If you want lo meet locals, this is maybe not the best place. It's full of foreigners. Quite small and crowded, the good is that you can drink at the street side.

Friendly gay bar at the intersection of Tokyo gay district. Bar is small as most bars in Japan but cosy and welcoming. We have to stand outside to drink even at ard 9pm. It is packed with mostly foreigners.

Aiiro became our “local” in Tokyo. A great mix of locals and expats. It was our launching point for fun nights in Tokyo, and the happy, approachable vibe from management and patrons should be a blueprint. We loved the way the festive atmosphere always spilled...More

海外から来た友人を連れて行くのに見つけた場所でした。有名な芸タウン、新宿二丁目のど真ん中のオープンバー。事前にいろいろと調べていたので、混み合うことは予想していましたが、週末だったからか、、、想像以上!なによりも、色んな人種の人があふれかえっていて、ここは日本なのか??と、ちょっとした海外旅行気分でした。座る椅子なく、そのぶん?テーブルチャージ的なものがないので、気兼ねなく飲めました。男性が多いですが、女性も結構いて、友達とワイワイ飲んでいるグループ、店員さんと仲良く話している常連さんたち、一人でしっぽり飲んでいる人。。など、様々でした。店員さんの接客が気に入りました。日本人のスタッフと外国人のスタッフが、男女いて、みんな元気です。話しかけるとニコニコ、新宿二丁目でのおすすめを教えてくれました(ラーメンを後に食べに行きました)。注文も待たずにすっと出てきます。 食事はありませんでした。 飲み放題?もあるらしく、今度はまた別の友達と立ち寄りたいと思いました。 This place was great! I have visited with my friends who came from oversea. The staffs and customers are all friendly and kind. No table charge. Open air space in the famouse gay town in Tokyo, Shinjuku Nichome.

I have been here around for about 15 years, but I will never visit again as a customer. Because they don't know how to do the service industry. I'm sorry to say this but especially the black guy is very bad attitude and childish.
