Owner Hidefumi Kamura plays the piano at this jazz bar, frequently mixing it up with guest performers. Though the musical menu is generally standard jazz, you never know when the musicians will catch some inspiration and start improvising late into the wee hours of the morning. Unlike the other bars in Naha City, this venue serves borscht alongside the usual Orion beer.
Just off Kokusai Street in the heart of Naha City, D-Set Cafe holds a variety of live events that cover musical genres from the traditional kumiodori (Okinawan folk song and dance) to jazz, rock and punk. Folk group Kaguya Himo is their headlining band, and they perform on the last Saturday of every month. Visitors will be able to find friends among the multitude of music lovers that frequent the brightly lit cafe, and groups of friends can share a pizza and fries. Opening times and cover charge vary widely according to the event, so be sure to check the website for details.
Musica's lighthearted quality makes for a relaxing setting after stressful day at work, and on Wednesdays, stand-up comedy sets will help you forget your troubles. Because of the great acoustics, live performances and public reading nights draw large crowds into this stylish bar. On nights when there aren't any live performances, the drinks, food and conversation still make for a great time. Check the websites for performer biographies and set schedules. Opening times may vary depending on the events.
