Tokyo boasts some of the world’s best nightlife – top of the line sound systems pump out the beat at amazing clubs, fabulous fashions are on display and a friendly atmosphere pervades. However, before heading out, a little research will help to get you pointed in the right direction.

One of the first things travelers will notice is that almost every bar or club charges a cover for admission, anywhere from $5 - $50. While this usually includes a ticket for 1 or 2 free drinks, don't be surprised if you get nothing in return aside from live music, a bowl of nuts, or even just a wristband. Try to find the details ahead of time. Mega-clubs like  Womb  or  AgeHa  are easily accessable to non-Japanese crowds, although the action usually doesn't start until late. For a more comprehensive nightlife experience, try to find a local organized party such as the  Tokyo Pub Crawl  to kick things off. Flyers advertising such events, are easily picked up in music stores around Shibuya or in any of the bars in Shinjuku-ni-chome for gays and lesbians.

Another shock may be when many clubs state that they close at midnight – while bars are often open till 5am. A law exists that prevents dancing in residential neighborhoods, but is largely ignored. 

Roppongi is where the foreigners (expats, military, tourists) and eager Japanese socialites flock on weekends for crazy and wild action. It is one of the most upscale districts of Tokyo. It's packed with dance clubs, upscale bars, strip joints and dive bars. This is the place where both Japanese and non-Japanese, desperate to let loose ,  come to mingle and perhaps find a date. Be slightly wary of shady strip club touts, Chinese prostitutes, and drunk people after midnight. This area can get really crazy so excercise caution.

Some  after-hours clubs  such as   Odeon Bar/Club  opens at 8pm but be prepared to be here all night and the next day as the famous Odeon is open until 12.00 noon every weekend , with many models and hostesses frequenting the club until the early hours of the next day.  

Fans of ‘Lost in Translation’ will want to head to the karaoke "boxes" (private rooms) of Roppongi, such as Shidax Roppongi Club. Only those blessed with golden voices should reach for the microphone in an open bar, as karaoke is taken startlingly seriously. On the other hand at about $10 per person ($30 for all you can drink) you can grab a karaoke box furnished with dancing poles, tambourine, microphones, drinks, and an impressive database of English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese hits.

Shibuya attracts mainly Japanese teens and 20-somethings. There very many different establishments ranging from megaclubs to small Japanese bars.

Kabuki-Cho in Shinjuku is the Japanese red-light district. You'll find regular clubs and bars here, as well as plenty of strip clubs. The Yakuza has a heavy presence in the area. Be warned that most establishments cater to well-off Japanese men only and sometimes refuse entry to foreigners.

Gay nightlife is crammed into the narrow streets of Shinjuku-ni-chome – 200 bars, the size of a spare bedroom, cater to an active community. Bars are stacked on top of each other like Lego blocks.
