Even though I don't drink alcohol, I might check it out soon!

I first heard of this type of establishment from this article: https://thevinylfactory.com/features/tokyo-jazz-joints-visual-chronicle/

From their Instagram page:

Looks like they have Line Magnetic LM-808 speakers!

@mhardy6647 - Is this a good sign?

    I didn't know Oakland had anything that could be considered uptown.

    I'm bummed that Mark never chimed in. How could he not reply to horns?!

    Maybe he didn't see his tag. @mhardy6647

    Be curious to see if the system is true to audiophillia or if it’s just a nice TT and same lamp corded Bose.

    Well they were posting photos of those Line Magnetic horn speakers on their social media, so I'm assuming it's going to be paired up with a nice turntable setup.

    I'll let you know and take some pics if/when I go.

    Cool bar. Love the décor and speakers!

    Isn't that Ortophon cartridge sitting too low towards the record?
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
