Rehab Lounge gay bar in Shinjuku


Rehab Lounge is a fairly new bar in Tokyo's most well-known gay area, Shinjuku Ni-Chome, that appeals as much to the foreign as to the Japanese crowd. With generous drinks, generous drink prices, live DJs, and clean, simple decor, it didn't take long for this bar to get off the ground.

There is beer on tap, cocktails galore, and all at reasonable prices. One of the best things about Rehab Lounge is the Happy Hour: all you can drink for 1,000 yen between 7pm and 9pm on weekdays!

The music played there - especially on weekends, when DJs feature, is refreshingly off the wall and cutting edge: lots of electro sounds and pleasant, intensely danceable, surprises that you never get at the run-of-the-mill gay discos of Tokyo.

Bar master Fumi, and barman Richard from the US, set the scene for a friendly, easy-going, subtely lit space where you can actually converse, or dance, or do both at the same time - another relative rarity in Shinjuku Ni-chome.

The furnishings are chic and comfortable and provide plenty of room to sit down and take it easy if you want, either at the bar, or on couches.

This weekend, on Sunday, August 30, Rehab Lounge is having a special party for the Ni-Chome Rainbow Festival. Starts at 6pm - be there or be sober!
