DINING & FOODSthe BAR
An exclusive hideaway bar designed as a contemporary companion to the adjoining traditional tea room, the BAR MATCHA-TEI brings together art, architecture, and mixology. The bar was designed by Hiroshi Sugimoto and architect Tomoyuki Sakakida, using cedar wood and layered glass to create a minimalist space inspired by flowing water. There are just six seats along a counter cut from a single cedar slab. It is a private space for special moments like a tea ceremony, enjoying authentic hospitality, exclusive whiskeys, and seasonal cocktails by internationally renowned bartender Tsuyoshi Kimura. the BAR MATCHA-TEI is open on Friday and Saturday nights. The space can also be reserved for private events.
Fridays and Saturdays 7:00 p.m.–12 midnight (Last order 11:00 p.m.)
Capacity: Six people (reservations recommended)
Location: Green Tower (please visit the hotel reception counter for guidance to the bar)
Guests must be aged 20 or over to use the bar, except in cases where the space is booked for a private event.
