Velours, Tokyo

Tokyo’s over-the-top 80s gets a repeat at this Minami-Aoyama venue, Velours, where French furnishings abound and crystal chandeliers broaden the cozy space.

Made popular for its glitzy, glamorous ambiance, the downtown lounge is kept mysterious dim. It’s almost like a modern-day masquerade, without the ball and the costly masks. Patrons come back again and again because it’s a chic, sophisticated space, save from the sleazy late-night stain that typically clouds most trendy places.
