One day, my mother told me, “You like jazz! Let’s go to this restaurant together!”. 3 minutes after existing Kichijoji Station North Exit and entering Sun Road. When you turn left at Yofuku-no-Aoyama, you will see a prominent green signboard against a brown brick background....PIANO HALL “SOMETIME” COFFEE & LIQUOR. A long-established jazz club born in 1975. A shop where you can enjoy high equality jazz, cuisine and liquor at a reasonable price. I went down the dim and thin stairs. There is an atmosphere from the entrance and it is exciting. Open the door and the jazzy world will spread. Dim, brick brown, orange light, black piano, drum set, amp and microphone. We were guided to the seat and ordered a mushroom pizza (1,000 yen). The tuning sound of the band, the voices of the customers who can hear it a little, the smell of delicious food and the smell of cigarettes are pleasant. There are 2nd floor seats and semi-basement seats, so it will be fresh no matter how many times you come. The performance begins. Each day and night is a two-stage system. You can enjoy music with a charge of 1,000 yen at noon and 1,800 yen at night. The jazz that I listened to while eating delicious pizza was great, and I wanted to come here again and again. On the third Thursday of every month, “JAZZ FOR EVERYBODY” is held, where you can enjoy jazz for 500 yen. If you are a beginner, why not try this day?More

Enjoyed the jazz, a four piece band, and our food was very good quality. We had 3 beers and 2 x glasses white wine. Bill was almost 10000 yen. So the cover charge must have been around 5000 for two.

This is a little gem if you are into jazz music. I love the stage ie surround by tables when u really get that old “Smokey” jazz club feel. The night I was there, it was a jazz trio led by Manubu Ohishi. We only...ordered finger food and drinks which was good.More

We enjoy jazz clubs, and this little basement spot was an unexpected pleasure. Groups vary, but the night we were there a jazz trio plus singer performed standards. It's a small place, and the worst seat is not more than 25 feet from the performers....Some seats are only 6 feet away! Service was friendly, and the owner spoke a little English. There is a cover charge, but then food and drinks are reasonable and good. We lived in Tokyo for 8 years and never knew of this place. Now, as we make return visits, I wouldn't miss it. It's a five minute walk from the station down Sun Road, a covered, lively shopping street.More

My friend booked us tickets ahead of time which is the thing to do as the piano bar seats maybe twenty. We enjoyed some beautiful music with a friendly jazz trio playing a few sets for us. The musicians were so open and friendly we...went out all together after for dinner and a few drinks. What a great place and experience!More
