....and the party starting!!!!!!: the sun is setting...
kobe city on a january evening from rokko mountains, how beautiful it is!!!
just the moment when day turns to night, from the rokko mountains you can see the whole coastline of kobe until osaka, starting to glitter in the darkening sky.....ur heart starts to beat faster, the excitement is all over....time to descend down to the nightly city.....as its calling ur name......come come.....come to me....!!!!!!!
....go to sally`s bar.. :P: if u have nowhere else to go....
its not really a night club...its a pub with pool tables and a small dance floor, more boring than this, it can`t get, but amazingly enough, its quite popular with the kobe`s gaijin (foreigner) crowd. once u have been there twice, u pretty much know everyone there, which makes kobe feel like a real boring small city!!! as a new comer, u might wanna go there to get contact with kobe-jins.
the music varies from hip hop to salsa to some popular disco sounds...nothing for us who love trance or house :(( so u just have ur drinks and go to sleep on the rather cozy sofas :)))))
the only good thing with the place is their `daiquiris` which are strong enough to wipe u off ur feet....as well as erase ur memory the next day of having been there at all ;))

LOS GINTANOS: FLAMENCO!
This small bar/restaurant offers guests live flamenco entertainment at night. There is no cover charge, however you must order a drink or eat something. The night that I went there were 3 Japanese flamenco dancers and 1 guitar player. The program lasted about an hour.
I`m not sure if flamenco is offered every night so please call (in Japanese) in advance if you plan on going.
This establishment is open from 5-11pm only.
