Cloak and dagger

    Secrets, secrets can be very fun, especially when most locals are in the dark. As speakeasies continue to catch fire across major world markets, Matsutora is still a well-kept secret, despite its trendy neighborhood location (Ebisu). Once you find it, you will know the atmosphere is different than anywhere you’ve been right away. There are no lights, just a giant hearth in the middle of the room. There is no music, just the crackling sound of the burning fire. There are no menus, just bowls of seasonal vegetables and dried fish to accompany your cocktail of choice. The very dark yet intimate setting is perfect for a quiet respite from the bright noise of Tokyo, a calm conversation over a refreshing cocktail or finding dark corners for an intimate date. Time to work your magic.
