Innovative Event Venue
Residential atmosphere and culinary entertainment await

Grand Hyatt Tokyo has revamped its second-floor event space to unveil a new venue concept: The Residence. It is the first major renovation since the hotel opened its doors 11 years ago.

The enhancement reflects the Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s pursuit of excellence, as a leading hotel that is ever ready to offer novel products and services.

The second-floor event space has been transformed into an innovative venue, offering an artistic residential atmosphere and entertaining culinary experiences to be enjoyed in a versatile and comfortable setting.

Two event venues are now available to guests, Residence Basil and Residence Anise.

In Residence Basil, a lively show kitchen with bronze accents and spotlights turns the room into a functional space offering culinary entertainment. The atmosphere stimulates all five senses and presents a distinctive dining experience, not to mention an array of imaginative event possibilities.

Residence Anise emanates comfort, has state-of-the-art lighting, and features two large screens. The result is a sophisticated yet intimate setting.

The renovation extends to the foyer, a space that has been reinvented. It now is a stylish gathering place called The Gallery, designed to enable guests to spend quality time there, relaxing together during an event or a party.

The foyer has been designed with a residential focus, to make guests feel they are at a friend’s home. The sofas, bookshelves, hat racks, and charming artistic décor serve to enhance the ambience.

In addition, debuting with the upgrade are six private spaces, together called The Salon. An area with rooms such as these had been requested by guests, for use by brides and their attendees on their wedding day.

The rooms feature an oversized mirror, a make-up dresser, and ample space for the bride to prepare for one of the most memorable times of her life.

The Salon can also be used as a green room to accommodate VIPs who are waiting to present at conferences, events, and parties.
