What we're about

Open Mic for English-speaking foreign residents. This jam was created in the hope of providing a meeting ground for like-minded artists to network and share their stuff.

Important Note

Cafe 52 is a smoke-friendly venue. Although the sections(smoking/non-smoking) are divided and well-ventilated w/extra attention to air quality, they are not partitioned. And it’s a small bar in the basement. So if you’re sensitive to smoke, you are advised to skip. No one under 20 is allowed.

Open Mic(Music, English only)

Cafe 52- English Events & Live Jazz Co.

Open Mic for English-speaking foreign musicians; hobbyists, instrumentalists, singer/songwriters, bands, etc. Held every Saturday evening, all genres and levels are welcome. This jam was created in the hope of providing a meeting ground for like-minded musicians/artists to network and share their stuff, whether it’s folk, rock, hip-hop or free improv.

The house PA and instruments(piano, bass, drums, mics, amps, extra lines/inputs for keys, etc.) should be able to cover most folks’ needs, but musicians should bring their own whenever possible/applicable. (Feel free to inquire about your specific needs and for further detail.)

Rules & Fees

- There is no house band and no backup tracks are allowed except for select special circumstances(e.g., rappers, solo instrumentalists, self-accompanying(guitar or keys) vocalists, modern polyphonic/contrapuntal compositions that justify the need for extra tracks, etc.). Although covers are totally welcome, it’s not Karaoke. It's for musicians- experienced and aspiring novices alike.

- It’s mainly for English-speaking foreigners but there is no language barrier rule for instrumentalists.

- There’s no cover charge, just one-drink-minimum, paid upfront. (All drinks are 500 JPY.) Same applies to performers and listeners alike.
