Ebisu is a gourmet town full of fashionable restaurants and izakaya. At the East exit, where Ebisu Garden Place is, there is an abundance of expensive restaurants like Joel Robuchon, which keep the atmosphere tasteful and elegant. Nearby are the Westin Hotel Tokyo, Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu, and Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel. On weekdays, the area is filled with business people, and on the weekends the many shops are patroned by mainly female customers and couples. Some salons there broke off and became independent from large, famous salons in Tokyo. Ebisu, along with Daikanyama and Shibuya, is a popular spot for salons.
