The Pink Cow is a live house, restaurant and bar located in Shibuya, Tokyo. The restaurant describes itself as a “funky space” and their goal is to create a funky atmosphere to go with their food and wine selection. They were originally located in Harajuku, but closed down to move to Shibuya, which is known to have a more popular music scene. Unlike most live houses, the Pink Cow is better known for their food and atmosphere than their live bands. The Pink Cow is owned by a California native named Traci Consoli who considers the Pink Cow her location to showcase the arts and create a sense of community. They are also available to be rented for parties. The Pink Cow kitchen is run by 5 star head chef Andrew Warden.

The restaurant's menu features chicken burritos, sirloin steak, salmon filet, and even turkey burgers. Every Friday and Saturday from 19:00-22:00 (7-10pm), the Pink Cow offers an all-you-can-eat buffet.

The lines that go towards this area are the JR, Toyoko Line, Inokashira Line, Ginza Line, Hanzomon Line, and the Chiyoda Line.


Because the Pink Cow was designed to be more of an artistic venue than a full blown live hall, it is not very large and a good deal of space is taken up with tables and chairs. The entire building fits approximately 90 people. They have a great deal of hot and cold dishes. There is a DJ booth and a stage for small bands. The people that generally attend the Pink Cow are an older crowd for the Shibuya Area in their mid-30’s to early 40’s.
