B Bar Marunouchi
Crystal. The sparkling matter is celebrated in all its glory at B Bar Marunouchi – which is hardly surprising given its connections with renowned crystal makers Baccarat. The Parisian company has opened three bars in Japan in recent years, in Roppongi, Osaka and Marunouchi.
With its sleek towers, designer shopping centres and smart cafes, Marunouchi is currently in the midst of a stylish makeover. Head to the Baccarat boutique located in the Kokusai Building and head downstairs to the basement bar. Here, moody spotlights illuminate the dramatic space, which is stylishly fitted with a 12 metre long Asamera tree counter, sultry red sofas, leather seating – and of course industrial quantities of high-quality crystal.
As well as featuring heavily in the décor – an ornamental wall of rows of glasses refracts light across the bar – all cocktails are, of course, served in nothing other than Baccarat’s finest glassware.
B Bar Roppongi is located at Roppongi Hills, Roppongi Keyakizaka St., 6-12-1 Roppongi, Minato-ku, tel: 03 5414 2907. Open 4pm-4am (midnight Sun).
