A famous, albeit small, friendly nightclub, Metro located in Marutamachi railway station on the Keihan Line attracts young, happy crowd. The music may be live or provided by DJs. The type of music depends on the night, but live acts have included man-of-the-people Linton Kwesi Johnson, Japan's Fantastic Plastic Machine, and Pizzicato Five. There's techno, drum and bass, trance, latin, jazz, pop, dub, roots reggae, hip hop and much more. Regular nights include Cool to Kool with contributions from Kyoto Jazz Massive; the wild Diamonds are Forever drag queen event, associated with the famous Dumb Type theater group; and Latino Connection. There may be two club nights on the same evening with separate charges, perhaps with a local band.
