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 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 2 hours of comedy and improv in English starting at 8pm for ¥1,500. The club has a good, laidback atmosphere; although it’s a not a dance club per se, no one will mind if you just can’t help yourself.
