| Food & Drink , Bars

Will anyone ever get tired of the hustling bustling Japanese capital? When visiting Tokyo, why not take some time out and kick back, relax, and enjoy a glorious view of the city skyline from up high at one of the rooftop bars? Whether you’re a businessman or a couple in love, here’s our pick of the top 10 rooftop bars in Tokyo!

10. TwentyEight

On the 28th Floor of the Conrad Tokyo, the appropriately named TwentyEight is surrounded by huge glass windows that go all the way up to its high ceiling, with the best views of the Hama-Rikyu Gardens, the Rainbow Bridge, and Tokyo Bay. A good selection of cocktails are available too (at a price) but coupled with the bossa nova and other great music selection, the atmosphere is absolutely unbeatable here.

Located in the uber posh area of Ebisu Park, find this bar by pressing the intercom at the front entrance to one of the buildings and you can take the elevator up to Deva, one of the best hidden bars with a great view in the Shibuya area. Around since the late 90s, this is perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city just below, and good for taking a date on a romantic night out.

8. The Bar

Famed for hosting some of the most important political figures, it’s not all peace and save the world with Hotel New Otani. The Bar (literally named The Bar) is one of the best things about this hotel. Located up on the 40th floor, you can get an impressive view of the Tokyo Tower in the center of Akasaka city in Chiyoda. The staff are friendly, passionate, and always ready to dispense a history of the hotel and area, and when you’re done with your drink, consider heading to the equally beautiful garden to admire nature’s wonders.

7. Bello Visto

Up on the 40th floor of the Cerulean Tower Tokyo Hotel lies the bar Bello Visto. Expect only the most beautiful sunsets as you gaze at the Tokyo skyline and the Tanzawa Mountains. Be sure to get a reservation early and plop yourself down at the gigantic window where you can watch old meets new as skyscrapers are set against equally imposing mountains. This is what you came for, and you can almost swear the sky is on fire as you sip on your cocktail and marvel at the natural beauty of the world.

6. Andaz Tokyo

Perched on top of the 52nd floor of Toranomon Hills, the second highest building in the capital, the Andaz lets you see all the way to Tokyo Bay, and is one of the most popular late night bars for romantic views and contemplative evenings. You’ll have a unique selection of cocktails inspired by seasonal fruit and teas, while standard beer, champagne (only the best), and sake are also on offer. This is the perfect way to unwind after a long day of work with a tasty tasty drink, and a breathtaking view.

Located on the 30th floor of the Grand Pacific Le Daiba, Star Road has one of the absolute best views of Tokyo at night and you can see the city in all its sleepless glory, lights abound as you watch from above. From the bar, you can see the Tokyo Tower, the waterfront, the Skytree, the Rainbow Bridge, and the towers along the mouth of the Sumida River. If you’re seated on the west side, you can also get an amazing view of Mount Fuji, and this is the perfect bar to head to to plan the rest of your trip and easily point out all the sights Tokyo has to offer.
