Want to spend a night out in the future? No problem, the Jicoo Floating Bar is your time machine ticket there. Open for business every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from 8 to 11pm, Jicoo (which is a cute Romanization of the Japanese word “jiku,” meaning “space-time”) plys Tokyo Bay between Hinode Pier near Hamamatsucho Station and Odaiba aboard a sleek, ultra-modern maritime starship that wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi space opera anime.
Admission of 2,500 yen grants you boarding privileges at either the Hinode or Odaiba piers for as long the bar is in motion—with beer, wine, and cocktails available on board for an average of 800 yen a pop. The boat also features a dance floor complete with DJs spinning a variety of genres ranging from ambient to deep house, and there are even live shows scheduled periodically on Fridays and Saturdays. The star of the show, of course, is the spectacular view of Tokyo Bay and the Rainbow Bridge, which you’ll pass under several times as you soak up the spirits and cut a rug or two atop the waves.
