Enjoy a Drink Outdoors: Rooftop Bars and Beer Gardens in Hiroshima

The weather during the summer in Hiroshima is often perfect for enjoying a drink outdoors. Luckily, you have plenty of options for rooftop bars and beer gardens.

Hiroshima2016 Restaurant Under the Sky

Enjoy as many drinks and as much food as you like at Hiroshima2016 Restaurant Under the Sky. This beer garden has all-you-can-eat for 3,800 yen. The deal includes alcohol, soft drinks, yakitori, stir fry, desserts, and more. Order whatever you’d like off the menu and the waiters will bring it to you.

Where: 6-26 Ebisucho, Naka Ward (map)

Open Hours: 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day

ANA Crowne Plaza Hiroshima Rooftop Beer Garden

The rooftop beer garden at ANA Crowne Plaza offers fantastic views of Hiroshima. In addition to the all-you-can-eat food (which includes meat, vegetables, and dessert), you can serve yourself as much beer and sparkling wine as you like. You’re also welcome to prepare cocktails — there are instructions available to teach you how to mix drinks.

Where: ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel Hiroshima, 7-20 Nakamachi, Naka Ward (map)

Open Hours: 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. every day, plus 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays

Yokokawa Beer Garden

Another all-you-can-eat bar is Yokokawa Beer Garden. The food is mostly barbecue, although there is a wide range of options. Patrons may stay for up to five hours. Although the bar is outdoors, it has a roof, meaning it’s a suitable spot even on rainy days.
Where: Casa Viento Hostal, 1F, 3-3-5 Yokogawacho, Naka Ward (map)

Open Hours: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day

Rooftop Bar “Kei”

Located on the 14th floor of The Knot, Rooftop Bar “Kei” is open to everyone — not just hotel guests. It’s the ideal spot if you want to drink cocktails with views of the city skyline. You can buy drinks and snacks with money or K-coins — tokens the hotel uses. Items costs slightly less when you use K-coins than if you purchase with yen.

Where: 14F, 3-1-1 Otemachi, Naka Ward (map)

Open Hours: 2:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day

Yebisu Bar

Beer lovers need to pay Yebisu Bar a visit. It has a wide selection of beers (including beer cocktails) along with food that pairs perfectly with the drinks on offer. During pleasant weather, you can sit at one of the tables on the outdoor patio. You’ll still receive fast service due to the tablet ordering system.

Where: Ekicity Hiroshima, 1F, 3-1 Matsubaracho, Minami Ward (map)

Open Hours: 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day

Hiroshima Mitsukoshi Lion Beer Garden

A top option if you want a hearty meal as well as a drink is Hiroshima Mitsukoshi Lion Beer Garden. If you just turn up, you’ll be able to choose between beef, pork, chicken, and lamb. Book in advance and you’ll also have the options of Hiroshima beef and Kuroge Wagyu beef. Although it’s a big place, it attracts crowds — just be aware that only some seating is under the roof.

Where: Mitsukoshi Hiroshima Store, 1F, 5-1 Ebisucho, Naka Ward (map)

Open Hours: 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday to Friday; 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays

Whether you’re looking for cocktails or craft beer or you just want to enjoy a warm evening outdoors, Hiroshima has the bar for you.
