Visit Roppongi and the maid cafés
Roppongi is a popular destination for foreign night owls who want to romp in bars, clubs, or live music. Most of the restaurants are now bilingual (English and Japanese) and guarantee a lot of fun with a karting session afterward.
Of thousands of restaurants, bars, karaoke is scattered through the busiest streets of the city. The city itself is a huge nightclub that you can easily get lost in. Once there, you will notice that the word party takes on a whole new meaning.
Are you fond of quite unusual places?
- Meet at one of the giant karaoke bars in the Roppongi district: the Fioria. All the rooms of this karaoke are decorated according to a specific theme.
- You can ask to sing the song in a luxurious room, in a room with a very futuristic atmosphere, and even in a bathroom. Singing in a jacuzzi with your friends is an experience that you can try at least once in a lifetime.
- The maid café is undoubtedly the most frequented place for foreign tourists visiting Tokyo for the simple reason that these places fuel the wildest fantasies. These bars and restaurants are animated by young waitresses dressed as maids or very sexy manga characters (the Akihabara district has the best maid cafes in Tokyo).
Kabuki-Cho: Tokyo’s hottest district
Kabuki-Cho is considered the hottest district in Tokyo. At nightfall, this immense city artery turns into a real paradise for night owls. You will find everything in Kabuki-Cho, from strip clubs, to Kabuki and Noh theaters and to Love hotels where you can spend pleasant moments with splendid geishas.

In this article, I will introduce you to the hottest bars, clubs, and discos!
Let’s take a closer look at the Roppongi entertainment district, including a map, night clubs, bars, and dance halls.
Night clubs in Roppongi
- Odeon is the most famous club in Roppongi and is for those who like to party all night. On weekends you can drink until the next lunchtime, so you save your accommodation right away. Odeon is located in the Roppongi party district center and has many events, friendly staff, and good party music. Plus, entry is only 1000 yen!
- At V2 Tokyo, you will meet international partygoers who want to party all night. The club is located on the 13th floor of the famous Roi building and offers you a good party with a great view over the district. Unfortunately, the club is quite expensive on the weekend at 3,500 yen for men. Women, on the other hand, come in for free.
- Wit Tokyo: If you want to dance to the music of famous DJs from the Japanese and international scene, Esprit Tokyo Club is the place for you. Every day (except Monday) is dedicated to a topic, so you have guaranteed variety!
- The Propaganda bar is one of the most popular places for international visitors and students as there is a wide range of drinks and cocktails. If you don’t know what to order, ask the friendly bartender. 😉
Bars and pubs
- The Geronimo Shot bar is famous for its “Shot hall of Fame” – try to create 15 different pins in one night and secure a place on the “Wall of Fame” (wall of celebrities). You will also receive a t-shirt. If you have a little more money left over, you can ring the gong and give everyone present a pin. 😉
