Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills - the Bar with a View

Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills has a rooftop bar. It is fifty-two floors above the ground. The view from it is fantastic.  You would be forgiven for thinking it looks like something out of Blade Runner. It is a great place to enjoy a drink.

Maybe a few spinners from the movie would complete the scene? I could add them using Photoshop! Then it would look exactly like a scene from the film. But maybe we’d need to make it look a little dirtier too?

Seriously though, I wonder what it’ll look like in the future. What changes will occur? Actually, it wasn’t so long ago that some buildings in this picture weren’t there. For example, Nittele Tower, which houses Nippon Television, was only finished in 2003.  As things change in Tokyo, the skyline will too.

The bar is in Toranomon, the heart of Tokyo’s business areas. Nagatacho, where the government lies, isn’t far away. That makes this bar the best place to keep an eye on things. You’ll be able to do it in complete comfort at Andaz.

By the way, I’ve only ever photographed from this bar.  I’ve never had a drink there.  It’s true.  And of course, let me know what the drinks and food are like! You can see the bar’s website here. One day I will go back to enjoy its hospitality. Please leave your questions and comments below.
