Gay Tokyo: City of dichotomies

From ganguro girls with painted faces to stern businessmen clad in suits -- their days spent behind a desk and nights behind a bar, Sapporo in hand -- to young men celebrating with style a new spirit of gay liberation beginning to emerge in this conservative culture, this is a place of vast contradictions.

    Great small club in Nichome
    I have read the reviews on here that are mainly negative and completely disagree. Arty Fatty must be one of the best gay clubs in the world and, believe me, living in London, I have seen loads. The place is small. By western standarts, this should be called a bar with dancefloor, but for Japan its quite big. The crowd is 50-50 Asian and European. The music is mainly pop. If you expect electronic stuff, you should probably go somewhere else. There is always a queue to get in on weekends, so arrive early and don't forget the place shuts at 1 am, as it's a law in Japan. The below mentioned barmen aren't very friendly, but they do they job and drinks are fairly cheap. The crowd is young and handsome. Although Japanese are shy and unlikely to approach you first so be confident. If they are here, then its most likely they are after a white guy. Some are unbelievably beautiful. To sum up, I could probably compare Arty with Heaven nightclub in London. It's just much smaller, cozier version of it.
