Bars and Nightclubs Tokyo, Japan


If a contest were held for the World's Most Entertaining City, Tokyo would certainly rank among the finalists. Night and day, on a shoestring budget or on a big expense account, you can find fun here at every corner. Adult entertainment reaches its crescendo in Tokyo at night. The most popular playground among visitors is Roppongi, where you will find every form of fun known to man ( and woman ).

You can strut your stuff on the dance floor at Velfarre. Enjoy the world's most wondrous "eye candy" at Seventh Heaven. You can stop at numerous piano bars, jazz spots, karaoke clubs and mock casinos ( note: gambling for money is illegal in Japan, although playing for prizes is not ). And if you happen to tire of Roppongi's dusk-till-dawn excitement, there are always the urban play zones of Shibuya, Akasaka, west Ikebukuro, Yoshiwara ( near Asakusa ) and that notoriously bawdy section of Shinjuku known as Kabukicho.

Tokyo, 106-0032
Phone: +81 ( 0 )3 3475 1629


In the words of John Lennon: "Most peculiar, mama." The staff and management are easy to spot for they are all adorned in strange costumes, fitting in nicely with the decor of elaborate lights and such. It all helps set the tone for a wild night of drinking and dancing to songs from the 70s and 80s. The house DJ harbors over 30,000 LPs, making it easy to honor all requests. Weekends tend to get very crowded, attracting a young clientele. Oddly enough, Cuban cigars are sold here.

Club Asia is not like any other sleazy nightclub. This Shibuya hot-spot is not only popular with the local youngsters, but also foreigners and tourists from all over. If you like to enjoy your drink in a peaceful ambience with soothing music, then this place should not appear on your list.

Tokyo, TOKYO PREFECTURE 160-0022
Phone: +81 ( 0 )3 3341 0606

The best-known gay club in the area, this very cruisy club has been around for some ten years. It is usually very packed at weekends from midnight on, but rather empty during the week. Most of the customers are youngish ( 25-35 ) and looking to meet someone. The dance-floor doubles as a backroom for those ( much ) more intimately inclined. The music is extremely high energy and a pleasant mix of techno, Europop, house and J-pop. With the admission price you get one free drink.

Villa Blanca B-1 2-23-12 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku
Tokyo, 150-0001

Hyping itself as Tokyo's number one Mexican restaurant, the good food and lively Latin music that you get here helps this place to live up to its billing.
