Run by a former FA (cabin crew to others) named Vince this a great place near the subway rail stations in Narita. It is full of airline momentos and flying stories (95-99% lies ; ) from the customers. Vince (a Belgian guy) is full of advice on where to eat, what to see and justabout anything else you need to know about Narita city. The bar is well stocked with bottles suited too all price ranges with the cargo section being cheapest..but hey who can turn down a shot of Jeremiah Weed??????
Certain nights have a DJ. Happy hour ends at 8pm but they do have free popcorn (with hot sauce on the side) if you buy a drink. Tends to be full of pilots in the early evening hours. The flight attendants don't start to filter in here till later.
Easy to spend money here as Vince and his staff will take great care of you just don't forget that most hotel shuttles make the last run back around 11pm and it is at least a 5 min run/sprint back to the pick up point..after that you need to keep money for a cab..good thing is that many cabs take credit cards here...ATMs on the other hand are few and far between if you have a western ATM card.
Dress Code: Jeans work here.
Directions: 10-15 min walk from Keisei/JR stations on Ipponmatsu-dori St.

Very generally, the ares of Tokyo can be characterized as follows:

Shinjuku - Red light district, but more "local" in it's club scene, great intimate small bars.
Shimokitazawa - Hip youthful club scene, DJ's, Rock, culture centre.
Shibuya - Trendy bridge and tunnel club scene extending to Aoyama.
Koenji - Small live rock venues, Punk, Metal, etc...
Shinbashi - Traditional older guy kind of hangout (loosen up that tie!), unpretentious and comfortable. Great small greasy restaurants, Izakaya. Casual bars.
Ginza - Often mischaracterized as expensive (which it can be), but also hosts small hip bars and restaurants of reasonable cost that cater to younger professionals, art types, trendy style industries, etc...
