Visit a few iconic staples of Shibuya's nightlife scene. We'll start at "Vive La Vie" which is a hidden restaurant/bar, ran by a former photographer Michiko who turned chef started it 15 years ago. Then move on to the watering holes of drunks' alley ( called "Nonbei-Yokocho" ), an area with more than 30 bars to toast with local drunks. If we still are full on, we could hit a bar "Point 66", which is owned by Mr. Maezono a.k.a Mar-chan who has created a legendary "328" in Nishi-Azabu, very first club in Tokyo in 1979, or "Bubbles" which is a hideaway in Shibuya's secret district Maruyama-cho. See how it goes...
I'm a freelance journalist and have been in the business for 35 years, specializing people/culture/travel. Have traveled the world and worked in more than 30 different countries so far. Also seen Shibuya evolve since 1970s. Shibuya now is a popular destination for tourists but there's a different side of Shibuya. I'd like you to enjoy hanging out with the locals and feel it, and have fun!
one drink at VLV
A dinner at Vive La Vie and walk 10 minutes to Nonbei-Yokocho near Shibuya station. Then Point 66 in Namikibashi or Bubbles in Maruyama-cho, maybe. They all are located in walking distance.
