What the Dickens has been around for 20 or so years and really hasn’t changed since opening, with British brews and food and live music in a corner of 4f that allows floor or balcony listening. There’s smoking, occasionally dancing, and a good weekend vibe...More

This is a great place to grab a pint and some pub food. Typically great live music. Friendly staff and good selection of beers on tap and in the bottle. Stop in for a Pint you'll be glad you did.

A little tricky to find the first time. Small sign of the building directory noting the name on the 4th floor. Once there you are in a faux English pub with a standard bar menu and numerous beers, wines and spirits. A friendly atmosphere and...More

We usually go here on charity band nights, but there are other nights with different types of live music. It's a little smoky, but there are secluded corners where you can sometimes escape the haze. The food selection is good and we've always enjoyed what...More

My wife and I stumbled upon this pub while strolling through Shibuya. It's located on the top floor of a very interesting to the eye building. The bartender was very friendly and the band was great!

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
