Roppongi Nightlife and Clubs

Got some friends visiting Japan this winter. They want to do the 'Roppongi night out'. I haven't been for ages now, so I'm looking for suggestions on good spots to go to; clubs, bars, anything. Oh, and where to avoid! It'll be 3 dudes, all over 30, and, yeah, Roppongi.

    I think you should go to Shibuya Ageha, just join the event and enjoy. If you go to Roppongi, the chance of meeting Nigerian friends and reject by the establishment is very high. If you are looking for something special, take a look at Kingyo in Roppongi. http://www.japantimes.co.jp/life/2005/02/13/to-be-sorted/go-go-kingyo/

    Sorry that I can't help you, but I'm curious to see what others are going to say. I've yet to have a night out in Tokyo.

    Ask the Nigerian dudes or maybe Romanians, they always know where the best places to party are. No no, I'm joking.... Or am I?

    Samantha - I want to go somewhere where there are other people, not just a 'plant' who's going to charge me 50,000 yen for a coupe of drinks and the privilege of seat at the bar. trekkingbecky - A night out in Tokyo is a must! Not necessarily Roppongi though!

    Roppongi... shudders!! It's been a long time, but I do hope to revisit someday and laugh at my 20 old something self for spending so much time there. Have they visited yet? Where'd you go? If they haven't arrived yet, how about the Pink Cow!! http://www.thepinkcow.com/ It doesn't involve being escorted to the bar to ensure you actually buy a drink... or maybe they want that quintessential experience? :-p

    Thanks Saitama. Not happened yet. I'm not sure what kind of experience they want at this stage. I'm not sure even they know. Maybe it'll become clear on the night. The Pink Cow. Looks interesting. Cheers. I'll do some more research though, as it might be a bit classy for what they're after!!

    True that, it'd be a shame to go all the way to Roppongi and not go a bit wild. You can do conservative anywhere, anytime. Truth; while I don't miss many aspects of Roppongi, it is a great place to hang out with friends. Have a great time wherever you go.

    ELE Tokyo in Roppongi is a good spot. Just remember that almost all bars and clubs charge as much as double for men then women.

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
