When they disassembled the Wright Imperial they took the old Imperial Bar and built it into the new hotel. There are several Wright originals in the bar including all the furniture. Its time travel into history.

I just wanted to report that Orudoinperiaruba is actually, "Old Imperial Bar" at the The Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. I don't know why tripavisor didn't pick this up, but I just thought it needs to be corrected and put right because it is such an institution. This bar is legendary, and needs to be represented properly.
