If your idea of a chill weekday night includes breezy rooftop drinks, funky disco tunes, and a highball (or four), then Beamcube’s latest theme night might be what the doctor ordered. Each Wednesday this month, the listening bar will dish out cheap Japanese highballs and sake (from B180) and smooth city pop tunes curated by the venue’s in-house DJs. 

This isn’t a happy hour, either. The deals run the entire night, making it some of the best bang-for-the-baht you will get on Japanese highballs downtown—like Suntory Kakubin whisky sodas at just B180. The concise sake selection also gets some mileage with labels like Kamotsuru Kumarama running just B180/glass and B1,000/bottle (damn near what you would pay at a store directly). 



The new theme night is part of a larger plan to pair music genres with themed drinks during weekday nights each month going forward. First up is city pop, a broadly defined genre of Japanese pop music from the 70s and 80s that takes inspiration from a range of styles like funk, disco, boogie and soft rock. In recent years, the genre has seen a boost in popularity, with audiophiles ordering reissues of past vinyl hits and old city pop icons like Miki Matsubara ranking as high as number one on Spotify’s global viral chart in 2020. 

You don’t have to be a music historian to dig the vibes here, though. City pop is one of the more approachable styles of music out there—more of a chill and chat vibe versus cutting up the dance floor. 

The specials and tunes run from open to close each Wednesday at Beamcube.
