The film Lost in Translation is a great introduction to Tokyo, and if you want to go to the Karaoke bar where Bill Murray sings his heart out, head to Karaoke Kan located at Udagawa-cho, Shibuya-ku. Order drinks through the intercom and sing away to your heart's content. It is open daily from 11am through to 6am, so there's plenty of partying and singing to be done!
The 8 Bit Café in Shinjuku is a perfect spot for retro gamers and people who like a drink or two. The bar is full of 80’s game memorabilia; they have game themed cocktails and vintage consoles scattered around to allow you to do some reminiscing. This understated bar is located at Q Building 5F, 389 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku.
One of the best bars in Tokyo is the Mario themed bar. Muteki Mario is located in east Shinjuku, just a short distance from Tokyo's commercial hub. It is a small place with only 12 or so seats, but it's worth fighting for a place. This is almost a shine to Mario - everything you see will have some reference to the Mario series. You can also play some old school Pacman while the locals cheer you on. It's a wonderful place!
