Cocktails to celebrate centenary

As part of the second phase of its yearlong promotion to commemorate the hotel’s 100th anniversary, the Tokyo Station Hotel is holding a cocktail competition through Oct. 25, where guests can select the cocktail they think is suitable for the occasion.

Guests can choose from three cocktails created by bartenders of the hotel, that were chosen through a rigorous selection process by the hotel staff: 1915, Clematis and One White TSH.

The cocktails are served for ¥1,300 each (tax included, excluding 10 percent service charge) at bars Camellia and Oak, both on the second floor of the hotel.

The 1915, named after the year that the hotel was born, has sake as a base, with an additional touch of coconut liquor. Clematis is gin-based with violet liqueur, whereas One White TSH is made with white peach liqueur, accented with grenadine.

There will be a final showdown and announcement of the selected cocktail at a special event open to the public on Nov. 1 at the hotel.

Guests who buy all three cocktails during the period can enjoy special benefits, including voting rights to choose the cocktail they like, an original commemorative badge and a free coupon for the cocktail, which is valid from Nov. 2.

The Tokyo Station Hotel is connected to Tokyo Station. For more information or reservations, call 03-5220-0014, or visit www.tokyostationhotel.jp/100th/anniversary/.
