By Anne Ueki
Updated: May 30, 2024

Tokyo is the world’s largest city, with an estimated population of 37,115,035 people as of 2024. What does this figure have to do with the best Tokyo rooftops for drinking, dining, and relaxing? 

This extreme population density has transformed Tokyo into a vertical city, with towering apartment buildings, sky-high hotels, high-rise offices, and sky-scraping department stores encouraging people to rise above the clouds. Due to this, there’s no shortage of rooftop bars and restaurants in Tokyo — along with rooftop gardens and public spaces that have become increasingly common over the years. 

Tip: Join a Tokyo bar-hopping tour to see some of the city's most chill spots.

Located in Tokyo’s affluent Daikanyama neighborhood, Hacienda del Cielo sits on the ninth floor of an unassuming building — boasting breathtaking city views. Hacienda del Cielo combines modern and traditional Mexican food, along with a bevy of innovative cocktails and drinks. 

One of the best Tokyo rooftops at night is right here, as the restaurant boasts stunning views of Tokyo Tower and Mori Tower. Divided into four sections–the outdoor terrace, sky dining, bar area, and a luxury lounge — Hacienda del Cielo covers all the bases regarding seating settings. The atmosphere is warm, lively, and fun, complemented by an 8-meter high ceiling and a color scheme evocative of a Mexican resort. In our humble opinion, Hacienda del Cielo is the cream of the crop in terms of Tokyo rooftop restaurants. More details.

2. Two Rooms Grill & Bar

Two Rooms Grill & Bar

They pooled their industry expertise and founded Two Rooms Bar & Grill in 2009, opening its doors on the 5th floor of the Ao Building in the stylish Aoyama neighborhood.

Compared to some of the other towering hotspots on this list, Roku Nana sits humbly on the third-floor rooftop of a building overlooking Roppongi Hills and Tokyo Tower. Roku Nana is one of the lesser-known rooftop venues on our list, establishing its secret bar status due to the lack of signs or branding, just an address you need to first know to find. 

Roku Nana was designed by Yasumichi Morita — founder and CEO of the contemporary design firm, Glamorous. His signature futuristic and innovative style is on full display in this hidden rooftop bar in Roppongi, with heavy use of dim lighting, various metals, and glass throughout the bar. While Roku Nana is primarily a bar, it does have a humble yet creative menu including dishes like Quail Egg Pickles, Truffle Popcorn, and Mini Chicken Ramen. More details.

4. R Restaurant & Bar

Tokyo rooftop restaurants (and bars) that offer all-day dining are hard to come by, a role which this lavish French bisto was more than happy to fill. 

The grand eight-meter-long bar serves as a stage for some of the world’s finest drops, with a sommelier hand-selecting a range of wine and champagne monthly. Regarding seating, R Restaurant & Bar offers table, counter, and outdoor terrace options allowing guests to choose from various settings.

With global locations in Taiwan, Shanghai, and Dubai, the Tokyo branch sits atop the newly renovated Tokyu Place by Shibuya Station. Although CÉ LA VI draws a crowd, this should not deter you from checking out this sky-high venue–the unhindered views of Shibuya Crossing are reason enough to pay this spot a visit. 

In terms of food, the on-site dining serves contemporary Asian cuisine to the lunch and dinner crowds. Bao by CÉ LA VI sits on the 17th floor, offering hungry diners a bounty of bao (and beyond) to choose from.

  • Location: Chiyoda
  • Features: Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, open space

Planted on the seventh floor of the Shin-Marunouchi building, Marunouchi House boasts an A-plus outdoor terrace with unhindered views of Tokyo Station. Due to its location, Marunouchi House is typically frequented by office workers and is relatively quiet on weekdays (outside of the lunch rush). Weekends tend to be busier, with the space hosting a rotation of music events and exhibitions, groups filing in for brunch, and people enjoying the outdoor armchairs with a book in hand.

8. Rooftop Bar at Andaz Hotel

Shibuya Parco itself is a department store, with a plethora of shops and pop-ups selling everything from Japanese designer fashion to anime collectibles and furniture. Keeping things fresh and interesting are what the brand thrives upon, so no two visits will feel the same.

14. Miyashita Park Rooftop

  • Floor: 4th
  • Location: Shibuya
  • Features: Cafes, open space

Open leisure spaces in Tokyo have transitioned from seasonal pop-ups (such as outdoor beer gardens) into city mainstays, like Miyashita Park Rooftop. Fancy some rock climbing, a game of volleyball, followed by a skate and some coffee? Miyashita Park Rooftop, naturally.

Miyashita Park Rooftop reopened following extensive renovations in 2020, unveiling a bright and beaming three-storey shopping mall and rooftop park. The entire building spans over 300 meters, is split into two halves connected by a walkway, and houses over 60 shops and restaurants. This complex was built with community in mind, featuring plenty of indoor and outdoor seating as well as wide open space and a rooftop that stays open until 11:30pm. 

While the rooftop itself only has a few drink and dine options (Starbucks, Valley Park Stand, and the occasional coffee truck), you can find a yokocho on the ground floor, food court on the 3rd floor, and plenty of restaurants scattered in between. And while you’re in Shibuya, why not join one of our Tokyo Bar Hopping tours to experience the city after dark as the locals do? More details.

15. Meguro Sky Garden

  • Location: Meguro
  • Features: Open space

Landing in Tokyo’s laidback Meguro ward in 2013, Meguro Sky Garden is a unique outdoor green space suspended over a highway. Just a hop, skip and jump from Shibuya, this spot is lesser-known to travelers but well-loved by urban design enthusiasts due to its concept and execution. 

The main attraction of Meguro Sky Garden is the outdoor space and view — there’s no cafes or restaurants on this humble rooftop! But there’s a conveniently located supermarket on ground-level, so you can stop to buy food and drinks before heading on up. Visit after a day in Meguro, stay for the sunset, and spot Mt. Fuji on a clear day! More details.

Tokyo’s skyline continues to evolve, with rooftop bars, restaurants, and up-high outdoor areas making clever use of space in this tightly-packed city. Summer, autumn, winter, or spring–we encourage you to conquer your fear of heights and climb that flight of stairs, press the button in the elevator, or hop on an escalator to check out some of our favorite Tokyo rooftops for drinking, dining, and relaxing. 

We strive to be as accurate as possible and keep up with the changing landscape of Japan's food and travel industries. If you spot any inaccuracies, please send a report.
