We lost track of so much time here. It was great. Most of the bars charge a cover fee to enter but some are free to foreigners. The bars are small but a great mixture of travelers and people from Japan. We went to ACE's. The owner had a sign saying no cover and that he spoke English. It was great! He recommended Japanese drinks and was friendly. I met a girl named Hito and we talked even though we didn't understand each other. This is a great place to drink and meet new people. Definitely worth looking around.

tiny, scruffy, intense, awkward and magical ... can't forget for many years and can not wait to go back again.

Great for traditional food, heaps of options for eating and drinking ... very close to the main station in Shinjuku and close to the night life area

I loved people watching and trying different restaurants. The crowd was stressful sometimes, though.

Discover some crazy tiny bars that feel full with half a dozen customers in them. There's a real choice of bars depending on your music favourites and your trends - there's a bar for all. Most have a cover charge but this is a must do as you can meet some amazing locals in the bars!
