Japan Day 16 (Part 2): Brooklyn Parlor & 8 Bit Cafe

Brooklyn Parlor is a sprawling bar/restaurant that’s so hip it hurts… but it’s surprisingly reasonably-priced, with good food too! We visited the Shinjuku branch in the afternoon and were seated after a short queue. We’d passed by a few days earlier in the evening, hoping to have dinner there, but the queue was much longer and we decided to go back at an off-peak timing (ie, avoiding lunch and dinner times).

We also visited 8 Bit Cafe, which is filled with retro game consoles and memorabilia. You can even play some of the games there! We played Super Mario and also an original game that the cafe owners had created. You need to order at least one drink for each 1.5hour block you spend in there, on top of a cover charge of 500yen per person.
