Once a scruffy place in Shinjuku, this venue shot to stardom after relocating to this cavernous space with a fantastic sound system in Ebisu. It's well known for its concerts (bands often use it as a launching pad for world tours), DJs, and other stage events most nights of the week. Otherwise, if you just want to chill, there's a Time Out Café & Diner on the second floor, open from 11:30am Monday to Friday and from 1pm on weekends, offering free Wi-Fi and a menu that includes salads and burgers. Liquidroom opens around 6 or 7pm, with performances 1 hour later.
