As the festive season fast approaches, here’s our pick of the hotel’s tasty seasonal specials, featuring playful pastries and the chance to create your own original drink.
Christmas Dinner with a Difference
Want to celebrate Christmas in style this year? Head to Andaz Tavern for their Christmas Gala Dinner, and enjoy a course menu of gourmet dishes featuring Japan’s seasonal ingredients, such as Hokkaido venison and foie gras crème brûlée. The dinner is available from December 22 to 25 (with two seatings at 5:30pm and 8:30pm from December 23 to 25), and costs from ¥18,000 to ¥25,000, with wine pairings available from ¥6,000 to ¥8,000. Each guest receives a complimentary welcome glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne.
Let Them Eat (Christmas) Cake
Whether you’re catering your own Christmas lunch for friends and family, or you’re looking for that perfect corporate gift to send out to clients, Andaz Tokyo’s Pastry Shop has an inspiring line-up of playful pastries, sweets and cakes to choose from. Pastry Chef Okazaki has worked his magic once again, putting a flavor twist on his signature eclairs, and creating a range of exquisitely decorated Christmas cakes and hampers.
Cakes range from ¥3,000 to ¥5,500 (excluding consumption tax) and reservations will be accepted from November 1 (store pick-up between December 19-25), while a selection of eclairs and hampers will be on sale at Pastry Shop from November 21 to December 25.
Be Your Own Bartender
Now, this doesn’t mean that you’ll literally be mixing your own drinks at Andaz Tokyo’s Rooftop Bar – why would you want to do that, anyway, when the resident bartender is award-winning Ryuichi Saito? Rather, this special offer invites you to choose the base of your cocktail from a list of over 20 ingredients, including spirits, fruits, and teas, and Saito and co. will whip up an original drink just for you.
The “Be Your Own Bartender” offer costs ¥1,850, and is available from November 1 to December 31 at Rooftop Bar.
Mix Things Up
If you simply can’t choose between all the different ingredients on offer for your own unique drink, then turn your attention to Rooftop Bar’s Festive Cocktails, which have been crafted by the hotel’s mixologists. We recommend the hot mojito tea cocktail (¥1,800).
Available from December 1-31 at Rooftop Bar.
