Finding the entrance to Rags Room Acid (formerly Club Acid) is a challenge in itself - a small sign on Shinjuku Dori provides the only hint of its existence. The best method is to pay attention to the stairways of neighbouring buildings and follow your ears: you can hear anything booming out of here, from ska to rock, hip hop to Latin, R&B to techno to drum ’n’ bass.
