The Band - Japan

The Band


Im not that into jazz music but the evening at SONE Jazz Bar in KOBE was a sure hit!
- Classy interior!
- Great live music! Band was very friendly. And singer said a few words in english every now and then to make me feel part of the crowd! She stayed and chatted with us after the gig!
- Good cocktails (and an english drinklist!)
- Good nibbles.
- We didnt have dinner but they serve food aswell and it did look real yummy. A big table next to us had pizzas and I caught a glimpse of squid on them - interesting!

WOMB - TOKYO - Japan



The exterior of the club may be mis-leading to most people as it looks like a large conrete box. Womb is a 4 floor club with banging tunes, 2 chill-out lounges and several bars.

This is not however a place for anyone with epilepsy beacuse of the frequent use of stroboscope lightshows!

Dress Code: Cool and groovy!

Address: 2-16 Maruyama-cho, Shibuyaku

Directions: Womb is located about 15 miunutes from Shibuya station.

Theme: Nightclub

Sent James Club - KYOTO - Japan

Sent James Club - KYOTO


There are 2 Sent James Clubs in Kyoto. One in Honten and one in Ponto-cho.
I went to the Ponto-cho one with my friend (who is I might add crazy about jazz). But you dont have to be a jazz person to come here. Its a nice, mellow bar. Dark wooden interior. Flickering candlelights to set that jazzy mood..
AND!! They have a terrace overlooking Kamogawa river. Perfect for a hot summers eve!
The drinklist is impressive with many exciting cocktails. A bit pricy. But worth it!
Great place!!

Dress Code: Smart.

Address: Ponto-cho.

Directions: Ponto-cho runs parallell with Kamogawa river.

Theme: Eating and Drinking

Heartland: TOKYO CLUB

A classy hip bar in Roppongi Hills. Famous for attracting a lot of gaijins (foreigners). Hip and trendy interior. Good music from a DJ and a cool crowd. (And yep, it is CROWDED!) Lucky us had the private room booked to celebrate our friend's b-day =).
