Lost in Translation (bar) & Babel (club) 2008/4/30 02:25
Tokyo 23-ku
I am looking for a bar and club in Tokyo that were each used in a specific scene in the movies Lost in Translation and Babel.

1.)LIT - The bar where Bob and Charlotte where hanging out with Charlotte's Japanese friends. I remember the bar had those big lanterns/lights hanging from the ceiling that had a fireworks "effect" shooting from them. Very cool ambiance. I am not sure if it is the same place as the Karaoke bar in Shibuya

2.)Babel - The club in Tokyo where Chieko and her friends were dancing at with the laser lights and the song September playing in the back ground.

Thanks,
Ryan

I believe (not 100% sure) that the 'Making off...' featurette on the DVD mentions that the bar with the big lanterns and the strip club is actually the same location and wasn't a real bar or club at all.

Well I found that the club in the movie Babel is actually Womb, it was listed in Wikitravel under Shibuya.

I know the strip club was created for the movie but it would be a real bummer if the bar with the laterns was made just for the movie too. It looked really cool!

The club that they filmed in lost in translation, not being the strip club is a club called AIR. Here is the link.
