First Trip to RoppongiPublished on January 30th, 2010.
After hanging out on Takeshita Street for a few hours we went back home to leave our stuff and get ourselves ready for Roppongi. Even though many of you told me not to visit Roppongi, I had to see for myself.
Because of Marcus, we already knew where to go, so we could walk through the hordes of black men trying to get you in their clubs. Some of them are really persistent though^^
Our goal was GASPANIC, a chill place with a good mix of Japanese and foreigners.
Magnus on our way there, he got one really persistent guy chasing after him, sometimes they just don’t give up.
There are a few ways to get rid of them though, it’s not like they try to drag you in or anything, they just try to convince you to come by saying things like “it’s free”. I think it’s kind of fun to act along, ask them about the club and tell them I’ll come by later, that way they leave you within 20 seconds. Of course you can always ignore them, but that whey they just become an annoyance.
We went the wrong way at first but we found this pretty place because of that^^
Last picture before we found our way to GASPANIC.
We were there early so it took an hour or so before people started dropping in. On Thursdays it’s happy hour all day, so all drinks for 300 yen, no entrance fee or anything, you can come and go as you like. The only thing is, when it’s getting late, they check if you’re drinking, you kind of always have to hold a drink in your hand if you’re not sitting at a table.
Lisa and Magnus. If you want champagne, it’s 3000 yen a bottle on Thursdays ;)
Lastly a pic of myself, don’t question the pose I’m doing!^^;
GASPANIC on Thursdays is highly recommended! Below is a map to all the four GASPANICs in Tokyo.
