Andaz Tavern, Toranomon Hills アンダーズ タヴァン 虎ノ門ヒルズ

Sitting atop the latest 'Hills' development in Tokyo, Toranomon Hills,  the Andaz is one of the newest additions to the Tokyo five-star hotel scene. A member of the Hyatt group, Andaz is a design-driven hotel which aims to immerse the guest in a contemporary world of Japanese culture (and the culture of wherever they are situated around the world). Great idea.

On New Year's Eve last year, I had the opportunity to try the Andaz Tavern on the 51st floor. The hotel had prepared a set menu and entertainment through the evening until the countdown. All in all, I found everything to be extremely well done and at the end of the evening the manager came personally to wish a happy new year. The food was superb and the paired wines, although middle of the road level, were very appropriate and tasty. Very much appreciated.

This is an extremely well run hotel by the look of it.
