Lively Music and Entertainment While Dining

If you are a fan of good music and good food then Rooster is a good choice for your evening. With two locations in Ogikubo, the original Live Cafe since 1997 near Ogikubo Station South Exit and Rooster Northside since 2005, owner Mr. Sato and company have kept the jazz and blues flowing. Sometimes they also have soul or other styles– particularly the oldies pop/rock nights are a ton of fun.

The restaurant aspect is also in full force, with a well-rounded menu (including pictures and English names) you’ll find jerk chicken/pork, gnochi, chili, vegetable dishes, pizza, as well as snacks and side dishes. The specialty is “Rooster Don” a Japanese style donburi-bowl of miso-ground chicken with friend egg topped on rice. All kinds of drinks and alcohol are available as well.

For a lively night of good music, good eating, and good times, this is the place to be. They even do a magic show during the intermission of each live event!
