An unpretentious music bar, Analog is where you’d go for a drink and some music in a relaxed environment. It’s set on the third floor of the building across from Mikkeller Tokyo, in a somewhat ungentrified corner of Hyakkendana in Shibuya that’s full of character.
The space is decked out with comfortable sofa seating and vintage speakers from Altech, the brand that was once used in movie theatres. As such, you can expect a smooth sound experience – and a wide range of genres from Showa Kayo to the latest hip hop. There’s no mixing with the songs like those in a club, but played one after another in the style of a playlist.
The manager here was once a techno DJ and hence will curate the songs to match the crowd and atmosphere in the bar. Drinks wise, pick from rare liqueurs, raspberry and strawberry gin, and fruity cocktails. Coupled with the free snacks on offer, Analog is a great place to wind down after an evening of drinking, or a place to take a breather during a night of partying.
