Enjoy “Japanese x Italian” cuisine with seasonal ingredients and the refreshing colors of summer!

Turning the Hotel Into a Place to “Upgrade Oneself”

At LIVELY HOTELS, we strive to redefine the concept of hotels as places to “update oneself,” rather than merely functional spaces for sleeping. Our brand concept focuses on providing “experiential value” to guests, allowing them to gain some form of personal enhancement through their stay. Particularly, our flagship brand, “THE LIVELY,” aims to redefine the hotel as a gathering place for people, information, and opportunities from around the world. We aspire to offer a guest experience filled with stimulation and new discoveries with each visit. Therefore, we not only welcome staying guests but also provide opportunities for local residents and those interested in our hotel to visit and enjoy our facilities.

Experience the seasons with “Japanese x Italian” cuisine.

At the all-day dining restaurant “THE LIVELY KITCHEN FUKUOKA HAKATA,” we blend Japanese ingredients and tableware with Italian cooking techniques, adding trends and seasonal expressions to create modern Japanese-Italian cuisine. The dishes, delicately presented on elegant Japanese tableware, combine the chef’s meticulous attention to trends and seasonal expressions, resulting in unique and innovative plates. Each dish is crafted with consideration for not just the flavors but also the presentation style and story, offering a unique menu structure that provides surprise and discovery, all while maintaining casual service. We offer multiple course menus to cater to various needs, allowing even non-hotel guests to enjoy the extraordinary dining experience at our restaurant.

This summer, we have prepared course menus for both lunch and dinner that highlight seasonal ingredients and the refreshing colors of summer. Enjoy our signature dishes that showcase summer through their ingredients, sauces, and tableware, as well as a variety of dishes featuring seasonal and vibrant summer ingredients.

Dinner course “Wakatake”

The “Wakatake” dinner course features eight dishes, including the signature dish “Flounder and Citrus” themed around the color “young bamboo.” The lime-scented “Flounder and Citrus” pays homage to the summer Japanese classic “Kabosu-gama.” Additionally, enjoy seasonal summer ingredients like “Corn Soup” and “Pike Conger Spring Rolls.” For dessert, we recommend the refreshing “Myoga and Melon Granita,” a delightful combination of myoga and sweet melon, resembling a small shaved ice.
