Popular open-air cafe
Start off the night in Ni-Chome. The welcoming crowd at this joint makes it a great place to bring your gay-friendly pals. Late night parties at this small, corner bar end up like block parties with patrons spilling into the streets, cocktails in hand.

Good place to take a photo. alot of regular customers and new visitors. Good place to meet guy and good friends:) They have all you can drink for beer every day, just 1000yen! More English speaker staffs now.

      Recommend for beer and party lovers
      Here is recommended on many websites that I had no hesitation to stop by on my first time in Shinjuku Nichome. It's open air bar and on weekends, you will see a lot of people standing and drinking in their open space till morning. You can enjoy beer as much as you want with 1000yen( to sure they do that whole night. might be only happy hour). Free wifi available. I asked many questions about Tokyo or Shinjuku Nichome on my first time there. They were really nice and answer me all my questions and even show me to the place I wanted to go. They sometimes have party night. It will be fun and many people will gather.

      Shinjuku Nichome
      It was my first time to be in Japan's biggest gay town. I was looking for some new friends to have a nice chat. AiiRO CAFE was really nice place to relax and meet new people. I think I will go back there again.

      always I'll be here to have good time
      My favorite place in Nichome is here. I do go many places when I'm in Nichome, but Aiiro Cafe(used to be Advocates cafe) is my starting place. I have a glass of beer(sometime it is hard to stop as a glass…)

      great happy hour
      ¥1000 for all you can drink from 6-9pm, can't beat it. But I was there in winter so it wasn't terribly busy.

      Good Bar that Spills Outside
      Crowd spills out onto the street which is fun. Strong ex-pat presence the couple of nights I went. Good place to start out the evening.

      Advos can be a home away from home for the dedicated. The staff, besides being cute, are friendly abd funny! Drink prices reasonable. And even on a cold winter night, brong a friend for a quiet chat.

      Small Tokyo bar
      Typical small Tokyo gay bar. It attracts a sizable group of expats, so if you're a foreigner and living, working or teaching English in the Tokyo area, this is a good bar to meet others doing the same thing. Drinks reasonably priced for Tokyo.

      Great place on sunny, warm days....
      Advo(cates) is a very tiny bar. The "inside" of the bar can only accomodate like ... 6 people. The bar puts up chairs and tables outside and on spring/summer nights a huge crowd stands in front of the bar chatting, giggling, laughing, crying... having a good night out. That's why I consider this bar to be more outdoors than indoors. On warm, sunny days this is the place to be. It gets quite packed on friday and saturday nights. The crowds come around 10:30 - 11pm and start their night out with a couple of drinks here. On some occasions the owner hires an outdoor DJ or has a bartender do some acrobatic stunts outside to entertain the ppl. The downside is that as soon as it rains or gets cold in winter this place dies out. On dry/sunny winter evenings people still stop by, as they provide outdoor gas radiators. but still, quite empty compared to the hot summer nights. I like this place, just too bad that it's notoriously empty on winter nights or rainy days.
