Play games until dawn: Bagus, Shinjuku

Japan is a place where it is safe to walk throughout the night. Especially in Tokyo, where you can enjoy shopping at all hours – with many restaurants and convenience stores running 24 hours a day. That said, there are not many amusement centers to enjoy throughout the night. Even though Shinjuku Kabukicho is said be a town that never sleeps, most amusement centers are not sophisticated and also close at midnight.


So we’d like to introduce you Bagus Shinjuku – as it’s an ideal place for those times when you don’t want to go to bed yet – when you want to push on into the night with friends. Bagus is an amusement center chain based mostly in central Toyko. Bagus Shinjuku is fully equipped with darts, billiards and karaoke facilities. The highest quality service and state-of-the-art facilities make this is a great spot for adult amusement fun.


Challenge yourself with top grade, non-warped pool tables

The billiards floor has a luxurious interior and atmosphere. The meticulously cleaned 28 tables are set on a spacious area; even beginners feel welcome here, and the stylish setting is perfect for dates. The equipment used is sourced from top overseas and domestic makers, the quality tables are approved for professional tournaments, and are re-clothed using Simonis brand fabric 2-3 times per year, and there are a selection of the best cues including genuine Miki Mezz.

From open until 7pm, the charge is one drink plus 280 yen per person for 30 minutes. After 7pm the price of 30 minutes is 310 yen. On weekends and public holidays add another 30 yen to the above, which we believe is still a reasonable price. *Price excludes tax



Online competition on state-of-the-art electronic dart boards

The darts floor has 20 electronic dart boards – the revolutionary “Darts Live 2EX” machines, and the next generation “VS Phoenix S” which are equipped with the latest digital interfaces and online battle capabilities. Both types have outstanding displays with various visual effects to get you excited. For those who are distracted by the other machines/players, a private room (with karaoke facilities included) is recommended – prices start at 2500 yen.

It’s an all-you-can-throw system, with the purchase of one drink necessary and prices starting at 250 yen for 30 minutes per person from open until 7pm. After 7pm it’s 300 yen per 30 minutes each. On weekends and public holidays add an extra 30 yen. *Prices exclude tax



Experience courses from around the globe on the golf simulation machines

These Golfzon simulators are the real deal (actually used for training) and are offered in a private room. Taking a full swing into the massive 3D displays will definitely relieve your travel tiredness or lower stress levels. You can borrow clubs, shoes and gloves for free – meaning there’s nothing to hesitate about giving it a shot. And of course the staff kindly teach you how to play using the machines.

1-2 people: 1100-1500 yen per 30 minutes
3-4 people: 900-1300 yen per 30 minutes

5 people party: 700-1100 yen
On weekends and public holidays add 200 yen, but it’s still definitely more reasonable than hitting a real course.



If you like to get sweaty, try a game of table tennis

They also have 3 tables to play the popular-of-late table tennis. Don’t worry – rackets are available to borrow for your enjoyment (both penhold and shakehand types). It’s most refreshing to be able to play retro games in an environment that caters to adults.

50 yen for 30 minutes per person – 400 yen from 7pm onwards. Racket rental is free. *Prices exclude tax.



Great selection of snacks on hand for your comfort

All the usual drinks – wines, cocktails, non-alcoholic – as well as a great variation of foods including authentic pastas, snacks, and deserts, etc. are available. After being active it’s nice to get a meal without having to return to your hotel. Bagus also has 26 other branches in places such as Shibuya, Ueno, Shinsaibashi and Kawazaki, etc. Next time you come across one near a sightseeing area, why not party all night here?
