While browsing through places to go to, I came across a blog talking about Takashi’s cafe.
I told my brother about and it and we both agreed to go visit the cafe!!
We were supposed to go there on our fourth day in Tokyo, but since it was raining hard on our first day we decided to swap our itinerary and head to the cafe instead.
Bar Zingaro is actually hidden among the many stalls and shops inside Nakano Broadway.
How to go to Nakano Broadway:
1. Get down at Nakano Station
option lines and station code –
a. Tozai Line – N01
b. JB Chuo-Sobu Line – JB07
c. JC Chuo Line – JC06
There is only one exit as soon as you leave the train
You can expect a lot of things at Nakano Broadway besides Bar Zingaro.
There are a lot of shops and restaurants throughout the place. You will definitely not feel bored if you’ll be heading to Nakano.
How to get to Bar Zingaro:
Bar Zingaro is at the 2/F of Nakano Broadway. You have to walk through the “main” entrance of Nakano Broadway and find an escalator that will lead you to the 2nd floor.
We actually got lost at the 2nd floor and were super close in giving up since we were having a hard time finding Bar Zingaro but we eventually found it!
Tip: if you see this while walking through the 2nd floor (see photo below) you are already near Bar Zingaro!
Bar Zingaro is open everyday from 11 AM – 9 PM.
It was already night time when we left Bar Zingaro so we decided to go back the alley on the first floor where we previously passed thru to find a restaurant.
While walking we found a restaurant serving grilled unagi and decided to have dinner there.
