Mostly hip hop
A two-storey club and gig spot on Komazawa-dori in Ebisu, Batica’s ground floor is an all-white lounge space while the room upstairs is a lot flashier (think disco balls and chandeliers). Its top-grade facilities host musicians of all genres.
Why we love it
You get to explore up-and-coming artists and labels at Batica – in fact, this is where many now-famous rappers and bands broke into the scene. It also feels comfier and more welcoming than many other clubs. It’s the kind of place you want to keep going back to as it makes you feel like you’re part of a community.
