Club Azure………………….Ark Shinsaibashi West.B1F, 2-17-3 Nishi-Shinsaibashi Chuo-ku Osaka Osaka, Japan

CLUB AZURE has been a staple of the Osaka underground hip hop scene for years.  Its one of the reasons why I think clubbing in Osaka wicked.  You have your bigger venues such as Pure and Grand Cafe that play more recent hip hop tunes.  But then you have venues like Azure that stay true to the roots of  the music.  This place gets packed quickly so get there early.  The size of the venue gives live shows  a more intimate feel then at other places.  I had the honor of seeing my favourite DJ (DJ Premier) there and it was a show I’ll never forget.  I knew some of the people running the event so I was able to see, up close, Primo do his thing on the ones and twos.   Azure caters to the reggae and R & B heads as well.   Check out their website to find out more info on special events.
