Polestar Shinjuku

written by EnAble Japan October 20, 2014

Located on 45th floor of the upmarket Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku, Polestar sells itself as a “sky bar” and with it’s gorgeous panoramic views of Tokyo, it truly feels like you’re in the sky. Drinks here are expertly made and extremely delicious (with a price-tag to match). The view from the bar is awesome, particularly at night when you get to see the whole of downtown Tokyo lit-up.

The barmen spoke good English when I visited and were very friendly; even specially serving my friend and me a couple of our cocktails in glasses coated with ice. They really went the extra mile to make our evening, and drinks, special. If there’s a drink you want that isn’t on the menu, just ask! The barmen here are happy to be creative and make you something a little different.

Most of the other customers were Japanese, with presumably most of the foreign visitors to this bar being guests at the hotel. It is not really a place to come if you want to meet and socialize with new people though; everyone pretty much keeps themselves to themselves, whether they’re sat at the bar or a table. This is nice if you go there on a date or to just chat with a friend or business associate as it gives you a sense of intimacy and privacy.
