Toshi’s Living Room & Penthouse raison d'être is to produce rapture…moments of rapture for all those who come…moments where you’re happy to be alive and wanting to live forever. Sounds crazy. We know. It’s what we want to do.

Whatever happened at work or at home, whatever else is going on in your life, that’s all left at the door, the moment, Ponzu, greets you with a wag of a tail and atwinkle in his eye. You enter comforted by the assurance that, Ponzu, our door Morkie, senses niceness and barks at meanies. We have a no meaniesdoor policy and Ponzu's very strict in protecting of our home.
Performers at Toshi’s can expect unconditional love. When performers are given unconditional love; like children, they flourish. Toshi’s mantra to all his “children” is for them to soar. We want to see performers debut at Toshi’sand go on to catapult onto the world stage…beyond Toshi’s. Toshi’s Living Room & Penthouse is owned by a performer (toshi), who can also count beans, but visualizes that inspired performers = inspired guests = inspiredbean counting.
No BS. No advertisment. No hype. If you know about us, that’s because a friend told you. Toshi’s Living Room & Penthouse wants to remain simple, real and kick-ass. That’s our mission. That’s our duty. That’s our promise to you, guest and performer alike. That’s what makes us happy to be alive and wanting to live forever.
