I always liked Tokyo. This place doesn’t take itself too serious as other clubs tend to do, and yet it still displays class and style. Inside the club is divided into two rooms; a main room which sometimes, depending on the night, entertains live-bands and a lounge like saloon. They renovated this latter room and took out the, now famous, large circular white leather booths which used to be my favorite place to chill. Also, if you’re there, don’t forget to go on the roof top terrace… you’ll have a great view of Saint Laurent Boulevard and all the crazy people on it. The music varies depending on the night; disco, hip hop, 80’s music, and house. A dance floor is located in the main room for those who like to groove. A note to mention for those interested in sleuth work, some outdoor bouncers (because of external factors these places will remain anonymous) give out free passes for Tokyo.

I was having a nice time at Tokyo, until the time came to pick up my coat from coat check, and I realized that I had made the mistake of losing my ticket. I knew my ticket number, my initials, and I could see my jacket, but the staff demanded that I wait in line until 3 AM to pick it up (it was 1 am). I told the staff very nicely that I could not wait 2 hours to pick up my coat, and they were very aggressive (I was upset enough as it was, and the woman at coat check didn't even listen to what I was saying and yelled at me!). I had three friends speak on my behalf and they were all shut down with the same rude behavior. The bouncer was nice enough to search the floor and even admitted that the women were being irrational, but we weren't able to find the ticket. I understand that the staff has to deal with a lot of drunk, irresponsible people, but I expected a certain level of respect. I will not be coming back to Tokyo.

Ok so first, let me say that I used to go to Tokyo like every Sunday this summer because the dj is dope and the vibe is great (if you love hip hop music), but this weekend I had the worst experience ever. It's the second time in a row that I get disappointed by the staff there, but this time it was TOO MUCH... I got disrespected like never before. First, I arrived with my friends and they weren't allowed to get in even thought they had a guest list for one of my friends birthday, but that's just a typical behaviour of the bouncers there. They get who they wants in there and don't give a f*ck about you. I never personally had problems with them because I'm a girl so they always let me in, just like they did last weekend. I ended up going in the club with my other girlfriend and started off the night having fun until a fight started between two girls inside. I was dancing and two girls started punching each other and I got stucked between them and the wall and I was basically receiving all the shots and couldn't breath well until the bouncer came and threw me out of the club without saying anything (the two girls fighting stayed in there). At first I thought he just took me out to help me so I tried to come back inside after my friend calmed me down but the doorman told me I couldn't get in cuz he didn't know if I was involved in the fight and wouldn't believe I wasn't. Then he acted like a serious jerk when I tried to talk to him since the situation was unfair and he just kept being a b*tch (seriously I can't even tell you how much I felt disrespected by how he was talking to me). Then I ended up waiting 20 minutes in the cold outside for my coat (I don't know what the h*ll took him so long..)



Anyways... All that to say that the staff there really got no respect for you so don't go to Tokyo if

1. You don't have a guest list

2. You are all guys

3. You don't know anyone who works there

4. You have a face that the doormen might not like.......

Arrived at the Club with some buddies around 10ish on a Sunday night. We were all visiting Montreal for Bachelor party. James the Bartender was awesome and gave us shots and drinks with the hookup! At around 12 the place was packed and had great hiphop! Definitly recommend Tokyo Bar, especially on a Sunday night!

Alright, I'm from Toronto. Pretty big party scene down here. Went to tokyo bar on the sunday cuz there were no other place to go. Music wasn't too bad, played some weird hip hop at some point during the night but I was too tipsy to notice. Bartender was GREAT~ Her name is Stacy, MUST goto her for your liqour. Best mix drinks I've ever had =D She made my visit fun~

TOKYO BAR IS LIVE. The music played is ridiculously good you have no time to take a break. The only shitty part is that there's no coat check and that REALLY blows.

The only thing nice about this place is the terrace in summertime. Tokyo lost a lot of prestige since it opened... The new facelift just does not cut it.

Tokyo Bar is great, but only on Sundays. Sunday nights it's packed to the fullest and the musics great! Such a good time. The other night's it's pretty dead. Great place for Asians.

Dont be fooled by the name, Tokyo is nothing of a bar and more of a lounge/club. A token St-Laurent joint, small but very classy, à la Bubbles/Ilume, some of the hottest girls in Mtl frequent it.
