New Club Red
It’s the holiday season and the night clubs are full of interesting parties. We here at Okinawa NightLife will be featuring all the holiday events around the island for you to enjoy. Do you know how clubs operate here in Okinawa? The club system here is a bit different then you may have encountered before. In Okinawa most night clubs will charge a cover, with price ranges from ¥500 up to ¥2,500. Your cover charge includes entrance into the venue as well as a specialized free drink menu for you to enjoy. The free drink menu system allows you to drink awamori and a few chosen cocktails for free all night long. Since, the military curfew has been imposed in Okinawa, the club scene in the well-known Gate 2 Street area of Okinawa City has diminished. So, with curfew taking its toll on the night life, business owners have decided to switch things up.
In the past Club Red had no cover charge, but since its recent renovations the management has decided, like most clubs in Okinawa, to charge a reasonable entry fee. This new system will allow guests to enjoy a free drink menu all night and have access to the newly-renovated VIP Lounge Rojos. Rojos, once a Latin club on the second floor has now been renovated into a spacious and luxurious “VIP lounge”; the classy atmosphere created with leather and wood is a perfect place for guests to relax, have some drinks, play pool and still listen to the great music playing on the first floor. There is no extra charge to access the VIP Lounge Rojos. Club Red’s musical line-ups have also changed from hip hop and top 40 hits into a variety of dance music and remixes.
The club has added Flashback Saturdays to their event schedule. Every first and third Saturday of the month they will be playing the best songs of the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, in addition to taking requests. The club will also be holding its first New Year countdown party since the opening of the club. This event will of course take place on December 31st and the first 50 guests will receive a free mix CD and more. Make sure to get out and check out this newly renovated and classy club.
