Le Baron Tokyo Club

Once known for Western-style mega-clubs, Tokyo’s nightlife scene has matured into a warren of alluring dens and underground hotspots.

To Drink

Le Baron

An outpost of the Parisian hotspot, Le Baron is the latest addition to the list of hidden clubs. Located behind an unmarked door in an alleyway off Omotesando, the tiny club is every bit as glamorous as its Paris flagship.

Albatross

Hidden bars are not a new trend in Tokyo; they have been a staple of local culture for decades. hinjuku’s infamous and endangered Golden Gai district is home to 200 nomiya (elaborately themed counter bars with fewer than a dozen seats) where local intellectuals gather to drink and philosophiae.

La Jetée

La Jetée is owned by a Francophile film buff whose Nouvelle Vague obsession is evident from the bar’s decor and soundtrack. Like Albatross, it is a hidden bar in the Golden Gai district. The two bars are the most foreigner-friendly nomiya in the city.

Bar Rage

Aoyama’s Bar Rage is located in a dimly lit and unmarked third-floor space; the elevator opens to reveal a mixology wonderland where bartenders concoct intricate fresh fruit-based cocktails unique to each guest.
