Listed as a must in every single Tokyo guide and rated one of the best rooftop bars in the world, I do not dare leave Tokyo without a visit to this much celebrated hotel bar. The minute I walk in I understand why Sofia Coppola chooses this place for her movie Lost in Translation. Set on the top floor of the Park Hyatt, New York Bar welcomes its guests with these views:
Although nothing can ever replace that special spot Hong Kong night view holds in my heart, looking down at this perfect picture of Tokyo, with a cocktail in hand, is not too bad a place to be in, not bad at all. It is the perfect ending to the perfect meal we had earlier at Steak House Satou.
ROSE MARTINI RULES!
ESPRESSO MARTINI FOOLS.
Just a few steps from the bar is the equally famous New York Grill. A look at its menu and I suddenly wish I was born with two stomachs. Or three. Life is just so unfair.
But no worries, New York Grill, I will be back for you!
