“Established by Lux Chiantelle in 2012, the gallery and hangout known as Suntory Time had an instant following among cult art worshipers and fine art aficionados. While the space is relaxing and fun, the focus is on the art. Currently providing a regular music event, "Suntory Saturday Nights," with a rotating schedule of the grid's best DJ's spinning everyone's favorite indie music. Come join them every Saturday night, 7-9 p.m. (Pacific) or stop by any time.”
The club is in the corner of the gallery which may sound small but is set out fine enough space to hold a small gathering of listeners.
The club has been decorated in bright colors and is a small but yet again another inviting club. Here you will find:
