Rather than bringing menus to the guests, the staff brings a basket of fresh seasonal fruit for its guests to select from. From peaches to passion fruit, pears to pineapple, the bartender pairs the selected fruit with a liquor of choice. Ken selected watermelon, which the bartender shook with vodka. Kristen picked a peach, which was a prime selection for the Japanese summer. The bartender paired the peach with Schnapps. I went for the passion fruit, and the bartender sliced it up and infused it into some champagne.
The plush seating makes for a very relaxed atmosphere, and the closed off lounge areas are suitable for intimate dates or even countless hours of catching up with old friends. These Library Lounge was definitely a highlight during my time in Tokyo. Many thanks to Kristen for donning the tour guide role that day. We headed back to the hotel for a little shut eye because we planned to be back up in just a couple of hours to head to the world famous Tsukiji Market. Until then, let's all get S.O.F.A.T.
