Tower Records Café

Tower Records Café

Squaring off with Starbucks


Originally published on on November 2012

Those of you who still buy CDs might have noticed a lot of redeveloping going on over at Tower Records in Shibuya lately. The music store turned construction site will house a spankin’ new café with “溜り場 / たまりば / tamariba” as the main concept. Considering this means “meeting place” it might well be mounting an assault on the Tsutaya/Starbucks hegemony on the Shibuya scramble. Though they are going to lose on the view.

What: New café and “renewal” of Tower Records Shibuya

When: Nov 23. 10am-11:30pm

Where: 2F Tower Records Shibuya
