Me and Marcus were late, really late. I didn’t even have any time to style my hair hahahahaha. We were supposed to meet Maki and Kohta again, this time inside Shibuya station. BUT, since we were late and none of us had a cell phone, finding them was really hard. We had agreed on a meeting point, but still – we couldn’t see anyone.
I asked Marcus if it could be that they were waiting for us somewhere else or that they had left already, and we decided that it would be smart if Marcus could look around while I waited, just in case they came later. I was waiting for some time and suddenly Maki and a British friend of her appeared. I apologized for being late, but she told me she were also late. She told me she tried to call Marcus, but couldn’t reach him. I explained for her that we didn’t have cell phones with us. She also told me that Kohta were late.
PHEW!!! We thought that we were late, but lucky us everyone else were late too!!! Believe it or not, although I’m late very often I actually hate being late.
We were supposed to eat at The Lock-up in Shibuya, but ended up in Alcatraz. Both of the restaurant has a «horror-ish» theme. I have been in different restaurants with funny and interesting themes before, but not something like this! I hadn’t heard of Alcatraz before, but I’ve heard a lot about The Lock-up. According to Maki Alcatraz isn’t very different, and since she have been in The Lock-up more than in Alcatraz, we decided to go to Alcatraz!
To be honest, I think it was more kinky than scary… I’ll let you see what I got later. First, I wanna show you what Maki ordered:
I’m not sure what I think about Alcatraz, though… It was cool to experience one of these horror themed restaurants, but I won’t let them have more money from me. We had to pay table fee and the food and drinks were expensive – which isn’t really that bad considering that it’s not common to pay tips in Japan. But in this case I wish I could pay tips instead of table fee. The good thing about tipping is that you’re giving a feedback and a waiter would usually give better service.
The drinks are very funny, but that didn’t save me from being disappointed when I saw how little we got. The food was also nothing to be happy about, like with the drinks; we got very little for the money.
It wasn’t expensive compared to Norwegian prices, but compared to other places I’ve been in Tokyo and around the world in general. I know you’re kinda paying for the experience too, but the experience wasn’t exactly worth it.
There were shows there every hour, but in my opinion the «show» was just a man in some kind of a costume in the dark walking around in the dark trying to scare people. lol. I have to admit that I was screaming like crazy when he sat next to me – but it was more like because it’s how I react when a stranger sit next to me in the dark. lol
The service there was also really bad, the waiter never came to ask if we wanted to order or to check if we needed something. Every time we wanted something we had to make a lot of noises to get attention.
We had our own room – I like it when we can sit alone without being disturbed. But that’s the only positive thing I can tell about this place. For some people this might be a bad thing as some people would feel that we were kind of isolated. I’m a person that likes to be in more private settings when eating/drinking so I can pay more attention to the people I’m with, so this was perfect for me.
I wouldn’t recommend them… It MIGHT be fun if you’re in a silly mood and aren’t planning on going somewhere else later. If you’re going to spend even more money on a club later – save your money for something else instead. It can be really expensive if you decide to eat and drink here.
Anyways, Kohta came a little bit later and it was nice to see him again.
We decided to go to Club Camelot to have some fun. Unfortunately, Kohta had to leave already.
Inside the club, a girl talked to at me. I was a bit surprised and though that she probably thought I was someone else – but after a second I realized that it was Marina, the girl I met last week! So random! Jarrod was there too. Marina asked me if I was doing YouTube videos, and I said that I have an account where I uploads blog related videos, but that I’m not really a vlogger. She told me I should meet one YouTuber, and introduced me to Philip. I recognized him, my gyaruo friend Max is featured in one of his videos which someone linked to me long time ago!
Club Camelot was a really nice club with 5 (if I remember right?) floors. If you get in early the entrance fee isn’t much – and the drinks are 500 JPY only! I noticed that the DJ’s love to play the same songs… It seems like the 109 stores and the clubs in Tokyo are playing the same CD with music from 2005, lol. But I don’t mind, the songs are good and mixed well together!
I hope I can come back to this place one day!
