"Free Space K" is a relative new-comer to the Tsukuba scene, first being introduced in the Oct.'94 ALIEN TIMES. It is a 66 square meter room that can be rented for parties, exhibitions, etc., and features a "weekend pub" every Friday night. With a good atmosphere and cheap food & drinks, it's a great place to be on a Friday night. There's no need to worry about table charges or how to divide the bill at the end of the night since you pay when you order at the bar, as in the British/Australian system. (Perhaps the Irish-Brit manager has something to do with this!) Many languages spoken: English, Chinese, Japanese, Malay & Wulfrunian (?!) etc. Alone or with friends, all are welcome.
The Weekend Pub is held every Friday night from 7 to 11 p.m. Drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic together with snacks are priced at ¥300 or ¥500 depending on content.
The address of Free Space K is Karima 2257-2, which is located a few hundred meters due west of the Tsukuba University Hospital along the road running beside the rice fields. It is next to Tsukuba Harikyuin (acupuncturist). The tel. is 0298-52-5436.
