Eating outside at Commune 2nd, Aoyama is fun for families with dogs! Our family of seven has very different food cravings so having a choice of 15+ food and beverage stalls is perfect. From steak to salads, mojitos to lemonade, you can satisfy many cravings. Super bonus is that doggies can join! This is also a great teenager date spot (sans parents). I recommend families go before 19:00, because it is a popular after work location for young professionals after 20:00. The table area is covered with a large dome so rain or shines you can enjoy your festivities. Free wifi also available for those wanting to visit during the earlier hours and work!
Great location to grab lunch or early dinner after a visit to the Nezu Museum, a Sat/Sun visit to the UN Farmers market, shopping at our favorite spots in Aoyama and Omotesando – Madu, Spiral, and Sou Sou.

Some of our favorite food ad beverage options include the french fries from Brooklyn Ribbon Fries, the falafel from Cori. Vegan, beer from Beer Brain and TonPai Chicken. There are many other options so gather the family, don’t forget the dog, and head out to Commune 2nd tonight.
Commune 2nd is the follow-on to Common 246 that was in this same location a few years back. Located about 50 feet from the Omotsando Crossing on Aoyama Dori (just past the Lacoste store walking in the direction of Gaienmae) you might miss the entry which is pretty narrow, but once you venture into Commune 2nd, it opens up into a large open area circled with food providers. In the back of the space, there are some prefab buildings which house a study area and space for pop-up events.
The Commune 2nd organizers goal is “There, even more interesting people will gather, and the city and people will be enlightened, and culture will be created. We would be happy if it became a place like this. We are challenging ourselves hard to achieve this, and this space will be created together by the people who bring the food cart which provides delicious food, and the people who visit.”
