Sumptuous is the
word for the Mandar-
in Bar at the Man-
darin Oriental Hotel
in Nihonbashi. The
interior by Ryu
Kosaka, with richly
tactile accents by
textile designer
Reiko Sudo, is chic
and inviting, domi-
nated by seductive
earth tones. The
scale of everything
here, from the
bathtub-sized chairs
with gargantuan
cushions to the
fireplace that
stretches nearly two
floors to the ceil-
ing, feels playfully
large. The bar it-
self is rather spa-
cious, with two main
seating areas on
either side of the
central bar.

The extensive drinks
menu - the wine list
is its own separate
tome - features
original, mostly
fruity, cocktails
from Y1800. The
Ancient City, a
blend of tequila,
Cointreau, and pas-
sion fruit, lacked
impact but was
greatly improved by
an additional shot
of tequila. There
are flavored marti-
nis to suit every-
one's fancy, but the
classic and dirty
martinis (Y2100)
can't be beat.

Malt whiskey by the
glass (Y1995 -
Y4000) and bottles
of sake like Okuno-
matsu 88 Tokubetsu
Junmai-shu (Y5040)
and Tatsuriki Junmai
Ginjo (Y12,600) are
also available.
Snacks from adjacent
restaurants Sense
and Signature can be
ordered until 11:00.


The Mandarin Bar
fills up after 8pm,
so you may have to
wait for a table. A
live jazz band per-
forms nightly for
the relaxed and
casual crowd, a mix
of locals and visi-
tors. No cover
charge.
