Paul Laimal-Convoy, you can't pull Japanese girls in Roppongi?! Are you serious? If that is the case, things must have really changed. In the early 90s, Roppongi was ever so easy to pull, especially if you were 6ft etc. And I remember an old Yank telling me: 'Hey man, if you think it's easy now, you should have been here in the early 70s.'

Interesting post, Patric. Was Gas Panic where Jeja Vu used to be when you were there? Were the J girls working or just on a night out. I rmember western girls used to dance on the old Deja Vu bar topless. Over twenty years ago now.

Roppongi appears to have changed since I was there between 1989 and 1992. I can only think of one Nigerian and he worked the door at Deja Vu, where Gas Panic is now. The old Gas Panic was next to the sushi bar and was a cesspit, a very enjoyable one, though. It looked like the sort of place that would be more at home in Metro Manila. Round the graveyard was a nice laid back bar called Charleston It was next to the bottom of the steps that led to the Square Building area. There was another bar just up the steps and right called Gaijin Zone. And that was about it, apart from a place on Gaien Higashi Dori on the right on the way to Roppongi Crossing called Motown and a tiny place called Little Star next to the McDonald's opposite the little road that lead to Vu etc.
I'm pretty certain Roppongi was a much nicer place to party then, but the whole world pre-the means of instant communication was more exciting because you didn't know what was in store before you got there. Now you can preview everything on YouTube etc.
