Additionally, there are unique amenities such as a lobby bar, rooftop bar, Japan’s only cocktail bar specializing in punch, a modern brasserie, and a fully equipped gym with state-of-the-art machines.

The party at Tokyo EDITION Ginza on March 14th was held across the Lobby Bar on the 1st floor and the Punch Room on the 2nd floor. The Lobby Bar, situated right inside the entrance, exudes an elegant ambiance with its gold-themed decor, ivory-upholstered armchairs, and spacious sofas. It typically functions as a café and bar, offering locally roasted coffee, pastries, fresh-pressed juices, and even breakfast all day long.

As you ascend the staircase, you’ll find the Punch Room cocktail bar, inspired by 19th-century private clubs in London. It boasts spacious sofas, low tables, and warm lighting, creating an incredibly cozy and inviting atmosphere. With both urban sophistication and classical elements, it strikes a perfect balance between grandeur focal points and subtle touches.
