The Weller’s Club is a spacious bar/club venue on Takoyakushi Dori. The owner, Yamamoto-san is a big fan of Paul Weller (hence the name) and also of British pub culture, and in 1998 opened this club with the intent of creating a space where people could meet and have a drink while listening to British music.
The array of musical events that go on each month are not limited solely to Paul Weller’s music however, and include soul, jazz, roots rock, rock and more. When I went last weekend I was treated to performances by three dj’s and a local singer/songwriter and all free of charge. Also they serve beer in proper pints, which is nice. Check out the photos below; the black lighting makes everyone look tanned and healthy. Click through to flickr for a closer look:
To find The Weller’s Club head west on Takoyakushi Dori from Kawaramachi. The Weller’s Club is on your right on the 5th floor between Fuyacho Dori and Tominokoji Dori. Look for the swirly purple Weller’s sign. Here’s a map.
