Time Out Says

Living up to its name, Small World has room for only five people at a time, but makes up for its modest size with an eclectic selection of both records and craft beer. Located between Sangenjaya and Shimokitazawa, the shop specialises in carefully curated underground sounds, all the way from avant-garde electronic music to indie rock. When you find a disc you’d like to listen to, ask the staff to play it while you grab a seat by the counter, settle in and decide what to order off the beer menu, which lists several excellent Japanese brews.
