Ruby Room

By Weekender Editor

Nestled in a Shibuya alleyway, Ruby Room is a bite-sized venue that attracts a lot of foreigners and partygoers. It’s the jump off for experiencing local and pioneering artists. Belle & Sebastian, Basement Jaxx, and Hernan Cattaneo have performed there. The club’s legendary open mic has been running on Tuesday nights for 20 years. Aspiring artists gather to develop their craft and cross-pollinate. The open mic has helped turn Ruby into a mainstay and a cultivator of Tokyo’s music scene. Whether, it’s rock, techno, punk, rap, or folk, all genres are welcomed.

Address: 4F, 2-25-17 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku
