While your Japanese mates have plans to be holed at home eating mochi, soba, and drinking beer with the fam, you are wondering what is on offer for the expat crowd. There are plenty of parties out there and here are some we think would be pretty groovy for some champagne and shaking your tush.
+ G9 NYE Countdown Party at Shibuya’s Gonpachi/Legato. Dance the night away to house and techno beats right in front of the awesome night views of Tokyo from the 15th floor of Space Tower. Click here for details.
+ 2009 Liquid New Year’s Party at Liquidroom in Ebisu promises Japanese techno and sensational psychedelic videos.
+ If you want something heavier music-wise, you should make a beeline for Club Asia in Shibuya, where the music will range from cyberpunk to deep house to hip hop.
+ Fans of Womb will not be let down by its New Year Countdown. Though Sven Vath has always made the headline act at the club, this year his protégé Andre Galluzzi will take over as spin-meister. Expect tech/house tunes all night.
+ For a chi-chi night out, Velours has its Gold Rush Party for those looking for a bit more velvet and champagne.
