Way back in the 1960s and early ’70s, Shinjuku was sprinkled with jazz coffee shops. Celebrated names of that bygone era included Dug, an establishment whose present-day incarnation is a cramped brick-lined basement on Yasukuni-dori. Everything about the place speaks serious jazz credentials, with carefully crafted authenticity and assorted memorabilia. A basement bar annexe below the nearby KFC is used for live performances.
