“Where is the perfect place to go to have some drinks where you also have a beautiful view over the city?” This is a question I often get asked by my friends during their stay in Tokyo. If you are looking for something in the Shinagawa area, I would say it has to be “DINING & BAR TABLE 9 TOKYO” in the Shinagawa Prince Hotel. The view of Tokyo’s skyline seen from the bar and dining area is amazing! Today, I’d like to share my impression of one of the bars and the main dining which I visited with a friend.
A 360-degree panorama!
“DINING & BAR TABLE 9 TOKYO” on the 39th floor of Shinagawa Prince Hotel is a restaurant floor that just opened at the end of 2017. As the name suggests, it’s a place with nine different types of bars, lounges and dining restaurants. There is so much to choose from that you will most certainly find a place that fits your mood and the purpose.
Also, since the entire floor’s layout is just restaurants and bars, you actually have a 360-degree Tokyo panorama that you can enjoy no matter which restaurant you choose. Mt. Fuji, Tokyo Tower, Sky Tree, Shinagawa Station and Tokyo Bay…There is a lot to see. Which view would you choose?
Cotton candy for dinner?
At “DINING & BAR TABLE 9 TOKYO” the main restaurant “TOKYO FUSION DINING” offers Japanese-style dishes such as Sukiyaki, Tonkatsu, Shabu Shabu and Sushi arranged in a contemporary style.
Out of the many tasty options, we had Sukiyaki for dinner. The name of the dish reminds me of Kyu Sakamoto’s song “SUKIYAKI” (which has a completely different name in Japanese) – do you know it? Sukiyaki (as a meal) is very popular here in Japan, but you rarely get the chance to eat it outside of Japan. If you get the chance, you should definitely try during your stay in Japan!
At “TOKYO FUSION DINING” the chef will prepare the sukiyaki in front of you. What is unusual is that instead of regular sugar cotton candy is used instead. Suddenly a big flame rises from the meat. It was the flame of a flambé. What a surprise! And what was even better: the tender and exquisite wagyu meat tasted incredible!
DJ performances at night
“DINING & BAR TABLE 9 TOKYO” has three bars where you can stay until 4 AM in the morning. From “NINE BAR” you have a beautiful view over Tokyo and you can see both Tokyo Tower and Sky Tree. As a nice extra, there are music performances by DJs as well. The genres of music have a wide range from SOUL, JAZZ, R & B and others. (Check the schedule here)
At “NINE BAR” the have a food and drink plan (“Sunset Free Flow Plan”) which can be booked by the day before. It includes an all-you-can-drink plan for two hours. Choose from 99 kinds of cocktails made by a professional bartender and enjoy the view while tasting the beautiful side dishes. It’s a quite reasonable plan which my friend and I really enjoyed.
If you are looking for a relaxing restaurant or bar for adults in the Shinagawa area, I definitely would recommend you “DINING & BAR TABLE 9 TOKYO”. I’m sorry I didn’t introduce all of the nine restaurants in this article, but I am sure, you will find the right match for you! It’s a great, luxurious place and a great choice if you want to make some special memories.
