PLUSTOKYO

by

The biggest music lounge in Tokyo, and unquestionably one of the most stylish as well, PLUSTOKYO held its long-awaited grand opening this week on the top floor and rooftop of Kirarito Ginza.

Some would describe it as a club but in reality, it is so much more. On the 12th floor just past the reception, there is a 15-meter long gallery exhibiting artwork that will change over time. For the opening exhibition, the multifaceted platform Gas as Interface along with Yar present Neon Museum, a series of iconic signs, that will last until spring.

It is then just a short walk to the sleek asphalt-designed main bar which is 30 meters long and has great views of the city. Two B-BOY statues, designed by hip-hop sculptor Taku Obata, are placed at opposite ends of the bar. They will remain there throughout December.

The Lobby, the name given to the main room where people can enjoy lunch during the day or use as a dance floor at night, is very chic and classy. Along with gorgeous sofas, colorful plants, and wooden floor, there is also a huge painting of Mt. Fuji on one of the walls. It was painted by well-known sento (public bath) muralist Morio Nakajima. On the other side of the wall is a deep red version of Fuji that arguably looks even better.

Elsewhere on the main floor, there are two VIP Rooms; Rose, and Salon, the latter being for exclusive members only. There are also two more bars. The first is POPBAR, a pop-up bar that will feature collaborations with various drinks makers, brands, and shops. The other is Mixology Spirits Bang(k), a trendy bar serving only Japan-made craft spirits. The creative cocktails come highly recommended.

The rooftop will only be used for events. It is a wide-open space with fantastic views of both Tokyo Tower and Tokyo Skytree depending on which side you are on. The heaters will keep you warm during the winter months. In summer and autumn, you can enjoy barbeques, while in spring a merry-go-round will be set up.

Included in the food menu is a delightful burger, a sushi platter, and some Chinese-style spicy chicken, plus an assortment of desserts. A special brunch set can be enjoyed in the Lobby during the day with prices starting at ¥1,700. In the evenings, there are some light finger food options such as Japanese wafers, fruit, and foie gras.
