Up on top on the 41st floor of the Park Hyatt in fancy Shinjuku lies a hidden gem – The Peak Lounge and Bar. Word has it that a scene from the Tom Hanks/ScarJo film Lost in Translation was shot here, and it’s no wonder – they’ve got such a fantastic view of the entire city that any filmmaker would be happy to get a shot of the view. Also, it has great happy hours and a canape selection!

A refined bar that any classy drinker will be happy to be at, this bar is located on the seventh floor of a building in the Ginza district and named after samurai and tea ceremony master Furuta Oribe. You can get a great view of the iconic Kabukiza Theatre, and be sure to try some of their potent cocktails; what’s recommended? The Silver Bullet that cuts right through your taste buds and provides clarity in the dark of the night.

3. Oriental Lounge

Oriental in this case has nothing to do with Japan being an Asian country, but everything to do with the fact that it’s located on the 38th floor of the Mandarin Oriental. Right in the heart of old Edo, imagine yourself going up to one of those huge towers you see, and of course, enjoying the views that those same towers offer, perfectly nestled in a lovely, comfy lounge with sofas as you gaze out the window at the electric town of Akihabara and more. A rather atmospheric bar, you’ll find dim lights and candles setting the mood for live music in the evenings, while there’s also a fantastic selection of drinks available, with both cocktails and Japanese craft gin.

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.

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.

The best thing about this bar is you will get to see the beautiful Tokyo tower. It used to be a new hidden spot when it was opened in 2014 but it seems to be a popular spot among locals and even tourists. As it's located in the middle of business district, you will see lots of expats or work group after work hour. It's not a big bar but it's a cozy and luxury atmosphere.

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.

[CLOSED] 7. Office

No doubt one of the quirkiest bars on the list, Office is a theme bar that…well, resembles an office. Who in the world wants to kick back and relax at an office after leaving the exact same place? God knows, but the Japanese have done it, somehow. Offering one of the best views in the area from its vantage point on the 5th floor of a building, you’ll find this a rather different work environment, even with some familiar elements such as a photocopier by the window and power points for your laptops, this is certainly no cubicle hell as you listen to the hippest DJs play tunes through the night and watch the young urbanites enter and party away.

Address: Yamazaki Bldg 5F, 2-7-18 Kita-Aoyama, Minato-ku, Tokyo

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.

9. Deva

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.

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.

Imagine venturing into a city as densely populated as Tokyo and finding a space of your own. It’s not the internet café hostels or karaoke closets I’m thinking of, but the city’s captivating small bar scene that will probably charm you. You’ll be imagining yourself like the lead actor in the latest Hollywood movie, and we can assure you, these bars will give you plenty of food for thought as you stare out into the beautiful starry night sky, as the city twinkles with its sleepless lights and unique skyline.
