Loft has been around for more than 25 years and is a dedicated promoter. Inside are two areas: one is the main space for gigs, the other is a bar with a small stage. Expect loud music of any genre here. At times Loft offers more than just gigs, with all-night events that include DJs. Nearby sister venue Loft Plus One (1-14-7 Kabukicho, 3205 6864) is an unusual place that specialises in live talk events. The entertainment ranges from political discussion to porn stars performing erotic games. Needless to say, the language barrier only affects some events.
