The atmosphere caulked the Trump Room in Shibuya.
A deer's head adorns a wall of the nightclub Trump Room, as eccentric as Shibuya.
Baroque box where it is good to be modern!
Difficult to find, no website, no clear signage, Trump Room in Shibuya is however well known by the trendy youth of Tokyo! Welcome to the trendy and electric "cool Japan".
A tiny black door, a strange cream staircase, then three very kitsch floors. Mirrors on all walls, so many glass beads you won't know what to do with them, velvet, beads, taffeta, skulls, plastic flowers, transparent glass flowers and glittering chandeliers: the Trump Room brings together the local who's who, in a deliberately baroque and certainly a bit "too much" setting. Improbable outfits, slick looks mastered in every detail, extreme make up, spending a night at the Trump lets you travel through a controlled superficiality
Although hidden away, this nightclub is packed every weekend. Theme nights compete with the arrival of local and international DJs - for example the Kitsuné label, it's time to get out your wildest outfits. Here, all eccentricities are accepted.
Against a background of techno or electro tubes, a strange game takes place between the omnipresent mirrors and the public, who are also too made up, adding a slightly disturbing atmosphere. Lively, energetic, decadent, colorful, Trump Room will transport the most whimsical.

So, prior to going in, dude was trying to get you drunk! That should have tipped you off? But we get what we come for, and if one reads the fine print, fine woman, it should have been no surprise! "Against a background of techno or electro tubes, a strange game takes place between the omnipresent mirrors and the public, who are also too made up, adding a slightly disturbing atmosphere." And, "Spending a night at the Trump lets you travel through a controlled superficiality," which is so very Japanese; aside from reality, where Trump is the rational one and Club Clinton a party place for bludgeoning baby seals, since when did a club that advertised a "background of techno or electro tubes" result in anything pleasant? A disturbing place, obviously. Any place that needs bouncers to force people in the door (pombiki, they are called, hawkers!) does need the presence of an elegant and well-mannered French speaking woman.
Awful experience. It was a huge scam. The place was empty and the music was terrible. They guy who told us about it tried ti get my drunk enough to go in. He was rude and called me a bitch for not being drunk enough to fall for his scam. Also he was shocked when I spoke French to the people at the door. The bouncer also pushed my friend when he was unprovoked. Literally worst experience of my time in Japan. Would not recommend to anyone.
