Louis Vuitton is ready to make a mark in the hospitality sector! As the latest announcement from WWD indicates, the luxury fashion house is set to open its very first restaurant in Osaka, Japan next month.
The restaurant – called Le Café V – was announced this weekend, and will be located on the top floor of of the brand’s new four-level Osaka Maison, feature a complete menu from the mind of famed chef, Yosuke Suga, an adjoining bar and a generously sized terrace. And right next to this very bar will be Sugalabo V, serving only dinner to a lucky few via an open kitchen mirroring the Tokyo branch of Sugalabo.
This looks to be the future for LVMH. As Louis Vuitton’s chairman and CEO, Michael Burke, has indicated – the company has its sights set on restaurants and even hotels as a potential avenue for future expansion.
Vuitton conscripted designer Tokujin Yoshioka who designs for its Objets Nomades travel objects, to create wireless phone charger plates, built into each table which inspired the restaurant’s tableware.
The entire building was put together by architect Jun Aoki, is to open on Feb. 1, while the restaurants are to start serving on Feb. 15.
