Rooftop Bars in Tokyo enmesh you in an ultramodern and cosmopolitan city with outstanding views, bright lights, great beverages and astoundingly unique culture that blends ancient past and vibrant present. From the views on these bars, you'll see lights that put Times Square or Las Vegas to shame while at the same time catch sight of temples that were built hundreds of years ago, and somehow they all go together.

    The culture is also present in the bars themselves, which serve as much tea as they do beer and cocktails, for a uniquely Japanese experience from music and dance to unmatched city views. Check out some of the best spots in the city to enjoy Tokyo nightlife with a view.
