It’s the day of love! Valentine’s Day is a holiday commonly associated with couples. But, it started as a holiday to celebrate love, both romantic and platonic. Let’s express our love not just for partners, friends or family, but also love for music, the arts, food, and drinks. Embrace the love in the air and let’s enjoy a delicious night out for this special occasion!
Have you got a special day planned for you and your significant other? If you’re out in Tokyo and looking for an intimate place to grab a drink or some food, here are some of our recommendations!
For a low-key dinner:
Tucked in the quieter side of Shinjuku, this little gem has created an intimate yet homely ambience making it a great place for a quiet drink or two and some dinner. Equipped with a stone-fired oven, they’re serving up some of the best affordable pizzas and pasta, an array of tapas if you’re not super hungry. What’s great about Rize Mize is that you can have a nice meal without breaking the bank, so you can always save a little extra to grab an aperitif or a drink afterwards.
For the shisha chills:
Dimly lit and decorated with chandeliers and big art covering the walls, Sheyda provides a cool and exotic atmosphere to enjoy conversations over shisha. Their shishas are top-quality and experimental with flavours. Their DJ allows you to take a break from the bass and EDM often found in Roppongi. But be wary of the time, as this lounge turns into a club after hours so if you’re looking for personal time with your boo, Sheyda may be better to hit up in the early hours of the night.
For a few lush drinks:
Another spot in the Roppongi area, Mezzo is the place to go if you’re looking for something grand. The atmosphere here is just that. But what’s great about Mezzo is that the drinks here are super affordable. Almost too cheap. Allowing you to get the right amount of tipsy without paying for over-priced drinks elsewhere.
