    clubtrooper, during the week ? That’s hard.. there are events happening here and there, but nothing that I know on a regular basis.
    You may just want to walk around the Shibuya area near Club Asia, but the problem is that you can’t just peek in, and you may end up paying to end up in a deserted club..

    hey davide! first, thanks for the nice homepage. it definitely helps you to get a first picture of tokyo’s night life. maybe you can help me out a bit more. i’m into techno music. no electro, house – so NO guetta, swedish house mafia, kalkbrenner and the like… usually: the harder the better, but minimal can be nice too, if the atmosphere is nice. anyway, i reckon clubs which play that kind of music look similar around the world: dark, shady, dodgy, tolerant, druggy, late hrs etc. etc. do you know of any place like that? cheers!

    I have a pretty good experience of clubbing in Tokyo, I just would like to add that some clubs like Alife, and especially the Alife, are definitely not very gaijin friendly. I remember once while approaching a girl she move quickly and gave me an elbow hit, I’m pretty mannered and good looking so it pissed me off. Worst is she wasn’t pretty, I just wanted to speak cause I was alone. If we wasn’t in Japan I would have slap that bitch. Some similar experiences of very cold shower happened mostly in Alife and Edo Club. Club Edo is full of little teenagers, with some really brainless and arrogant, I would not recommand that one too. The best club in Roppongi is definitely the Feria IME. I really enjoyed each of my night there ! I enjoyed some nights in Black 911 too but it seems the place changed a bit since it become the Black Horse, last time I went there I’ve met a lot of trash especially after 3pm. Cheers.

    Hey Davide.

    I just want to thank you a bunch for this guide. Going to live in Japan for a year and it’s been difficult to find a proper guide, but you seem experienced and trustworthy regarding clubbing in Japan.

    Cheers mate!

    Hi Davide,
    Sounds like Alife was the place! What’s replaced it, in terms of catering to the Japanese disco working professional crowd?

    wow.. sorry I haven’t been checking for comments in a while and many of them were being kept under moderation automatically.
    Here are some answers:

    Haven tried Cube 326, but it seems interesting 8)

    yeah, most girls that go to clubs like Alife aren’t necessarily looking for foreigners. Also the whole environment changes… it’s not like other clubs where the more traditional western approach works 8)

    I’m sure that Asian guys are appreciated in Japan. Japanese are Asian too, after all 8)
    I can’t think of a specific place for a single guy. Luckily in Japan there isn’t this thing about dancing in couples (like in USA for example), so it’s not so bad to go solo, though it’s not as fun of course.

    The only non-smoking that I know are Ageha and Mado Lounge. Which actually have separate smoking areas).

    Sorry, too late to reply. I wouldn’t have know anyway. I haven’t been to salsa club in a few years now (^^;)

    Unfortunately I haven’t been able to update the site in a while, and I don’t hang out as much. But I’m trying, from time to time.

    I’m puzzled myself, what has replaced Alife ? There must be something out there.. or maybe it’s an ear that has gone.
    There are still clubs in Roppongi like Flower.. well that club has changed name after something bad has happened in it (^^;)
