Offering an alternative to the ubiquitous summer beer gardens, Tokyo Tower will be serving up whisky highballs until the start of September. Head to the base of Tokyo Sky Tree's dowdy predecessor from 4-10pm each evening for a menu of highballs (from ¥450), including a 'Tokyo Tower Highball' flavoured with bitter orange and herbs, and fancier 'premium' varieties made with Suntory Yamazaki and Hakushu whiskies. The food menu includes bacon, sausages, cheese and ice cream from Chiba's Mother Farm. And before you ask - yeah, they sell beer too.
