With standing room for up to 1,500 people, Namba Hatch is the largest music club of its kind in Japan. Presenting various genres of live music such as jazz, hiphop, funk, and rock, it’s an enthralling place to be for any music lover.
The unique layout of the building not only gives one a sense of awe at the architecture, but it also lends to high quality sound and unparalleled views. You can feel an exciting closeness to the music whether sitting down or moving with the crowd on the dance floor.
Right outside the building is the Minato Machi River Place, a riverside entertainment hotbed. From beer festivals to art exhibits to flea markets, you can pair an exciting outdoor event with the concert of your choice!
Before entering the concert hall, why not have a refreshing drink at the River Café, known for its wonderful ambience, live music bar, and outdoor beer garden. Aside from wintertime, you can also enjoy the riverside Texas BBQ restaurant for that hard-to-satisfy BBQ craving.
In addition to the live music and fun outdoor events, you also have the option of participating in one of several boat rides on the river! Namba Hatch is where many boat tours begin or end, so feel free to hop on for a pleasant ride along the Dotonbori canal to enjoy live jazz and spectacular views of Osaka’s Minami downtown area.
Combining the hottest live music with unbeatable outdoor festivals and riverside entertainment, Namba Hatch and its surrounding area is a must for the music-inclined visitors of Osaka.
