Crocodile has spoken to generations of young Japanese with its casual rock-n-roll vibe and eclectic schedule of live bands offering everything from rock and blues to jazz-fusion, reggae, soul, experimental, salsa, and country. It's a good place to check out what people are listening to and to mingle with a mostly Japanese crowd, except on the last Friday of every month, when the Tokyo Comedy Store (www.tokyocomedy.com) provides more than two hours of comedy and improv in English starting at 8pm for ¥1,500.
