After we left the metal bar with the Nazi outfit on the wall, I took the Australian TV crew to Guinea Pig. Tim had no qualms about wrapping the resident pet snake around his hands — and letting it kiss him on the lips.

If you’re read my Crazy, Wacky Theme Restaurants: Tokyo book, then you’re familiar with this juxtaposition by now: horrifying, kitschy and kawaii (cute), all on the same shelf.

However, the special grapefruit cocktails and jasmine chu-his are delightful. And the crowd in this small bar is always friendly, with a wicked sense of humor.

Address: 東京都新宿区歌舞伎町2-41-3. Shinjuku, Kabukicho, 2-41-3, third floor.

It’s a little hard to find Guinea Pig… From the Kabuki-cho koban (police box), walk north until you reach the playground under construction. Guinea Pig is in a building on the right, filled with small bars and fronted with a white winding staircase.

Have you ever been to a fetish / S&M bar? What’s the weirdest drinking establishment you’ve ever visited?
