Popular because of its live events, Club MnD is the venue for the trendsetters of Naha City. Don't be surprised if you're not the only tourist there - people from all over Japan will fly in just to go to a show.

This venue was once a thriving cabaret theater, and has been transformed into one of the liveliest nightclubs in Naha City. The dramatic chandelier hanging from the ceiling hints to the club's cabaret past, but the disco balls set the party atmosphere.

Prices and operating hours depend on the event, but ticket prices start at around JPY2000, and the doors generally open around 6:00p. Details are on the website.
With a name loosely translated as "fireball," Hinotama Hall's dim, red lighting, psychedelic wall art and disco ball all promise a great night out for any lover of live DJ house music. There's no seating in this venue, but if you want to take a break and grab a bite to eat you can head to Fooding UNO downstairs. There's no cover on some nights, so be sure to visit the website to check out their events.
With special guest DJs and performers, it's no wonder that Club Twister in Ginowan City reaches its 700-person capacity.

The vast dance floor accommodates all styles of dancing, including occasional salsa nights and belly-dancing or break dancing performances.
