Japan Nightlife: 65 reviews and 60 photos
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!
Dress Code: Neat. Smart.
Address: 1-24-10 Nakayamate Dori, Kobe
Directions: 5 min walk from Sannomiya station.
Theme: Live Music
WOMB - TOKYO
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.
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!
Dress Code: Smart.
Directions: Ponto-cho runs parallell with Kamogawa river.
Theme: Eating and Drinking
HEARTLAND - http://metropolis.co.jp/tokyo/479/bars
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 =).
See good review:
Dress Code: Trendy. Smart. Tidy.
Address: 1F Roppongi Hills West Walk, 6-10-1 Roppongi, Mina
