Ueno Nightlife

Where to Go at Night in Ueno - Tokyo

While Ueno is famous for history, religion and education it is not known for its nightlife. However the area does present a number of interesting venues.

Beer lovers and design lovers alike should visit the curious Asahi Super Dry Hall, designed by Philippe Starck or Kirin City, both interesting in homage to the popular brews.

Kirin City

The largest brewery in Japan the Kirin Brewery Company introduces beer lovers to a whole new realm of experience at Kirin City. The staff at this specialized beer pub are all expertly trained in a three-step method for pouring the perfect beer. The technique is slow taking between 3 and 5 minutes per glass but some good things in life do take time. The menu even has dishes that were specially created to complement Kirin beer.

Asahi Super Dry Hall

Famous designer Philippe Starck was responsible for the curious look of the Asahi Super Dry Hall. One wonders what Starck was going for when he created the large golden form that sits atop the hall roof. Inside the same form appears at unexpected moments, never quite explaining itself. Within the high-rise building the first and second floors contain the Flamme d’Or bar, equally whimsical it of course serves Asahi beer or you can take the elevator up to the 22nd floor Asahi Sky Room for a cold beer with a view.
