Sound Lab Mole is a club that is used as an event space for live shows, DJ’s and dance parties. Its a reasonably large space that fits up to 450 people. It has 2 bars, lockers, a large stage, and an upstairs VIP section, and there is some seating but not much so be prepared to be standing most of the night. The sound system is good and the stage is quite large for the many bands and DJ’s that come through this popular venue. Moles monthly schedule is available on their website so you can get the latest news on whats going on! Drinks are the standard prices and tickets usually will incorporate a free drink or two. For those with bags or with heavy jackets during the winter, lockers are available for ¥100 each.

Mole is also available to rent out! If you have the cash you can hire the space for a night. It is costly though, ranging from ¥120 000 (about $1200) to ¥300 000 ($3000 dollars) depending on the night. Obviously, the peak and most expensive times being Friday or Saturday nights. Other than that, Mole serves as a great place to catch some live bands, good DJ’s, and some thumping tunes in all genres. So, put on your dancing shoes, check whats going on and head on down to Sound Lab Mole!
