Nightclubs in Tokyo

Tokyo’s clubs are many and varied, and the club scene is very fluid. There are several centers for nightclubs; Roppongi, the city’s upscale playground, is one of the most lively. The Roi Building across the road from Don Quijote is full of clubs and bars. The Ni-chome area of Shinjuku is home to some 250 gay clubs, as well as numerous pubs and bars. Many famous DJs operate at AgeHa, Tokyo’s largest nightclub, in Shin-kiba. Atom, in Shibuya, attracts a mainly young clientele and has two dance floors as well as a floor just for relaxation.

Other clubs currently drawing crowds for every type of dance music from salsa to techno and house disco are Womb, Ele Tokyo, and Club Asia.

Clubs with a show tend to get going early in the evening, around 7-8pm; the last show ends in time to catch the last trams out to the suburbs, about 11-11:30pm. Smaller clubs start and end later, while dance clubs won’t warm up until around 11 pm and often keep going all night. Expect a cover charge at most clubs of¥2,000-4,000, usually including one drink.
