Opened in 1975, Sometime is set in Tokyo’s Kichijoji neighborhood, an area known for its jazz clubs and cafés, making Sometime a perfect place to begin or end an evening of hopping between various live jazz venues. The official name of the bar is Piano Hall Sometime, but this refers more to the style of the bar, rather than the type of music typically featured. Particularly popular with students and other young crowds, this eclectic basement club is decorated with antiques and quirky accessories. There’s no stage, so musicians just play in the center of the room and customers can watch from the bar or get an overhead view in the loft seating area. The performers are mainly emerging Japanese jazz artists, with genres ranging from traditional to avant-garde. Most evenings feature three sets in total, with performances beginning at 7 p.m., as well as a lunchtime session on Sunday afternoons.

Excellent Place for Jazz Music Lovers!!!

4/ 5

The tables were placed around the stage that will make you feel like it is an old Jazz club. Musicians were very kind and pleasant. Though there is a cover charge the drinks and food was pretty good and reasonable. The club is very small and the last seat is 25 feet away from the performers and first seats are only 6 feet away! If you are a jazz lover, I recommend this place.
