tokyo: mixx bar + lounge opening

there's no shortage of plush watering holes in tokyo, and just when you thought you've seen them all, a new stellar spot opens. such is the case with mixx, a bar + lounge in a part of roppongi that until now has been a no-go zone for hipsters. perched on the 36th floor of the lavish ana intercontinental hotel, this superspacious 600 sqm. spot was designed by tokyo-based design practice curiosity. yes, the views from up there are amazing but are heavily competing with the alluring sleek aesthetics. mixx's design is a playful exploration of light and shadows while fusing traditional japanese craftsmanship and art with modern design. the venue is divided in three different areas. there's an open bar, a main bar area with striking 10-metre long counter at the centre. last but not least there's the lounge, with intimate sofas tucked snugly into the zig-zag line of windows that surround the space. location: 1-12-33 akasaka, 36th floor [roppongi]. © curiosity
