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

    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.
