Ghost is a new club in Amemura, the center of alternative lifestyles in Osaka. It opened in 2014 and caters to both young Japanese and foreign patrons, with the staff being foreigner-friendly and trying their best to communicate in English. It has a center dance floor and a lounge area, featuring also a stage for dance shows. Being in Amemura, it flows with the crowd and plays a lot of hip-hop, with Saturdays also seeing a top 40 mix. Ghost also invites guest Japanese and international DJs to its decks. The club offers foreign men a discount in admission fees (women generally enter for less, hence no special discount for foreign ladies).

Address in Japanese:
The closest station is Yotsubashi on the Yotsubashi line, but Shinsaibashi station on the Midosuji line is much more central in the subway network and almost as close. Get out from exit 7 of Shinsaibashi station and walk south on the Midosuji Avenue until you reach the store of Apple (at the second crossroad you find, in the off chance that Apple went bankrupt and closed the store). Turn right at that crossroad and follow the road till you reach a tiny triangular park with a small police station (Triangle Park, the heart of Amemura). Turn left immediately after you clear the park (or go through it and turn left) and follow that road till you see Ghost on your right hand, just after the first crossroad you pass.
