5. Trump Room
Stumping our Top Ten Tokyo bars list is the Trump Room, a strange, exhilarating, unexplainable place. Get ready to enter what is known as Tokyo’s “hipster playpen” (we aren’t even sure what that means, but it sounds trendy so you should probably be there). The place oozes glitter balls, stuffed animal heads, and mirrors in every direction—probably so the patrons can check out their outfits (which happen to consist of things like bunny ears, wigs, and military memorabilia). Need we say more? Open 10 PM until “late.”
Located between Shinjuku and Shibuya stations, Ikebukuro is eclectic, young, vibrant, and nouveau. It is highly populated by millennials and speaks to that generation, although the energy, shopping and dining speak to all ages (if you can keep up with the pace, you trendy grandma, you). Known for its stores filled with varieties of manga and anime, this Top 10 Tokyo party district comes alive at night and allows for fun adventures at every corner. Very Soho!
3. Robot Restaurant
An elaborate 100 million dollar design houses the Top 10 Tokyo Robot Restaurant. Now, it’s not exactly what it sounds like…it probably isn’t a place for young travelers. This modern entertainment features a 90-minute show of robots grooving with highly provocative female dancers clad in neon lights and basically non-stop thrill and authentic entertainment. Honestly, we think you need to see it to believe it. Open Mon – Fri 5 PM – 11 PM and Sat – Sun 3:30 – 11 PM.
2. The Blue Note Tokyo
There is no shortage of sassy jazz in Tokyo but the sassiest artists come to The Blue Note. Enjoy some of the world’s top performers featuring a mix of R&B and soul, all alongside irresistible drinks and dishes. Dinner stops 20 minutes after the performance begins (so the artists aren’t distracted by your loud chip chomping). There are reserved and free seats available for each show. Remember, there’s never a bad time for jazz hands at this Top 10 Tokyo nightclub. Open Mon – Sat 5:30 PM – 1:30 AM, Sun 5:30 PM – 12 AM.
