Nishiazabu Restaurant Guide

Nishi Azabu is located on the western edge of Azabu in Minato Ward, along the border with Shibuya Ward.The Nishi Azabu Intersection is at the crossroads of Roppongi Dori and Gaien Nishi Dori.This part of Tokyo was a originally quiet, high-class residential area, but with the Olympics in 1964 (Showa 39), an increasing number of office blocks and high-rise apartments were built along Roppongi Dori. The area took on its current flavor after entering the bubble period of the late 1980s. Massive discos and stylish cafe bars were built here during the bubble years, and the area gave birth to a unique club culture.Frequented by many celebrity musicians and entertainers, this adults' playground came to be known nationwide with the release of the Tunnels' song, "Nishi Azabu in the Rain," in 1985.The FM station, J-WAVE, opened in Nishi Azabu during this period, and broadcast the latest sounds and information from the club scene.There are many members only lounges, hidden shops, and clubs and bars that have been passed down by their owners to this day.
