The night district of Tokyo in Shinjuku

Six narrow and crowded alleys, sometimes linked by even narrower passages, some two hundred tiny and outdated stalls, a bit decrepit: welcome to Golden Gai. Discover this small district of Shinjuku where bars and small izakaya mingle, to explore after dark ...

Deathmatch in Hell

 

Like other bars in the neighborhood, the "Deathmatch in Hell" has a very strong theme: here, it's metal music and horror cinema , and it shows in the decor. Of course, you have to appreciate the boss's musical choices! All drinks are 666 yen (no coincidence!), And the bartender speaks English . In addition, no cover charge is required.

Address: Golden Gai 3-Ban Gai, 1-1-8 Kabukicho, Shinjuku, Tokyo

Albatross

 

The Albatross has the undeniable advantage of being larger, because it is installed on two levels. The premises are decorated in a style that oscillates between Baroque and Victorian : chandeliers, gilded frames, purple velvet, slick bartenders in three-piece suits, jazzy background music , as well as a balcony allowing customers upstairs to contemplate the view. Menu in English and cover charge of 500 yen (4 €).

Address: Golden Gai 5-Ban-Gai, 1-1-7 Kabukicho, Shinjuku, Tokyo

Ace's

 

A small classic bar but very welcoming , arguably the easiest solution if you feel intimidated by the other storefronts of Golden Gai. The owner, who studied in the United States, speaks good English and is delighted to welcome tourists and discuss, over a drink (no cover charge ), between the four walls covered with posters. Relaxed atmosphere guaranteed.
