Fantastic find in Golden Gai. Saw the Sex Pistols poster through a tiny laneway.
Heard Siouxsie and the Banshees playing and just had to stay.. Spent all night here drinking and chatting..
Went back a week later to enjoy it all again.
Opens up after 8pm and plays all your punk favourites plus more.

Tiny but nice rock bar, the music is real Good, they even show you a récord list in case you want to choose some songs. You must come if you like rock music!

Located in the awesome Golden Gai area of Shinjuku, this bar instantly rocketed towards the top of my list of favorite bars. Like other bars nearby this place is absolutely tiny - like, ten people max capacity, maybe.

They have a huge list of awesome punk songs in their computer and take requests, and they clearly care about and love punk from all over - the UK, Ireland, Japan, US, and others. Awesome memorabilia and posters all over, and a turtle named De Niro round out the place. It's legit as anything, and if you even remotely like punk you should check it out. Like most bars in Golden Gai there is a seating charge but its worth it for the atmosphere.

The bar we went too was called Hair of the Dog - if you look for the Ramones poster tacked on the door you'll find it. This bar is punk themed and they will let you pick your own music. The seating fee (most of the bar charge for this) is 800 yen or about AUD$8. My husband and I had MANY lemon beers (a yummy Japanese beer that literally has lemon in it) and met some nice people, a Japanese business man in his 40's, a group of Norwegian tourists and the fabulous bartender Yuka. Go to the golden gai (within Kubuchiko area) if you are young or young at heart - its a great night out and a very authentic Tokyo experience.
