American-owned, with lots of traditional American foods and a fully stocked bar, Shooters is the place for a taste of home.

As one of the small chain of nightclubs in major cities across Japan, this club regularly books up and coming bands that have hits on the charts but are still too new to fill large concert halls.

Established bands or their individual members, on solo or revival tours also show up occasionally.

The food is an eclectic mix of cuisine from Europe and the Americas, Poo's Mexican salad comes highly recommended.
