A slice of Parisian flavor in central Tokyo

The Hotel Rose Garden Shinjuku proudly presents this year’s sumptuous, yet affordable all-you-can-drink beer garden at its French and Italian restaurant, In The Garden 135, until Sept. 7.

In The Garden 135 is a small luxury restaurant on the first floor of the hotel’s annex. The bright and welcoming interior was designed with warm wood tones and the outdoor terrace is surrounded by a lush garden. The space allows diners to escape the noise of urban life and enjoy a hint of Parisian summer in the center of Tokyo.

Guests can choose from a fixed plan with an all-you-can-drink menu or an a la carte menu. Mongolian mutton barbecue (known as “Genghis Khan” in Japanese), using fresh meat from Hokkaido, is also available as a terrace-exclusive course. Guests can enjoy Grolsch, Holland’s oldest high-end beer, drawn fresh from the barrel. The beer is included in the all-you-can-drink menu.

The menu includes three all-you-can-drink plans — the Garden 135 for ¥3,900, the Grill Mist for ¥5,000 and a barbecue plan for ¥5,400.

The beer garden is open from 5:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. (11 p.m. on Fridays between July 20 and Aug. 24). Menus with free-flow drinks are available for two hours and require reservations.

The Hotel Rose Garden Shinjuku is five minutes from Nishi-Shinjuku Station. For more information, visit www.hotel-rosegarden.jp or call 03-3360-1533.
