The location is great, unfortunately a little overpriced for a tourist bar. We had a few drinks at the 7/11 first and then joined our friends here. It was smoky and overcrowded, but you will meet people from many different countries!

Is it proof that I have been living in Japan too long when my fellow foreigners start to bother me? My firs impression was that it was an old and quaint dingy English pub, but the warning messages in the toilet about messiness and in...More

The Aldgate is hands down the best pub in Shibuya. It's great for foreigners who don't speak Japanese because all of the servers speak English, and the menus are in English and Japanese. It has a homey atmosphere with great food, music (you can also...More

Probably one of Tokyo's local favorites for meeting up after work, The Aldgate is the unassuming little pub that has something for everyone, but isn't intimidating. Don't worry, even though it's on Shibuya's super cool and super convenient Center Gai pedestrian street, you don't need...More

Nonsmoking, friendly multilingual staff and customers, nice beer selection, tasty pub food, central location, good music. These are reasons I love going to the Aldgate and always bring my friends/family when they come to visit!

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.
