 A Safe and Sound Lounge

The reopening of Takashima Records on June 18th

At Takashima Records, our number-one goal in reopening is first and foremost the safety of you—our valued guests—and our dedicated staff. 

With that in mind, coupled with the inspiration of the tiny bars in Golden Gai, Tokyo, we are recreating the Takashima Records experience with a micro approach. We can still bring the best sounds and flavors, designed around intimacy, comfort, and most importantly a clean environment. 

Our space:

  • Naturally lends itself to a responsible, semi-private experience

  • Has seating spread out across our main floor and second-floor balcony

  • Features booths built from repurposed shipping containers

Our new ticketed experience introduces multi-course dining and drinking, with three services nightly Thursday-Saturday, each 2 hours long. We allow for only a 20-person capacity per seating to ensure proper distancing and safety. 

The Takashima Records experience:

  • Features a vinyl DJ (of course!) bringing the vibes every evening, along with a special set menu to satisfy and gratify

  • Serves up sashimi plates and other surprise delicacies in multiple courses by Chef Chris Krzysik

  • Stirs up five signature cocktails by Bar Manager Tai Nalewajkó, who has also procured the best sake, wine, and beer selections to take the food and the sounds to the next level

Each seating is $125 per person (beverages included; tax and gratuity not included). Reservations required; book online here.

While you’re here, we’ll be:

  • Thoroughly cleaning all high touch surfaces every 30 minutes with EPA approved disinfectant

  • requiring all staff to wear PPE and taking temperatures daily upon arrival

  • minimizing face to face contact

  • restricting the n umber of employees and guests in our space

  • providing hand sanitizer for all tables and hand sanitizing stations throughout the space

  • cleaning the entirety of the space between seatings

We thank you in advance for your support and patience as we navigate this new experience—and we look forward to serving you soon.
