Time Out says

Established by the crew behind annual electronic music festival Zipang, Débris in Daikanyama puts on a wide range of events, from club nights to art exhibitions and film screenings. The interiors and sound system were built with the help of artists and other creatives who earned their stripes at Japanese outdoor festivals, and the result is a quirky crisscross of tastes and sensibilities.

Open the door that looks like the entrance to a Prohibition-era speakeasy and you’ll soon find yourself in a flashy ‘neo-Asian’ cavern decorated with daruma dolls and neon signs. The bar serves up cocktails made with craft spirits from around the world, while the P.B. Restaurant by the entrance lets you savour aromatic Chinese tea and congee. The restaurant's shelves are stacked with rare books selected by the operators of 'mobile library' Paradise Books. All in all, Débris is the kind of spot that works just as well at lunchtime as in those feverish late-night moments before the last train.
