If you like to get up close and personal with the bands you go and see, then visit this easy-to-miss venue. That doesn’t mean it is groupie heaven here; rather, it’s so small that the audience might as well be on stage with the musicians. Gigs are on Fridays and Saturdays (sometimes Thursdays and Sundays too), and it’s a good place to hear up-and-coming local talent.

You could also just come here for a low-key, late-afternoon, street-side drink. If there's a cover charge, it's usually around ¥30, but often includes a drink.
