AKABANEBASHI: Towers 188 Restaurant Reception... 250 guests... capacity of 35... Cops swarming due to overflow. A disaster near Tokyo Tower.

Was invited to what seemed like an great event for a pre-open reception of an American style vintage restaurant themed "Guy foods that go well with Beer."  Lamb Chili, fried foods marinated in Brooklyn Lager and home made Ketchup.  I was all in!

So we arrived at 8pm to an absolute mad house.  This restaurant can comfortably accommodate 35 people with both standing and table seating in the very back but their Facebook invite with over 250 people was insane.  A solid 20-30 minutes just to order a drink and the little food they served was swarmed by the few people just hanging out near the tiny kitchen area.

What kind of retard would invite 250 people to fit in this TINY SPACE is beyond me!

Opening reception and charging everyone 500yen for watered down drinks.  
The draft beer was sold out by 8pm.

This is just the partial overflow outside... a squad of 5-6 Japanese police officers and squad cars was enough for most of the guest to leave.  Poorly planned and poorly executed.  I will NEVER return to Towers 188 again.  There are way too many great restaurants to support in Tokyo.

The highlight of the evening... Towers 188 is located in the shadows of Tokyo Tower and between Aston Martin Tokyo and another exotic sports car shop with several SLS AMG  Ferrari 458.
