Friday night life


#1

Where to spend Friday night in Tokyo, looking to listen to live music and do some clubbing. What area is better? Roppongi, Shimokitazawa, or Koenji?


#2

Go to Roppongi for bro-y, club nights (https://tokyocheapo.com/entertainment/cheap-clubs-tokyo/)
Shimokitazawa for more of a hipster bar type of night
And Koenji, I’m not too familiar with, however, one stop away near Asagaya Station is Gamuso bar - they have live music, art and comedy nights. Most events are free, you just pay for drinks

Here’s two websites with listings of live music in English:


For clubbing, there’s http://iflyer.tv/en-jp/

Roppongi has a lot of bars and clubs, but if you want a better taste of culture (and less expats), other areas will probably suit better. There’s some good places in and around Shibuya, e.g. Daikanyama, Nakamegurfo, Aoyama.

For a drink-heavy night out but a great way to meet people if you’re travelling alone, the Tokyo bar crawl is on every friday and saturday night in Roppongi. It’s always really busy - and everyone has a great time. Only if you want a serious night out though i think!
