We’re all fans of the finer things in life, but would you be willing to book a flight to experience the first-ever Louis Vuitton cafe and restaurant in Japan? The jury’s still out.
WWD broke the news about two weeks ago that Louis Vuitton’s flagship location in Osaka, Japan will house a new luxe dining experience in a month. The cafe, called Le Café V, as well as the restaurant, named Sugalabo V, will both be located on the top floor of the four-story store.

#TheStyleListNews: Luxury fashion house @louisvuitton is opening its first ever restaurant next month, and we can’t keep calm. The café and restaurant will be located at its Osaka flagship store, and will include an exquisite menu designed by Japanese chef Yosuke Suga. Post the development of the restaurant opening a hotel could be next on the list. While @tiffanyandco will be opening its first European Blue Box Cafe in @harrods, Louis Vuitton announced that it would open a Louis Vuitton café in Mayfair London. We can’t wait for these cafés to open their doors and indulge in a new dining experience. . . . #fashion #luxurybrand #newrestaurant #louisvuittonrestaurant #osaka #louisvuittoncafe #tiffanyandco #blueboxcafe
Louis Vuitton is not the first luxury brand to dip their toes into the hospitality industry. Ralph Lauren has a massively popular restaurant in New York and a coffee bar in London. Meanwhile Burberry operates Thomas’ Cafe in London.
Le Café V’s menu will be curated by a renowned Japanese chef Yosuke Suga. And while we don’t know what the menu will host yet, the restaurant will be inspired by chef Suga’s Tokyo restaurant Sugalabo. The latter is super exclusive to get into and we anticipate the same exclusivity for the two LV eateries.
So, who’s flying to Tokyo to try them out?
