Tokyo Clubs & Bars - A to Z

Post  Nathan on Mon Mar 24, 2008 12:37 am

Ace A fresh new club in ni-chome where gay men, lesbians and their friends can gather for cocktails and chill out to some pretty cool music. If you haven't been there already, you got to check out Club Ace.

Aegaen The best Greek food in town. Gyros, moussaka, tzatziki served in a cozy taverna setting.
Admire the original wood carvings of Nik, the owner. Five meters from the pedestrian bridge straddling Meiji dori.

A.M.B. The original Asian pop music bar in Shinjuku. Toho Kaikan, B1, next to Shinjuku Koma Gekijo. For more info (3209-4871)

Angkor Wat Big, noisy and crowded, and with reason: Angkor Wat is working at the peak of its powers these days. Just say o-makase ("whatever you like") and they'll feed you to satiety for 3,000 yen or so a head. All-Cambodian staff. Juken Bldg., 1F, 1-38-13 Yoyogi, Shibuya-ku (3370-3019)

Apti French movie posters and pastis advertisements comprise the wrapping to something very hard to find beyond the borders of Franco proper: good French food at reasonable prices. 2,800 yen buys a three coarse dinner (1000 yen a lunch) of scrumptious bourgeois style dishes and tasty desserts. There's the fruits de mer quiche, beef in red wine sauce, and lamb cotelette-with touches like salmon tartare and a smidge of caviar on the side. Mouth-popping good. 11:30am-1:30pm & 6-10:30pm; closed Sat., Sun. & some Mon. 3-19-16 Ikejiri, Setagaya-ku (3413-5133)

All-you-can-eat for 3,500 yen. Belly dance show every Fri. & Sat. 5-5-11 Akasaka, Minato-ku (3505-5282)

First right off of Aoyama dori after Omote-Sando towards Gaienmae and then second left. 1,500 yen w/ 1 drink (3405-5156)

Tokyo Clubs & Bars - B

Post  Nathan on Mon Mar 24, 2008 12:40 am

Bachelor Party New York-style strip club up the hill in Shibuya. 5F, Dr. Jeekahns, 2-4-5 Maruyamacho (3770-1399)

Baobab Serving up the exotic, from piranha to crocodile, this hand-made outpost from South Africa is built to resemble a thatched cottage. Excellent rattlesnake and Turkish pizza made by real Turks. Proprietor Gerrith is a hunter's hunter. Akiba-cho, 135-1, Totsuka-ku, Yokohama (045-814-2387) Take the Yokosuka line to Higashi-Totsuka station.

Bar Aoyama Groovy, arty hangout with diverse DJ lineup. 8 pm-4 am; Sun., 7 pm-2 am. About 8 min. up Roppongi-dori from Shibuya Sta. Daikyo Bldg., 4-5-9 Shibuya (3498-4415)

Bar Bee Around the corner from Kinsmen is the latest addition to Nichome's dives. Open since April, Bar Bee's mirrored walls and all-black decor create the illusion of space so necessary in the confines of most of these tiny bars. Manager Shara, who can speak some English, says that Bar Bee attracts a 50/50 mix of men and women. Shara chooses R&B or latin tunes for her customers, and says she wants to offer a laid-back atmosphere. With her relaxed, surfer-gal image, that doesn't seem like such a hard task. She says that couples and friends buzz to Bar Bee to hang out, chat, and just bee. Bar Bee accommodates about 15 (seated) plus some space for standing. The cover charge is 400 yen and includes a snack. Drinks start from 800 yen. Shinjuku 2-18-10 2F, 8 pm-4 am, closed Tues. (3352-2923)

Bar Drop Tokyo's hip nightlife starting to spread further out. This Kichijoji hang out features techno and house and Weds and UK indy guitar pop on Sats. Also look for the minimal/Chicago event EXQS ("excuse"). 1,500-2,000 yen w/ 1 drink. On Itsukaichi dori near Kichijoji station (0422-20-0737)

Barbacoa Grill You can always tell if it's a good Brazilian joint when there are Brazilians dining there. Buffet style all-you-can-eat churrasco sets and a killer salad bar will have you Carnival dancing in no time. Evergreen Bldg., B1 Jingumae 4-3-24, Shibuya-ku, off Omotesando dori (3796-0571)

Bar-O Breathe easy and drink hard on the outdoor terraces atop Vision Network in Omotesando. 3F, 5-17-6 Jingu-mae (3407-6845)

Bau Haus The '70s and '80s come alive at this Rock and Roll lounge. If you're lucky, you can catch the staff in a live jam session. Now in their new location, as good as ever . . . Reine Roppongi Bldg., 2F, 5-3-4 Roppongi (3746-0244)

Beach Loft Cafe Soho-style artists' loft atmosphere with California cuisine and no coffee. Open until 4 am. Moriguchi Bldg., 1-15-1 Nishi Azabu (3478-6855)

Belgo Not from London, but a very European Beer Pub. Guinness & Hoegaarden on draught, and over 70 bottles of beer. On Tues: Belgian Nights, Hoegaarden 600 yen, on Thurs. Irish Nights, Guiness 700 yen. Opposite the Shibuya Police Sta. on Meiji-dori. B1F, 3-18-7 Shibuya (3409-4442)

Bellini Pizza and Pasta Pizza Margherita (Yen 1,400), a true hand-crafted work of art, thin, crisp and lathered in Mozzarella cheese, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil. Or the Linguini alla Pescatora with shrimp, clams, squid, and octopus in a delicate tomato sauce (Yen 1,800). Open the menu, point, and let chef Yasuya Sukita take you into rapture. He may recommend the Pollo al Forno oven-baked chicken, for example, in a balsamic sauce with fresh organic ingredients - "Because we believe in good health and good taste." Open from 11:30am-11pm every day, tea time 2pm-5pm. Shuwa Roppongi Bldg. 1F, 3-14-12, Roppongi, Minato-ku (3470-5650)

Bellini Trattoria We know. Deja vu. But wait. Unlike its Roppongi older brother, this trattoria member of the Bellini restaurant family is a little more private, a little more sophisticated, and a little smaller. Here you can peruse the Antipasto menu in an intimate setting, summon the waiter to order a crispy house Caesar salad followed by a generous portion of the Bengasine alle genovese (thick noodles in a homemade basil sauce) or the Involtini maiale con asparagi (tender pork wrapped around asparagus in a mustard sauce). Impress your date with your Berlitz-calibre mastery of Italian, but even if you speak this particular romance language, a few meals at the more "upscale Bellini" will have you speaking the lingo in no time. Open: 11:30am-11pm daily. Lunch last order at 3pm, dinner service from 5:30pm. 3-5-6 Ginza, Chuo-ku (Exit A9 at Ginza station) (3535-6010)

Bernd's Bar

Billy Barew's Beer BarA backstreet bar where loud pop music is the minus, good brews and an unforced cosmopolitan ambiance the plus. Recommended beers: Timmerman Gueze and Hoegaarden White. 1-17-10 Takadanobaba, Shinjuku-ku (3209-0952)

Bincho

Bindi Delightful retro basement decor in the linoleum floor/yellowing acoustic tile ceiling mode. Delightful owners too. It's also one of the surprisingly few places in town where you can get a hot, southern-style palesevindaloo. 10:30am-2pm & 6-9:30pm. 7-10-10 Minami Aoyama, Minato-ku (3409-7114)

Birdland

Bobby's Bar

Gate City Osaki, B1, 1-11-1 Osaki, Shinagawa-ku 141-0032 (3495-1335)

Blue Note Tokyo

Blues Alley Japan Chic, stylish restaurant/bar serving Mediterranean food. Live jazz performance every Thur. & Fri. Meguro Station Hotel, B1, 1-3-14 Meguro, Meguro-ku (5496-4381)

Brasserie Bernard Bernard's lunch on a fine day out on the lawn at the branch at L'institut Franco-Japonais de Tokyo makes Tokyo's most convincing argument for the Gallic way of life. 15 Ichigaya Funagawaramachi, Shinjuku-ku (3260-9639)

Gesshinkyo Seasonal roots, greens and wild mountain herbs punctuate the Zen-influenced vegetarian fare that's based more in the body-cleansing kaiseki tradition than fake meats and tofu hot-dogs. Elegant 10 course set meals of eggplants, gamadofu withwasabi, garden peas, pumpkin, mushrooms and tsukemono. But the house offers one selection each day for a set price of 10,000 yen. Drinks extra. 6-10pm. 4-24-12 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku (3796-6575)

Golden Gate

Gozenbo Chinese fare combining dishes from the lesser known Yunnan region with more popular chuka comestibles. But all with an emphasis on healthy, light and organic/free-range whenever possible. Lots of dishes, such as the qiguo casserole, contain medicinal and health-inducing herbs to keep the body warm and pure. If you want MSG, you probably should bring your own. 11-12am. 6-8-15 Roppongi, Minato-ku (3470-2218)

Grass Smallish dive emphasizing hip-hop, reggae and house music. Cute Monday is hangout night for young ladies. 3-25-12 Jingu-mae (3497-0303)

Great Punjab Not a black tie, see-and-be-seen, spacious supper club kind of place. You go, you rub shoulders with real Indian people for a no-nonsense satisfying meal. Good food for a good price. They also have a fabulous lunch special on weekdays. 11:30am-2:30pm (open for special lunch), 5:30pm-5am (for all-night dining) 3F, 4-8-8 Roppongi, Minato-ku (3404-3166)

Gu Takes a casual '60s approach to health food in classic Shimo decor, from the mismatched old wooden tables and chairs to the piles of rastafarian tracts by the door. Try the 980 yen genmai teishoku: a main dish like a curry, a couple of salad-like side dishes, brown rice and pickles. 2-26-8 Kitazawa, Setagaya-ku (3485-2187)

Tokyo Clubs & Bars - H

Post  Nathan on Mon Mar 24, 2008 12:58 am

Hachi Club + salon. Mon.: Love & Hair; Wed.: Latina, DJ: Tetsu, etc. Fun and cozy little club that plays a variety of non-trendy dance music like funk, soul, salsa, acid jazz, R & B, etc. Recommended by leading Japanese composer Seigen Ono. From Shibuya go up Roppongi dori, it's just before the Aoyama tunnel on the left. Weekday 2,000 yen w/ 2 drinks; weekend 2,500 yen w/ 2 drinks. 9 pm-5 am. Aoyama Bld. 2,3 F, 4-5-9 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku (5469-1676)

Hanako Hanako's extremely cozy conditions inspire the usual jokes about hunchbacked bugs. A genial mood more than offsets the lack of elbow room. "It's a good place to come on your own," says Mika. Most of her customers are Japanese women in their early twenties. "Customers can bring their own CDs and listen to them. There's also a video." Hanako's cover charge, which includes tasty homemade snacks, will set you back 1,000 yen. Drinks run from 900 yen. 2-15-8 Shinjuku, 8 pm-3 am, closed Mon. (3352-4862)

Hard Rock Cafe American food and portions in this authentic dinner. 5-4-20 Roppongi (3408-7018)

Harlem New hip-hop spot in Shibuya love hotel area. 2F, Dr. Jeekahns, 2-4 Maruyamacho (3461-8806)

Hayashi

Hinazushi All-you-can-eat (4,300 yen) sushi restaurant. All-you-can-drink for 1,200 yen. 11:30am-2:30pm & 5-11pm; Sat., Sun. & hol., noon-11pm. Beach Restaurant Row, O-daiba Kaihin Koen Sta. (Yurikamome Line from Shinbashi Sta) 1-3-5 Daiba, Minato-ku (5531-0017) 13 other branches, such as Mejiro (3205-7552) and Shibuya (3462-1003)

Hobgoblin Tokyo Brewery Pub & Restaurant. Newly opened pub in Akasaka, two minutes from the station. We stock the largest selection of draught beer in Tokyo. Lunch and dinner served everyday. British roast served Sundays from 1pm. (3585-3681)

Hokkaien A truly Chinese emphasis on cooking (first-rate) over decor (getting scruffier by the minute) They excel at just about everything they do, which is a lot: The menu feels like a medium-sized telephone book. Start your explorations with the Peking-style specialties, or just choose a course (from 5,000 yen) 11:30am-2pm & 5-10:30pm, daily. 2-12-1 Nishi Azabu, Minato-ku (3407-8507)

House of Chile Hideaway like a hut on a tropical Island in the middle of Roppongi. Hot & spicy food such as Thai and Mexican Cajun cooking. 1F Nakazima Bldg., 3-8-11 Roppongi (3402-0372)

Home A natural food restaurant using only organic foodstuffs and locally caught fish. Next-door is Hiroba, a buffet restaurant. 11am-2pm & 5-9pm. Crayon House, B2, 3-8-15 Kita Aoyama, Minato-ku (3406-6409)

Hong Phat A simple Vietnamese place, much like the dozen or so others that have sprung up around town in the past couple years. Two notable features at this one: it's just around the corner from Takadanobaba Station, and they have the excellent export version of Vietnam's 333 Beer (ask for ba-ba-ba) Recommended: beef noodles, chicken salad and Vietnamese-style okonomiyaki and curry. 11:30am-2pm & 5-11pm; Sun. & hol., noon-10pm. Closed Mon. Suki Bldg., 2F, 4-9-10 Takadanobaba, Shinjuku-ku (3366-1371)

Hug Right next door to Hanako, Hug is managed by fast-talking Chako. She has been running Hug for 2 years, and while she won't necessarily greet you with a HUG, Chako will most assuredly be welcoming. Hug has 2 floors and features a bar and karaoke facilities (including tambourines for the particularly enthusiastic) and plays Yusen when the karaoke machine is taking a rest. People tend to come alone, and while clientele are mainly 20-ish, Chako says that Hug attracts those in their 30s and 40s too. She says that things can get wild during the week as well as on weekends. A maximum of 15 or 16 can sit at the bar, and after that, you'll have to tough it out. Hug's cover charge is 1,700 yen and drinks start from 800 yen. Shinjuku 2-15-8, 9 pm-6 am (5379-5085)

Huong Viet The entryway to this hole-in-the-wall hideaway of Vietnamese cooking is dingy if not dilapidated, but inside it's bright, friendly and full of street-level authenticity. Try a banh xeo pancake (the Vietnamese o-konomiyaki), exotic gyozas of minced pork and tree fungus and wash it down with a bottle of Ba-ba-ba beer. Most fare is aromatically tasty, but you'll find a few spicy characters among the clientele as well. 5-11pm; Sun. from noon; closed Mon. 5-3-3 Higashi Nakano, Nakano-ku. (3364-6304)

Tokyo Clubs & Bars - M

Post  Nathan on Mon Mar 24, 2008 1:15 am

Madame Mar is the formidable owner of the establishments that bear her name. Madame Mar is the younger and more spacious little sister to Mars Bar. The long bar means that patrons can sit and chat comfortably while Madame Mar pours the drinks and provides the entertainment (sometimes in the form of shouting out which of her customers are single). With lots of regulars and bar staff who know their customers, Madame Mar is one great all-female hangout. The cover charge of 1,500 yen will get you a homemade snack, and if you're hungry, you can order a bite to eat from the menu of bar nibbles. Be sure to catch Madame Mar's monthly party (on the last Saturday of every month) and keep your eyes open for special events advertised at the bar. Shinjuku 2-7-2-2F, Sun-Thu 6 pm-12.00 pm, Fri-Sat 6 pm-2 am (3354-7515)
Madame Mar boasts its own homepage: http://www.bekkoame.or.jp/~mars85/index.html

Mad Mulligans
Lunch meals all for 1000 yen. All night Happy Hour every Saturday. Kyuei Bldg. 2F, 3-18-21 Toranomon, Minato-ku (3578-8980).

Mannebiches The Gaelic renaissance is under way and Mannebiches is part of this new ave. An herb garden outside, a bread oven in the back and an equilibrium of quality, ambiance and price that's close to ideal, even though it's tucked away well off the main drag in Nezu. 1-16-8 Nezu, Bunkyo-ku. (3824-0484)

Mareichan Hasn't quite made up its mind as to whether it's a proper restaurant, a fast-food joint or a bottle-keep snack bar. Good, inexpensive food in any event, from noodle and rice dishes (we like the nasi lemak) to full-bore Malaysian curries. 3-22-6 Nishi Ikebukuro, Toshima-ku (5391-7638)

Mariks Bar Every last Saturday, soul music and dance. Drink and food from Y500. 2F 5-37-4 Kanamachi, Katsushika-ku (3608-9090)

Mars Bar At the ripe old age of 13, only Mars Bar comes close to Sunny's track record as the oldest lesbian bar around. Interestingly, a bento is included in the rather pricey cover charge of 3,000 yen, so you won't go hungry in manager Yoko's presence. Mars Bar's customers can listen to rap or hip hop or try their luck at karaoke. Yoko says both singles and couples flock to Mars Bar for its friendly atmosphere. Shinjuku 2-15-13 3F, Mon-Thu 8 pm-3 am, Fri-Sun 8 pm-5 am, no closing day (3354-7923)

Mikonos The Tokyo/Yokohama population cluster's most famous Greek restaurant and deservedly so. Cheerful and bright. Reasonable rates for delicious dishes of lamb chop, herb-laden chicken souvlaki, salads teeming with black olives and feta cheese and finger foods with garlic mashed potato dip. There are even half dishes. But be prepared to wait your turn-reservations only accepted for parties of seven or more. 6-11:30pm. Closed Tue., some Wed. 1-104 Honmokucho, Yokohama-shi (045-623-9465)

Milk Punk, rock and alternative acts from around the globe join the cream of Tokyo's rock bands. (Thur. & Fri.) with DJs and separate lounge areas. 3,000 yen w/ 2 drinks. Mon.: The Rock '70s-'90s. Tue.: Rock & Pops '60s-'70s. 1st Wed.: Junkadelic. Thur.: Alternaste. Fri.: Kaz & K.K. Roob 6 Bldg., B1 & B2, 1-13-3 Ebisu Nishi (5458-2826)

Mission Stunning interior. On the outskirts of Roppongi, but worth the walk. From 8 pm. 3,000 yen (male); 2,500 yen (female). Jule A Bldg., B1, 1-10-10 Azabu Juban, Minato-ku (3583-6332)

Mix Crowded, smoky, friendly, major plus: always someone dancing. Soul, R & B and reggae, with occasional hip-hop and acid jazz. Early to mid-week dance haven. 3-6-19 Kita Aoyama (3797-1313)

Monsoon Café The Nishi Azabu people-watching cafe/restaurant (5467-5222) has opened a new restaurant in Daikanyama. Various Asian foods from satay to Vietnamese raw spring rolls. 11:30-5am, daily. 15-4 Hachiyamacho, Shibuya-ku (5489-3789)

Moti A Tokyo institution. Serving unpretentious Indian fare for as long as we can remember. Roppongi (3479-1939), Akasaka-mitsuke (3582-3620), Akasaka branch (3584-6640) Moti Darbar Roppongi (5410-6871)

Muse The longest bar in Tokyo with live music, DJs, and packed weekends. (3401-6969)

Myun (My Dung)It's a time machine: a slightly dank, Asian-baroque Shinjuku basement-cafe, perfectly preserved from the '60s. No, it's a space transporter: an instant trip to Saigon, with good, cheap food and a largely Vietnamese clientele. 1-3-8 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku (5379-5240)

Tokyo Clubs & Bars - S

Post  Nathan on Mon Mar 24, 2008 1:25 am

Saci Perere Apart from live samba-dancing is practically mandatory here-the big draw is Tokyo's best feijoada completa, the Brazilian national meal of black beans, pork and all the trimmings. Prices definitely add up, but there's seldom cause to regret it. 6pm-midnight; closed Sun. Kokyu Yotsuya Bldg., B1, 6-12 Hon-Shiocho, Shinjuku-ku (3226-5888)

Sad Cafe with DJs on Fri. & Sat. Inexpensive, if unremarkable, food plus drinks the rest of the time. 11 am-5 am. Kind of behind Condomania. Asaina Bldg., 2F, 6-28-3 Jingu-mae (3406-6692)

Saigon One of the best to date. Try the gyuniku no tsuboyaki: a pot of spiced beef, to be rolled up with lettuce and an addictive sauce in a rice pancake. 1-7-10 Higashi Ikebukuro, Toshima-ku (3989-0255)

Saigon Dep Lam A whole building of Vietnamese cuisine. Slowly percolated Saigon-style coffee on the ground floor, exotic drinks like rice hooch and finger foods in the basement, and hearty spring rolls and noodle dishes on the third. We've no idea what goes on on the mysterious "second floor parallel." Roulette maybe? 11:30am-3pm & 6-11pm. ´ 4-28-16 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku (3478-2540)

Salsa Caribe Latin bar/club playing from salsa & merengue to cumbia. Call for info on salsa lessons and special events. Reine Roppongi Bldg., 2F, 5-3-4 Roppongi (3746-0244)

Salsa Sudada Libidinous Latin rhythms and a friendly, multinational crowd. 6 pm-6 am. La Pallette Bldg., 3F, 7-13-8 Roppongi (5474-8806)

Salty Box Grill Intimate, casual Canadian-style restaurant with great service and hospitality. Delicious pastas and Caesar salad a must. They also make a tasty steak sandwich. Microbeers and reasonably priced wines. Homemade desserts & lovely lattes. Real Canadian breakfast served Sat. & Sun. 11:30am-3pm (lunch) & 5pm-midnight (dinner), Sun., 10:30am-3:30pm (brunch) & 5-10pm (dinner) 1-11-6 Nishi Azabu, Minato-ku (tel/fax: 3403-6631)

Samovar Tokyo's oldest Russian restaurant, and it looks it. Samovar specializes in stews with dumplings, thick soups served with crusty Russian rye bread, goulashes and a skewer of lamb or beef, all to be washed down with cold, viscous Polish vodka poured to the rim, and good Czech pilsner. Closed Sun. & 3rd Mon. Shibuya Sta. Just past Bunkamura, turn left up the hill, 2-22-5 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku (3462-0648)

San Isidro Great sampling of Spanish delicacies in the form of specials that change daily. Tortilla Espana is a sweet, savory omelet made with organic onions and free range huevos. Friendly, fun and easy to find. Fresh fish culled from the Guadalquivir River in eco-disaster Sevilla. 5:30-11:30pm. Closed Sundays & Holidays ¥¥ Purumie Gaien Bldg., 2F, 2-7-30 Kita Aoyama, Minato-ku (3401-3146)

Saude Youngish crowd jams to Eurobeat, samba, salsa and heavy metal. Tasty Brazilian food. ABIC Bldg., 7F, 3-10-9 Roppongi
(3478-6618)

Savoy "Pizza, pasta, vino and swing." With a soundtrack of 40s and 50s jazz, two different kinds of pizza (a tomato mozzarella and a herb-packed marinara) and plenty of hearty dishes and reasonable bottles, Savoy delivers what it promises. But don't go at the last minute--they run out of pizza dough a half hour or so before closing. 6-10pm. 2-7-10 Kami-Meguro, Meguro-ku (3714-5160)

Shamaim Best Israeli food East of Lake Kinneret-or at least East of that pond in Kichijochi. Reasonable tasty sets of falafel or grilled meat-2,000 yen buys all you can eat even for dinner. The owner's making it his mission in life to keep the blue and white flag waving over Tokyo now that Agada's moving into salsa. Closed Mon. Art Bldg., 2F, 4-11 Sakaecho, Nerima-ku (3948-5333)

Shanghai Club Descend the winding staircase and step through the dingy door frame into a Victorian garage sale. Fashionable free-style fresh foods and spirits for people used to dining interestingly. Shiguma AG Bldg., B1, 2-3-2 Shibuya, Shibuya-ku (3486-1976)

Shanri Gardens Choose from Toshomen, a block of dough sliced at your table into noodles, shark's fin soup, or steamed fish in oyster sauce. A classy 80 person capacity black leather interior and cheap lunch specials make it all worthwhile. Lunch from 11:30, Dinner starts from 5pm. Emerald Nishi Azabu Garden 1F, Nishi Azabu 1-8-21, Minato-ku (3402-1011)

Shinkukan Cozy club with reggae, dub and house. 2,500 yen w/ 1 dish & 2 drinks. Tucked away on the back streets between Harajuku and Aoyama. Harajuku FS Bldg., B1, 4-4-14 Jingu-mae (3478-4946)

One minute walk from Hiroo station. Admission: ¥3,000, includes two drinks and free Karaoke. M2 Bldg. Hiroo, 5-2-26 Hiroo, Shibuya-ku. Open every day 7pm-3am (3444-0432)

Shiori Dining and Shot Bar A French menu and a well-stocked bar beckon the intrepid Tokyoite to step in and relax. 3-25-2 Nishi-Ikebukuro. Toshima-ku (3984-0065)

Silk Bring-your-own-music and try your luck at DJ space in Shibuya. 5 pm-midnight. Fri. & Sat.: Eurobeat. 1-17-7 Jinnan (5458-1507)Soul Sonic Boogie

Spago One of the originators of Californian cuisine. Savor some gourmet pizza and imagine you're back in the early '80s. 11:30-2pm & 6-10pm, Sun. no lunch menu. 5-7-8 Roppongi, Minato-ku (3423-4025)

Sunny For 15 years, Sunny has been offering women a groovy place to get wild, chill out or have a gab, depending on your mood. Mere steps away from Hanako and Hug, Sunny's friendly staff is willing to wing it for English-speaking customers. A gargantuan karaoke machine looms in the corner. Customers tend to be in their 20s or 30s, and things don't really get interesting until around 10.30. Sunny seats 10 and there is some space to stand. Sunny's cover charge is 1,500 yen, and drinks start at 800 yen. Although Sunny has no official closing day, staff recommend that you phone ahead just in case. Shinjuku 2-15-8, 8 pm-5 am, no closing day (3356-0368)
