Do you love looking at architectural models, but simply can't spare enough time during the day? If so, then this late-night architecture-model cafe might be just the place for you.
Wander around the spacious interior and draw inspiration from miniatures of iconic works like Le Corbusier's "Villa Savoye," Mario Botta's "House in Ligornetto," OMA's "Maison Bordeaux," and Philip Johnson's "Glass House." There are a dozen or so major buildings to inspect, along with smaller one-off projects, so take your time. They're open until 4am.
Simple cafe-bar fare like proscuitto platters and Caprese salads supplement the usual coffee and desserts. Curry rice and the like are served at lunchtime, and party-plan prix-fixe menus featuring fondue are available for evening get-togethers.
Wines are priced from Y3,500-15,000 per bottle, although there are a few Champagnes in the over-Y50,000 range. Standard cocktails are Y800 and assorted mocktails are Y700 each. There's also a wide selection of coffee variations during cafe time (10am-6pm).
