When searching for an establishment in Japan, copy and paste the words “キャバクラ” or “キャバ” into the search box, then enter the name of the place where you are located after putting a space.
Hello, This is Ken!
Today, I’m going to explain about 「KYABAKURA」 in Japan!
◆What is a 「KYABAKURA」?
A 「KYABAKURA」 is a place where a woman called a “cabaret chick” (cast member) sits next to you, serves you some drinks, and is chatting with you.
If you’re thinking that this is similar to a high-class club, you’re right!
Actually, they are very similar, but if you compare the details, you’ll find that they are quite different.
Let’s take a look at what’s different!
◆The Difference Between a 「KYABAKURA」 and a High-Class Club
- 「KYABAKURA」s don’t have a membership system, so anyone can enter, but high-class clubs only allow members or those introduced by members to enter.
- Many 「KYABAKURA」s have reasonable prices, but high-class clubs have higher prices..
- 「KYABAKURA」s have women between the ages of 18 and 25, while high-class clubs have women between the ages of 26 and 40.
- 「KYABAKURA」s have a “nasty” image, while high-class clubs have a “chilling” image.
- Not many 「KYABAKURA」s have a dress code, but high-class clubs do.
◆How much does a cabaret cost?
If you don’t know what you’re paying for, you can end up paying a ridiculous amount of money, do not get ripped off!
【1】 Set fee (basic fee)
The set fee is the cost of your seat, and is the price you pay when you enter the club.
Most restaurants also include the house bottle (alcohol prepared by the restaurant) in the set price.
Most clubs charge 60 minutes per set, but there are some clubs that charge 90 minutes.
Plus. there are some cheap clubs where you can drink as much as you want for the first 60 minutes for only 3,000 yen!
It’s better to check the price before you enter a place.
I’d like to recommend that everyone try to get in at the “first time only special price”!
So how do you get in?
Use “free-ride information center”!
In the entertaining downtown, there are usually ““free-ride information center” where you can get an introduction to fun places.
Of course, you can also look for discount information on the Internet, but it will probably be cheaper at “free-ride information center”.
The reason is this.
“Free-ride information center” communicate with the clubs in real time, so if the clubs are not busy at the time you visit them, they may offer you an incredibly low price.
If you go at a time when there are as few people as possible, the chances of getting a discount will increase haha.
You can even negotiate the price, which is nice for new customers!
It’s an obvious thing to say, but the extension fee is related to the set fee.
If the set fee is low, the extension fee is also low. If the set fee is high, the extension fee is also high.
If you want to go home after one set, you might want to tell the staff or the cabaret chicks from the beginning. I think there are many places that automatically extend their hours.
The first is called “full-nomination” and is when you enter the club with nominating a cabaret chick.
Most 「KYABAKURA」s will ask you if you have a nomination when you enter the club.
The second is “on-the-spot nomination,” where customers can nominate a cabaret chick in the club.
You can say, “Oh, I like that chick! I want to talk to her, can you invite her to this seat?
As for the nomination fee, I’d say it’s around 1,000 yen to 3,000 yen.
A companion fee is a charge for entering a 「KYABAKURA」 with a cabaret chick.
You meet your favorite cabaret chick outside the club
“It feels like I am in heaven!” There are a lot of men who think that haha.
The market price is about 2,000 yen to 5,000 yen per accompanying.
【5】Food and drink charges
This refers to the price of drinks and food that you order in the clubs..
Actually, this is the one you have to be most careful about.
You cannot deny when you have a cabaret chick who is designated by you.
I’m hungry…” or “I’m thirsty…” and they’re so good at spoiling me!
It’s so cute haha!.
Can you say, “I’m sorry, can you hold out for some water?
If you can, you’re not the right person to go to a 「KYABAKURA」 haha!
And if it’s a cabaret chick you’ve slept with before, it’s even harder to refuse.
One night, the bill for that day was 380,000 yen…haha.
Well, let’s have fun with your own wallets!
【6】VIP room fee
Each club offers a very luxurious space.
There are club where you can use the room if you pay the set price for two people, and there are also clubs where you have to pay an additional 10,000 yen to 50,000 yen on top of the set price.
By the way, I know a high-class club that requires 500,000 yen per year to become a special member OMG.
A carry-in fee is a fee charged when you bring food or drinks into a club.
However, since other customers are in the club, you may not be able to bring in anything stinky or gross, so it’s best to check with the club beforehand.
The price is usually between 1,000 yen and 3,000 yen.
This is the fee for purchasing a bottle of alcohol to drink in a 「KYABAKURA」.
There are many types of liquor ranging from a few thousand yen to several hundred thousand yen.
Most of the liquor that clubs offer as house bottles are cheap liquor.
Also, I don’t think cabaret chicks are very interested in customers who are drinking from the house bottle.
If we’re going to a 「KYABAKURA」, let’s take home a cabaret chick and sleep with her haha!
To do so, order a bottle instead of a house bottle, and if you want to be even more popular, open a bottle of champagne haha!
One of the cabaret chicks I’ve been working with told me that she loves the sound of the champagne popping open!
That moment when all the customers and cabaret chicks around you are looking at you, it gives you an indescribable feeling of happiness haha!
That’s an interesting value system haha!
Well, maybe that feeling isn’t so bad haha.
If there is a drink you like and you like the club, you should buy the whole bottle.
Even if you can’t drink the whole bottle that day, the club will keep it for you so that you can drink it the next time you visit.
A service charge in a 「KYABAKURA」 is a fee paid for being served.
A service charge of 20% to 35% will be added to the subtotal amount, and the consumption tax will be added to the total amount.
【10】Credit card commission fee
The fee for paying by credit card.
It’s usually between 10% and 20%.
- What is the dress code?
What is the dress code?
The more luxurious the 「KYABAKURA」 is, the more likely it is that they will have a dress code, but it’s not as strict as at high-class clubs.
But just in case, here are some things to wear that might get you denied entry.
◆The Characteristics of a Hated Customer in a 「KYABAKURA」
In my opinion, there is nothing good about being disliked by a cabaret chick, as 80% of my past girlfriends have been cabaret chicks.
Because if a cabaret chick doesn’t like you, you can never take her home, right?
I understand that there are many purposes for going to a 「KYABAKURA」, but if you’re a guy, you’re always going to have that mind “hopefully sleeping with a girl” when you’re out drinking.
But if you drink in a way that she doesn’t like, all bets are off!
That’s why I thought I’d introduce some characteristics of customers that cabaret chicks don’t like so that you can learn from them!
- Bad drinking habits! Talk too much or stare at the person sitting next to them.
- Very touchy-nasty
- Invite her to a hotel every time!
- Do not talk to her
- Too quiet and doesn’t talk to her. –
- Always invites her out in private, not as a companion or after-party.
- Not letting cabaret chicks order food or drinks.
- Always trying to get private information from her even though they have never met before.
- Talk loudly while spitting even though having bad breath.
◆Where are the 「KYABAKURA」s located?
There are more than 50,000 「KYABAKURA」s in all 47 prefectures.
There are as many as there are convenience stores in Japan.
I wondered how many years it would take me to enjoy all the 「KYABAKURA」s in Japan by going out to drink at one club a day. It turns out that it would take about 137 years haha.
Was it interesting?
Recently, there are 「KYABAKURA」s that are open during the daytime, called “Daytime 「KYABAKURA」“, and there are also “Online 「KYABAKURA」“
Just be careful not to spend too much money on alcohol, as it can make you happy and make you feel great.
When you sober up the next day, “What? Why did I lose so much money?” Don’t let that happen haha.
See you later, everyone!
