Windjammer (Yokohama)

A stone’s throw away from Chinatown, Windjammer is the pulse that keeps the Yokohama live jazz music scene alive and kicking. Opened by American Jimmy Stockwell in 1972, it’s now run by his son, Jeff. It continues in the same vein, offering nightly live performances by the house band and an abundance of great food and drinks.

With about 2,000 cocktails on the menu – over 200 of them Windjammer originals such as Jack Tar – you’ll be spoiled for choice. The interior reminisces of an old sailing ship – hence the bar’s name – as it’s decked out in wooden rails, old sails, and flickering lanterns.

Address: 215 Yamashitacho, Naka-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa-ken
