1. Andaz Rooftop Bar

Best Rooftop Bars In Tokyo - Andaz 1

The Andaz Rooftop Bar (part of Andaz Tokyo Hotel) has got to be the most popular rooftop option in all of Tokyo. The views here are absolutely sublime, boasting panoramic access to Tokyo Bay and Odaiba, including the wonderful Rainbow Bridge. The view is best enjoyed at night, when the night lights brighten the entire city and you can see them glittering in the reflections in the water around the city. 

The drinks here are also on another level. With distinct and unique cocktails featuring local ingredients such as matcha and yuzu, you’ll be tempted to want to try everything on the menu. The bar boasts fine labels here that come at a premium, but for spirit aficionados, you’ll feel right at home with the extensive menu. 

2. New York Bar

This trendy bar located on the 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt in Tokyo is the epitome of a classy and modern entertainment lounge that suits those who like to slowly sip away at their drinks to jazz music. This bar became famous with the movie “Lost in Translation”. They shot many scenes of the movie in this gorgeous bar.

They actually offer a wide-range of premium whiskeys and cognac, original and classic cocktails, and the largest selection of American wines in all of Japan! One of the reasons for its name is because, with the languid, relaxed atmosphere induced by the dim lights, dark wooden tones, floor-to-ceiling windows offering sweeping views of the city, and a live jazz band every night, the New York Bar almost feels as though it belongs in the middle of New York City itself.

3. Sky Lounge Stellar Garden

Sleek, modern, spacious, with epic night views, the Sky Lounge Stellar Garden is a hidden gem amongst all the other flashy rooftop bars in Tokyo. Similar to all other bars, it offers spectacular seasonal cocktails and premium spirits on an extensive menu, however, it does manage to differentiate itself quite well.

Rather than being labelled as an exclusive space, the establishment is larger than most, offering seating for up to 100 patrons at a time. In saying that, it is still designed to be very cosy and intimate with comfortable bar stools and plush velvety sofas, making it a great option for a larger group. Also, for those who want more than just a skyline view, you’ll be able to get a full-frontal view of the glittering Tokyo Tower from here! Just remember, the view is best enjoyed by the ‘pair seats’ next to the window.

4. Bellovisto

Located in the busy centre of Shibuya, Bellovisto may not be the most prestigious lounge on this list, but it does well in offering a fantastic bar option with plenty to drink and beautiful views to those who want to stay in the middle of the city. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer sweeping views of the city, but if you manage to catch it during sunrise, you may even be able to witness the sun setting over the Tanzawa Mountains. You can ensure your seat by the window by booking, but booking is only available before 7:00pm.

The menu is extensively wine-focused, offering many choices from all over the world, and prices start from around 1,235 yen, however, you will need to factor in the 10% surcharge to your bill.

5. Two Rooms Grill & Bar

The gorgeous Two Rooms Grill and Bar offers a very stylish outdoor terrace that’s a great option for weekend brunch and booze, and summer nights sipping on wine whilst gazing out at the bar and gorgeous skyline of the city. In fact, it’s been tipped as having one of the best views you can capture of the city, especially if you manage to grab a seat before sunset.

Here, you have options of many tasty treats to order, crafted signature cocktails, a large selection of Mojitos, beers, and an extensive wine list to choose from. The vibe is super chill, with a DJ playing relaxed tunes every night.

6. Hacienda Del Cielo

Hacienda Del Cielo is actually Spanish for ‘House in the Sky’, and it is suitably fitted for this gorgeous Mexican joint located in the popular Shibuya district. It’s a hidden gem, but that just means more of the views for yourself! 

Located on the 9th floor of a business building, its rather bleak entrance does nothing for the charming indoor dining and bar lounge and the impressive and stylish rooftop terrace. Here, you’ll be able to order delicious Mexican fare as well as regular and funky drinks from an extensive menu. However, to really get into the vibe, we recommend grabbing frozen margaritas, sangria, Mexcan beer, or tequila to get started!

7. Allamanda Garden

This option is a rather unique addition to the list, as it is not exclusively a bar with a view, but rather an outdoor restaurant dining area with views and a pool! This area was formerly known as Laputa Garden, but now Aoyama’s Allamanda Garden is known for its Italian-French-Californian fusion cuisine, distinct refined atmosphere, and exclusive pool right in the middle of the venue. Of course, if you’re seated along the edge, you will be able to capture stunning images of the skyline.

8. Oriental Lounge

Oriental Lounge 1

Oriental Lounge is located within the Mandarin Oriental Tokyo, and it is easily one of the most luxurious and sophisticated bars in the entirety of Tokyo. Imagine lush furnishings, a cozy fireplace, modern and contemporary interiors, and an exclusive atmosphere set by dim lighting and candles with live music.

This is the perfect option for those seeking a quiet, relaxing night of sipping on tea, cocktails, and premium liquor whilst gazing out at the captivating skyline of Tokyo. After a romantic night out in the city? This is also recommended as a great place to visit for couples.

9. Twenty Eight

Twenty Eight Conrad Tokyo Hotel 2

Twenty Eight, located on the 28th floor of the Conrad Tokyo, may have a gentlemen’s club-esque feel about it, and yet despite its enormous windows, dimly lit settings, and extensive list of premium drinks, it boasts a rather inclusive atmosphere. The breathtaking views are thanks to the incredibly distinct tall ceilings of which the windows reach from the ground up towards. The views are unbeatable, with you being able to see over Hama-Rikyu Gardens, the Rainbow Bridge, and Tokyo Bay all at once. The night view with live music here is of course very coveted, however, having afternoon tea with scones here is also recommended.

If there were ever a bar that screams extraordinary luxury, it would be Peter: The Bar. Located in the sleek neighbourhood of Hibiya, on the 24th floor of the Peninsula Hotel, this bar boasts incredible views of the Imperial Palace Gardens, Hibiya Park and the entire Ginza city. What makes this bar so unique is not the sweeping view of the city though, it’s the interior: imagine splashes of silver, gold and purple on furnishings and furniture, with metallic sculptural trees throughout.

They offer an incredibly wide-range of drinks here, from 2,000 drinks to 98,000 bottles of Dom Perignon Brut Rose – and everything in between. However, if you’re on a bit of a budget, they offer happy hours on Sundays through to Thursdays from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, with drinks starting from only 800 yen. If you’re looking for something unique, try their signature cocktails, such as the Peninsula Highball which combines Japanese whiskey Hakushu, vodka flavoured with jasmine tea, soda, and lemon peel, and order the cajun Peter-style fries – the perfect snack to go with your drinks.

  • Address: 1 Chome-8-1 Yūrakuchō, Chiyoda City, Tokyo 100-0006, Japan
  • Access: It is located on the 24th floor of the Peninsular Hotel. From Hibiya Station, it s a 1-minute walk from exit A6.
