The most popular bars among foreigners in Shinjuku are The Dubliners, The Clubhouse and Hub Yusukuni.
The Dubliner is located near the east exit of Shinjuku St. station. It is a lively bar, spacious on the second floor, and invariably filled with people who like a beer and like a chat. The regulars congregate around the bar and chat away with the bar staff and more often than not everyone seems to be having a great time. One of the interesting things about the bar is that the age of the customers ranges from teenagers and people in their early 20s to middle aged people in their 50s and 60s. This can be very interesting. It sometimes gets boring to always talk with people who are the same age as you.
Though the Dubliner in Ikebukuro seems to attract foreigners just from that region, its sister bar in Shinjuku seems to attract expats from all over Tokyo. Often in this bar you can get a real live taste of world famous Irish traditional music. Listen to the fiddle ringing out through the crowded bar and the beautiful beat of the Irish drum, the bodhran, and you will see why this music is so magical. Though this bar can get quite crowded it is nevertheless an excellent place to find friendly people eager to chat.
