A Japanese friend took me to this bar in Omotesando, and I honestly couldn’t tell that this is a bar even after arriving at its door. Apparently, it’s hidden behind this white wall.

東京當地朋友帶我去的這家酒吧,位置在表參道,不過到了門口我都還沒認出來這是個什麽東西…原來,酒吧藏在白牆之後。

Entering the bar through the slender (and very discreet) door, we arrived at Wall. It’s an elongated space brought alive by the gorgeous, lush vertical garden behind the bar, put together by famed French artist / vertical garden designer Patrick Blanc. I have always liked his works in Paris, and it was quite a pleasant surprise to run into him again in Tokyo.

推了中間那道細門入內,竟是另一番天地。狹長的空間裏最引人注目的是吧台後方整面的植物牆。豐盛的、綠油油的,很美。打造這片植物牆的是法國藝術家/垂直花園名設計師 Patrick Blanc,以前就非常喜歡他在巴黎幾個作品,在東京能碰上真是挺令人驚喜的。

Upon being seated, we were first served the halve of a fresh fig. Apparently it’s typical in Japanese bars to be served a small bite like this before or along with your first drink.

Wall 的小點心是半個新鮮無花果,很甜美。在日本,似乎很多酒吧就會提供這樣一款小食,通常在第一杯酒之前或同時送上。

The drinks menu only lists wine and whisky, though classic and a few seasonal cocktails can also be made upon request.

酒單上只有葡萄酒、威士忌等,不過一般的經典調酒也可以點,也有季節性的水果調酒。

Unfortunately I was not a fan of my fig cocktail, though my friend quite enjoyed her kiwi version.

我點了一杯不太好喝的無花果雞尾酒,朋友倒是挺喜歡她的奇異果調酒的。

Though the cocktails really were nothing to sing about (quite expensive too, priced around 2,200, seating fee extra), but I’m still recommending it to you for the beautiful space. Having said that, I’d probably let go of cocktails and go with the wines and whiskies next time if I come back. My friend mentioned that Wall also does light lunches, and I can imagine how beautiful the vertical garden would look during day light…though I’m not sure how tasty the food would be.

雖然調酒不怎麽樣,價格也不便宜(調酒大約 2,200日幣,座位費另加)但環境很美,所以推薦給你(在這裏喝酒的都是打扮漂亮的人,氣氛私密頗適合約會)。不過下次來的話,我應該會放棄調酒,點杯葡萄酒或著威士忌純飲。聽朋友說 Wall 也有提供午餐,我想那座垂直花園在自然光裏應該也很漂亮,可以白天來瞧瞧(好不好吃我就不知道了)。
