Rock'n Kitchen Janis




The owner at this small Kabukicho bar is a former singer and a huge fan of Janis Joplin – it shows in the music selection, which, however, isn't exclusively Janis – a fun variety of pop and hard rock is played, while patrons can even pick up a guitar from the corner and start an impromptu live party. The homemade omu-rice goes nicely with a ¥500 glass of Southern Comfort – another Janis favourite.
