re:Dine Ginza

Re:Dine GINZA is Japan's first shared kitchen restaurant. It offers a coworking space to five different talented chefs to try out some innovative cuisine. The chefs change periodically so you're bound to make interesting discoveries at every visit.

In the evening it has a really nice casual dining bar atmosphere. There is a bar counter section in the restaurant where you can enjoy some fine drinks made by re:DINE's in-house bartender. This is a good place to start your evening!

Le Nougat

Le Nougat is a French-style bistro and dining bar with great foods and a superb wine selection. They can accommodate groups with evening courses that range in price from ¥4,000 to ¥7,000. Glasses of wine can be ordered a la carte from ¥880.

The atmosphere is warm, and there is even a pleasant terrace that can be used during the warm months.

Ginza 300 Bar Next

Ginza 300 Bar Next is a super value, no cover charge bar with a laid-back atmosphere.
What's really awesome about this bar is that they have a ticket system, and almost everything is only 300 yen (excluding tax)! It's been that way since their opening in 1992!
You can buy tickets at the entrance and you then exchange the tickets for drinks or food. If you buy 10 tickets at once you get one free. You don't have to use them all on the same night, and you can even use them at any of their other two locations in Ginza. Bar hopping at its finest!

Their mojitos often make the list of the best mojitos in Tokyo. And unlike most cocktails in Tokyo, they aren't super pricey...actually far from it!
They even have a certificate from the Cuban embassy in Tokyo, testifying that they make mojitos in the traditional Cuban way! For more information on this bar, check out the link below.

Ginza Tender

The name of the bar comes for Elvis Presley's 'Love Me Tender' song. A lot of love and tenderness is put into making every drink and it has a warm retro vibe so the name is very suiting. Ueda-san, the gentleman bartender with lots of experience under his belt, makes some of the best cocktails in the area.

There is a counter with about 10 seats, and you can also sit at one of the 20 or so table and sofa seats.

There are some menus in English. Drinks are between ¥1,500 and ¥2,000.

Tender is on the 5th floor of a building.

Star Bar Ginza

Star Bar is an iconic bar of Ginza. It now has two other branches in Tokyo and one in Kyoto, but the original location in Ginza has arguably the most beautiful traditional decor and atmosphere. It is relatively small with just 25 seats (10 counter seats). The service is impeccable and the cocktails are absolutely gorgeous and original. The bar is well-known for its incredible hand-cut ice used in their drinks.

Cocktails are about ¥1,500 each and there is a ¥1,000 cover charge.

Mori

This bar opened in the mid-1990s and it has been loved by the locals ever since. It has a pretty old school classy vibe with a friendly bartender that makes outstanding cocktails. The drink you must try if you go is the Mori Bar Martini.

For a bar of its kind, Mori has a pretty good selection on the food menu. You can have all sorts of Japanese style 'otsumami' (snacks) and also order some more hearty foods like pizza and pasta.

Bar Hoshi (BAR 保志)

Bar Hoshi in Ginza is one of the most talked about by the Japanese people who know well the area. The service is impeccable, the bar's atmosphere is rustic and stylish at the same time, and the cocktails are excellent. So if you are looking for a nice relaxing bar experiencing this might be the place for you. The bar is rather small, with only 18 seats, and the price is somewhat more expensive than the average. Expect to pay ¥6,000 and over (there is a ¥1,500 service charge). But it is definitely worth the go if you are seeking an upscale bar experience in Ginza.

Club Genius Tokyo

Genius Tokyo is the most popular club in Ginza. It's a huge club that has four floors which in club a DJ's bar lounge, a dancing square, a "sky love square" and a Club Genius VIP lounge. Many famous DJ appear as special guests, and they often have ladies days during the week for which women can have free-flowing alcohol for just ¥1,000.
The club is located at a 5-minute walk from the JR Yurakucho Station. Although this is a club, they have a pretty good food menu with appetizers, rice/noodle dishes and even desserts. For more information, check out their official website. Most of the information is in Japanese but you should get an idea of the upcoming special events.
Club Address: 646bldg Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

CLUB DIANA

Club Diana is another popular club in the Ginza area. A lot of Japanese people go to the club after work so you might see plenty of people in business apparel having fun after a long days work. There are some dance event shows and different kinds of parties so the club goers vary depending on the day.
You can have traditional Japanese alcohols served in squared cups while you enjoy the club. See the link below for more information about the club. Most of the information is in English.
Address: 1-5-2 Yurakucho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo
Access: the nearest station is the Tokyo Metro Ginza Station (Exit C1).

Tsubakiya Coffee Shop (椿屋珈琲店)

This is not exactly what you would expect to find in a nightlife area guide, but we believe it is worth mentioning because not a lot of traditional cafes with a really nice retro atmosphere are open until the wee hours of the night like Tsubakiya Kohiten. On weekdays, you can spend a lazy evening, chatting with friends and this extremely cozy establishment until 7 AM. On weekends, you can stay there until 11 PM. Their cakes and coffee, although on the expensive side, are really outstanding.
