Nightclubs

Tokyo's clubs often seek to provide their customers with a full “night out” experience, which means a great meal followed by dancing.

A variety of types of food is available at these club/restaurant combinations, from French cuisine to Japanese fare.

  • La Fabrique (Zero Gate B1F, 16-9 Udagawa-cho, Shibuya-ku, Shibuya JR station) is worth a try, as is the smart Orbient (Crystal Bldg B1F/B2F, 3-5-12 Kita-Aoyama, Minato-ku, Omotesando station).
  • Air (Hikawa Bldg B2F, 2-11 Sarugaku-cho, Shibuya-ku, Daikanyama station) offers both European cuisine and an impressive sound system,
  • and the high-tech Alife (1-7-2 Nishi-Azabu, Minato-ku, Roppongi station), is a veritable haven for clubbers.
  • If you think size matters then why not give the Club Complex Code a try, it’s one of Tokyo's biggest (Shinjuku Toho Kaikan 4F, 1-19-2 Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku-ku, Shinjuku JR station, east exit).
