Drunkenstein

If a cave-based shrine to Frankenstein is your kind of place, you’ll like “3 Bozu Paradise”, a Frankenstein-themed joint hidden in the shadows down a dark side-street near Yokohama station. It’s an eerie eaterie that should please anyone who prefers Hellraiser to Hello-Kitty.

The whole place is abundant with imagery of Frankenstein’s monster. Everywhere you turn are pictures and statues of the famous flat-headed freak of nature and his big-haired bride. It’s very narrow and poky inside, with low, cave-like ceilings, so you might feel self-consciously similar to Frankestein’s hulking monster, as you try to navigate your way to a table without breaking anything. The most scary thing about the place is the threat of bashing your head on the low ceilings.

The murky interior is decked out like a medieval dungeon, with rock-like walls, and bars on the windows. It’s pretty realistic, although I don’t think classy food was served up to prisoners in real medieval dungeons- if history books are anything to go by, jailers preferred whips and chains to hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. If you want to get picky, I can’t imagine Frankenstein’s monster eating salad with chopsticks, either.

Still all this is quickly forgotten once you order a drink and start soaking up the spooky atmos. Cocktails with names like “Dracula’s Tears” are served up way past the witching hour, in test tubes, mad scientist-style.
And so, you can kick back and have fun, under the leering gaze of a green reanimated corpse statue.

    I take violin lessons in the really tall apartment on the other side of the bike racks from 3 Bozu Paradise once a week. I pass that corner and wonder about the Frankenstein thingie out front, but I’ve never had any reason (past mere curiosity) to actually enter the place. I imagine it to be very, very strange.
