UFO Club

Live Music in West Tokyo

Named for the infamous 1960s London spot, Kōenji's UFO Club is committed to keeping the spirit of the era alive: the small basement space, with red-and-black swirling walls, feels like the inside of a lava lamp. Music-wise, expect psychedelic and acid rock from mostly local bands, but really anything goes so long as it's a bit weird.

It's on Ōme-kaidō, right before the big intersection with Kannana-dōri, with an English sign out front. Most gigs cost ¥2000 to ¥2500 with a one drink (¥500) minimum order.
