The Palace Lounge

The Palace Lounge offers a luxuriously cozy and convivial setting – whether for cocktails or afternoon tea. A larger-than-life fireplace commands one side of the lofty living space while a grand white Steinway provides a grace note just opposite.

By day, kimono-clad staff offer 48 varieties of tea to accompany the afternoon tea service, while sunset cues the space’s transformation into a lively champagne & cocktail lounge with live Jazz accompaniment each evening.*

*Reservations for afternoon tea are accepted for weekday seatings between 1-3:00 pm

summer afternoon tea

The Palace Lounge’s ever popular afternoon tea service is artfully presented in an elegant, three-tiered jyubako lacquered box filled with bite-size sweets & savories as well as fresh fruits, including seasonal selections such as sesame & lemon eclair, coconut & mango lamington, green tea-flavored jelly, blueberry scone, sardine & tomato foccacia, vegetable sticks with lobster dip & guacamole dip, and temari-zushi of eel.

It’s the perfect medley of familiar afternoon tea delights paired with distinctive Japanese touches, including Japanese confectionery.

Our one-of-a-kind afternoon tea presentation is not to be missed…

JPY 4,200 per person | JPY 6,000 with a glass of champagne

*Afternoon tea is limited to 3 hours per seating


seasonal refreshments

In addition to our signature afternoon tea presentation, this season we’re delighted to debut shaved ice on our menu – the perfect refreshment when in need of a reprieve from Tokyo’s summer heat!

The first features a blend of the traditional flavors of matcha green tea & azuki beans with rice-flour dumplings and decorated with a touch of gold leaf, while the second is made of tangy mango purée and yogurt cream topped with delicious coconut powder and generous slices of mango.

Price: JPY 1,500 each

For those who prefer their ice cubed rather than shaved, we’re also serving some wonderfully flavorful Mango PenicillinsWatermelon Salty Dogs and Peach Bellinis.

Come in. Cool down. Linger awhile…



a collaboration with hakkaisan

We’re so excited about our highly anticipated collaboration with renowned sake brand Hakkaisan that we’re sharing a sneak peak of the Hakkaisan-inspired afternoon tea that we’ll be offering between September 1 – November 30.

The limited-edition afternoon tea presentation will feature sweets & savories infused with Hakkaisan sake and amazake as well as some of the key ingredients used in the production of sake – such as a sake-flavoured foie gras terrine, mozzarella bites pickled with miso made of sake kasu, amazake focaccia with salmon and prosciutto, koji-flavored roasted tea crème brulée and sake kasu-flavoured scones.

We’ll also be serving up two original cocktails that’ll pair beautifully with our afternoon tea. The first, Usumomiji, is inspired by the autumn leaves of Mt. Hakkai and is made of an airy blend of our signature 1-1-1 sake and plum wine (both produced by Hakkaisan) as well as cassis syrup. The second, Tsumugi, presents a creamy and refreshing mix of our sake, amazake (sweet sake), fresh cream and advocaat liqueur.
