutely charming! It managed to keep me intrigued whereas other, recent dramas of 2011 haven't really been able to (so far at least). Watch it to the end and you'll find you would've gained something. What is that something? You'll just have to find that out for yourself ;)
