Luxurious lounge only for couples opens in Tokyo

By Krista Rogers, SoraNews24

We’ve seen dining establishments with interesting admissions policies pop up in Tokyo before, including this women-only restaurant and a pasta place that explicitly bans couples from dining on one night of the year. Now there’s a new intimate lounge in town with a similar gimmick–only couples are allowed admittance.

The Private Lounge opened on May 10 in Tokyo’s upscale Akasaka district. Its most distinctive feature is that most of the rooms are semiprivate or private, making it an ideal space to deepen your relationship with that special someone.


The thrill begins with a secret entrance involving four numbered panels and three doors in order to enter the interior. You’ll receive instructions with a special code when booking a reservation.


Each type of space within the lounge comes with a different associated charge. The different room types to choose from are as follows :

Floor counter seats: no charge

VIP 1: Floor sofa (3,000 yen)

VIP 2: Semiprivate room (5,000 yen)

VIP 3: Fully private room with bed (10,000 yen)

It’s important to note that snacks and drink are charged separately from the room fee. Beer begins at 864 yen and upwards, while whisky, cocktails, shochu, and various shots begin at 1,000 yen each. However, take note that wine is significantly pricier, beginning at 9,000 yen a bottle. The Private Lounge is definitely not a place you would go to for a lively night out, but rather somewhere to enjoy an intimate conversation with your significant other.


The restaurant said it wanted to set itself apart with an unexpected interior and appeal to sophisticated adult tastes with the inclusion of beds in some areas. The website describes the decor as “eccentric and luxury [sic].”

Reservations for The Private Lounge are currently being taken either by phone (+81-03-6441-3383) or LINE. If you’re looking for something a little more sophisticated and elegant for your next couples night out, this could be the perfect place to try.

Personally, I'm too old and too married for this to be of any interest to me, but I'm sure many of us would have had dinner dates where we wished the bedroom wasn't quite so far away...

Ha ha ha - fully private room with a bed. And what would you need a bed for, prey-tell. Just to lounge back and enjoy your over priced drinks I presume? Does this place have to have the same permits as short term hotels?

is it some kind of swinger club ?

I’d be looking for hidden cameras.

9000 for a bottle of wine? You've got to be joking. Couple of beers and shots will be enough
