Tucked into Shinjuku's Golden Gai bar district is the famous La Jetee. The bar is tiny, with movie posters covering the walls, and is a popular hangout for journalists, photographers, and filmmakers. Francis Ford Coppola, Juliet Binoche, Wim Wenders, and Chris Marke, director of La Jettee, the 1962 film after which the bar was named, have all frequented this unique gem, which pays homage to French cinema. There is a reasonably priced food and drink menu, which when combined with the interesting company you will meet should equal a memorable night.
