After having been closed since August 7, 2016 for renovations, it has been revealed that the new Shibuya PARCO shopping complex is set to open in late November. The new building aims to be a “global shopping complex for a new generation.”
Building on the complex’s facilities, Shibuya PARCO’s will communicate new forms of entertainment and experience together with designers and artists. Its goal is to deliver cultural trends on a global level. To do this, it is further developing aspects of the building to drive its unique perspective by focusing on the design, art and entertainment side of things.
Around 180 unique stores will open their doors in the new Shibuya PARCO each of which pivot around 5 different themes: Fashion, Art & Culture, Entertainment, Food, and Technology. Multiple floors are being specially designed to form the interior of the complex so that they draw out the appeal of each of these individual genres.
Recently, we took a look at the Fashion and Art & Culture parts of the new Shibuya PARCO. Today, we are taking a look at Entertainment, Food and Technology.
The PARCO theatre is being expanded to accommodate fully premium seats. The theatre will showcase independent performances throughout the year.
Another mini theatre called CINE QUNTO managed independently by PARCO will also open. They will show lots of high quality and unique shows from a variety of genres, overseas musicals and more, creating a space for lovers of culture.
The QUATTRO LABO new Kichijoji Station is also moving to Shibuya PARCO. This music cafe and bar boasts a high-end audio record collection of over 3,000 vinyls. Together with CLUB QUATTRO and GALLERY X it will host various events and exhibitions.
The main restaurant floor, known as CHAOS KITCHEN, is a melting pot of cuisine, culture and music, being home to 21 restaurants spanning a multitude of cuisines from udon to insect to mix bars and beyond. It also houses record shops and a shop selling festival goods. We look forward to experiencing this floor has to offer with its unique mix of establishments.
There will be other restaurants and cafes besides those in the CHAOS KITCHEN too. The 7th floor will offer Japanese food like conveyor belt sushi, tempura, yakiniku, ramen, as well as restaurants offering vegan cuisine and more.
The 4th floor will see the arrival of chompoo, a Thai restaurant serving healthy food packed full of herbs. Down on the first floor will be a variety of cafes, beer stands, and a gallery called COMINGSOON that promotes food culture. There is a flower shop will also set up a wine bar on occasion.
Shibuya PARCO is also now offering online shopping, allowing people to purchase anything not currently in stock at stores.
