WOMB is the one for all you EDM lovers.
Shibuya is one of the largest fashion and music districts and an overall worldwide focal point for Japanese youth culture. Located in this area, this 1000 person four-floor club has positioned itself as the leader in electronic dance music parties.
The line up is mostly international. You have your EDM, your techno and your drum and bass all nights of the week. Top that off with different music on every floor, dazzling food, affordable VIPs and a giant disco ball – you’ve got yourself a hell of a night.
WOMB started in the year 2000. It has hosted parties for world-renown DJs, as well as launching local stars to overseas fame. Let’s face it – any club who has been ranked among the Top 5 in the world is sure to offer you an amazing time.
The WOMB is known for being a hotspot for all famous artists and representatives of the entire Tokyo club culture.
AgeHa (you might see it somewhere as Studio Cast) is said to have reinvented the entire Tokyo nightlife. It’s called an “event space”. As stiff as that may sound, believe me, their top goal is to make your night unforgettable.
It’s honestly the biggest (and one of the most popular) clubs in all of Japan. These four gigantic stages (and few smaller ones) have hosted people like Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Fatboy Slim and a TON more world-famous artists.
It’s called an event space because it’s not really a club. It’s dozens of clubs, bars, pools, restaurants – everything in one place. And with a sound system clubs all around the world envy – it’s an audiophile’s dream!
This is where you go for the ultimate Tokyo nightlife experience. With all these famous names on their list, there’s bound to be something for everyone’s taste and style; not to mention it’s a huge venue, so there’s different music wherever you go.
You can easily get lost in there – it’s surreal in size. No worries though, every door you open will make you feel more and more alive!
Here’s one for the younger ones (not that 25-ish old!)
ATOM is a club in the Shibuya district, mostly known among the younger crowd (around 20). It’s a 3-floor club playing mostly EDM, RnB and J-pop – what you listen to depends on what floor you’re on.
Excellent production, excellent sound systems, and excellent DJs – every night of the week. A great place to hang out and see how the young people of Japan spend their nights — and those guys know how to spend their nights, alright!
The crowd is all friendly Japanese, but the bouncers in there tend to be… pretty strict, so beware.
Overall, it’s one of the best budget dance clubs in Tokyo, especially for the ladies. If you go in before midnight, you’ll enter this 3-story fun-packed venue for only ¥1000 – that includes a few drinks!
5. Club Asia
Ending the night at the Shibuya district?
Club Asia is your best bet if you still haven’t finished partying for the night. It’s located in the center of the district and other than a packed dance club in Tokyo, it features a first-floor lounge that’s great for meeting people and conversing.
Club Asia is a great place if you want to party like the locals do and dance to the rhythm of rave and J-pop. It doesn’t have the foreigner/international vibe of The Roppongi district, but it’s still amazing if it’s your first night in Tokyo and you want to do a little dance and have a few drinks.
Which night you choose to visit Club Asia is important. Some nights, there can be two dozens of people in there. On others, you will literally not be able to get to the toilets! To get the experience you’re looking for, check who is playing before actually going.
Nevertheless, it’s a great atmosphere. Party people, not too smokey, not too expensive. Always a great time!
