Best Bars in Tokyo

Tokyo's most famous bar would have to be the New York bar at the top of the Park Hyatt where Bill Murray's character spend his evenings in the movie 'Lost in Translation'. And rightly so, the view is awesome! But there are some other alternatives and what Tokyo does really well are very small runs, staffed only by the owner and serving a handful or guests. Our Tokyo Bar Guide will get you a drink in the city's tallest buildings and its smaller side streets.
