Tokyo’s Best Sky Bars

There is really only one way to grasp the magnitude and energy of this city that never sleeps:

From above and with a cocktail in your hand...

AMAN | Otemachi




If there was only one place you should visit during your time in Tokyo, it should be the AMAN. Not just a hotel, restaurant and lounge but rather an oasis and a sanctuary full of inspiration, the AMAN shows how traditional Japanese design can be taken into the 21st century.

“The Lounge by Aman”, a must-see and must-visit café, bar, lounge, boutique and fumoir with almost unrivaled city views during any time of the day and some of the city’s best cocktails, fuses traditional Japanese flavors into modern cocktails at a price tag that will make even luxury travelers’ credit cards smoulder.

Seasonal cocktails ¥2,500 ~
Main courses ¥2,30~

Desserts ¥1,700~

Kiriko Lounge | Ginza




Located on the 6th floor of the beautiful Tokyu Plaza Ginza shopping mall, this exquisitely designed lounge does not only offer one of the best views over the Yurakucho/ Ginza area, but is also completely free to visit complete with couches, chairs and tables, perfect for a relaxing break and snack and especially beautiful at sunset and in the evening when the city reveals its nighttime beauty.

If you are craving extravagant cocktails, then head over to  “Sukiyabashi Sabo” on the left side of the lounge which boast an beautiful but small food menu.

Sky Lounge Stellar Garden | Shibakoen




No photo can capture the stunning view that overwhelms you when you enter Sky Lounge Stellar Garden on the 33rd floor of The Prince Park Tower Hotel Tokyo. Few skybars in Tokyo take you as close to Tokyo’s magical nightscape, and perhaps it’s Stellar Garden’s unique 180 degree window view - perched in front of Tokyo Tower -  that makes you feel like you are right in the middle of it all.

Be sure to take a seat at one of the window seats at sunset (having a reservation is handy here) and take in the breathtaking view as the sun sets over central Tokyo and slowly gives way to that nighttime sparkle we all love so much about the city. If you are lucky and arrive on a clear day (especially during the cold season) you might even catch a glimpse of Mount Fuji.
