Popular, late-night gay dance club in Shinjuku. The Annex has a long bar and a dimly-lit cruising area in the back. DJ spins upbeat tunes that attract a good mix of crowd.

Run by the same owners of Arty Farty, so you pay once and have access to both clubs.

CLOSED (December 2017).

Every two months or so, ageHa hosts a hugely popular dance party ‘Shangri-La’ that attracts gay clubbers from Tokyo and across Asia. It is one of the largest and best parties in Tokyo, featuring multiple dance floors, great sound & light system, multiple bars and even a pool.

Shangri-La parties are renowned for having an excellent DJ lineup and gorgeous dancers whose outfits usually leave nothing to the imagination. If you happen to be in Tokyo on the same night as a Shangri-La party, then go.

Free shuttle service from the east exit of Shibuya Station is provided. The bus takes 30-45 minutes. Or you can catch a train to Shin-Kiba. Take the Keiyo Line or Yurakucho Line from Tokyo Station.
