A lounge 1967 was named after 3 guys who worked for this project and were all born in 1967. One is the producer, one is the director and the last one is our principal designer.
It is a European-style salon in Asia. Although its main theme is year 1967, you will recognize the timeless and borderless comfort there and wherever you come from, you will feel at ease there.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
1967 is a stylish lounge where you feel relaxed as if visiting a stylish friend’s salon with a large garden lounge. Surrounded by green plants, you will forget you are in Roppongi, one of the busiest streets in Tokyo.
When you enter the gorgeous and chic counter lounge, you will see the I counter along with the green plants, borderless between inside and outside, and hear the cool music.
In four private rooms, each room has each artist’s works themed on 1960s. You can enjoy luxurious artworks as if you were visiting an art gallery.
Various scenes have been set within a limited space in order to answer various guests’ requests. Above of all, 80% of the space is guest seats in garden up to 9PM. Along with getting excited towards midnight, the shutter will open and you will see total different and luxurious space has become a new and entertaining area.

As this is a periodic tenant, we have aimed to limit the budget and to recoup the costs of investment in a short term. We separated floors and terraced area and bottles of champagne and wine are set in a cooler whose duct is connected to a table so that every guest who sees it longs for it. The middle counter also invites guests to feel like drinking with standing.
