This is one of those bars you’d never find unless someone told you it existed, although funnily enough the owners were in the process of making a sign to go outside when we visited. It’s a small space upstairs in a nondescript building, and its tiny size and haphazard interior – which includes an organ, piano and drum set squeezed into one corner – give it an intimate atmosphere. Owners George and Atsuko Oya are big fans of Okinawan rock music, which they say has a special quality to it, and if the album covers displayed on every surface are anything to go by (Keith Emerson, Lenny Dee, Attila, Miklagard), you won’t hear the standard rock set during a night spent at Hammond Orgasm. You might even be treated to George playing some classical piano.
