Cutesy Halloween Bar

The more warped kids in school wished it was Halloween every day, but it actually is in Yokohama’s “Halloween” bar. You can go to this Halloween-themed cafe/bar all year round and act and dress like a weirdo without fear of reprimand.

Having said that, if you turn up in the middle of spring in a Freddy Krueger costume you’re still likely to raise a few eyebrows.

Keeping it creepy, the music is classic Halloween tunes like Transylvania 6-5000 and Monster Mash. And the décor is all pumpkins and ghosts as you’d expect. There are numerous dolls and pictures of Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare before Christmas”, a ubiquitous face in Japan. Seemingly that film is Japanese people’s only frame of reference to Halloween- I wonder who the hell’s renting all those Freddy and Jason movies I see in the video shops.

Yep, in this joint it’s strictly a kid’s party version of Halloween, with no blood-dripping chainsaws or ice-hockey masks in sight. The staff are all very sweet and would probably have nightmares for weeks if they watched something like “the Exorcist.”

Disappointingly there are none of the novelty cocktails (like “Dr Jeckyl’s Potion” or “Vampire’s Blood”) I’ve come to expect from these places. But still, the bar is worth a visit for the novelty value. Presumably it’s good fun on October 31st.
