New openings


Shibuya has its fair share of live music clubs, but the latest addition to the lineup claims to be Japan’s biggest live music café yet. Combining music, food and art, Living Room Cafe by eplus (one of Japan’s most well-known ticket sellers) opened on July 15 featuring 1,200m² of floor space and 300 seats. It’s divided into five main areas, living, dining, patio, main bar and terrace room, which hints at the concept behind the name: you should feel as though you’ve been invited to an artist friend’s home to chill out and listen to music.

As CD sales decline and music downloads increase, musicians have begun to reignite the live music scene. This way, new artists get the chance to promote themselves and established musos can appeal to new audiences. Living Room Cafe hopes to keep the trend going, encouraging people to stop by for nightly live music concerts. On weekdays, the entrance fee is ¥300, with food and drinks sold separately in the other areas of the café. On weekends, ticket prices vary according to performances and bear in mind that you might need to buy tickets in advance.
