SHINJUKU GOLDEN STREET: Jazz Bar Baltimore


There are so many places in Tokyo that go unexplored and I've found that meeting new people... new girlfriends... they each share a little something new about Tokyo. 

Good friend Terry from grad school mentioned "Golden-Gai" (Gai means Street) in Shinjuku... Was confused with Shinjuku Omoide Yokocho that's a great spot full of tiny restaurants.  We checked out one of his reguar spots Jazz Bar Baltimore.

Golden-Gai is a sea of tiny bars all with about 6-8 seats per shop... 

"L" shaped bar with seating for 7.

Entrance fee was 800yen... beers start at 700 and other bar drinks at 600.

Started talking with a few Kirin Beer sales guys from Osaka, Fukuoka and  Nagoya.  If you want to mix with the locals definitely hit up Omoide-Yokocho for dinner then Golden-Gai for drinks.
