Original Beat Cafe (Shibuya Tokyo – through end 2012)

Photos of the original Beat Cafe in Udagawa, Shibuya, Tokyo before its relocation at the beginning of 2013, including messages handwritten all over the inside walls by clients and visiting musicians.  Famed as the coolest place for Tokyo musicians and hipsters to hang out, the bar and its sister-venue Echo welcomed many local and international touring bands over the years.  The bar has now relocated (B1F, 2-13-5 Dogenzaka, Shibuya) and reopened on 4 January 2012.  Here’s to a new Beat era!
