Glamorous Tokyo – Occasionally Gay Dance Party & Its World-Class Production

Glamorous Tokyo normally takes place at Tokyo’s biggest night club at Club Asia. This irregular gay dance party attracts young men with its epic shows, DJs and world-class production. Think the entire room with topless dancing guys.

Music: Expect festival music with a dance beat, circuit mix and those current hits from the DJ of the night.

Crowd: The venue has a strong concept of the “All human mix”.

Dress: Nightlife in Tokyo is pretty casual. Keep it comfy & trendy (don’t let yourself down). Even though at the end of the night no one wears any shirts, but the first impression does work.
