Cambiare is a bar situated in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, Japan, the interior and sign-design of which is based on visuals from Dario Argento’s classic 1977 horror film, Suspiria.

Buried in the hustle and bustle of Tokyo’s already hectic Shinjuku region is an area known as Golden Gai – it is here at 1-1-7 2F Kabukicho you will find Cambiare, one of several themed bars and private clubs which operate in this district. Rather bigger than many in the locale, Cambiare takes its interior decor inspiration from the lurid and garish colour schemes of Dario Argento’s most famous film, Suspiria, the dazzling reds, yellows and blues almost requiring medical intervention to prevent burning.

The most striking aspects are the familiar stained-glass window, overbearing chandelier and deliciously psychedelic wallpaper, though more committed fans will also notice that the exterior’s sign utilises the same font as Argento’s film, whilst the liberal use of neon reflect the strangely illuminated doorways on screen. The menu offers a less inventive selection of pizza, lurid cocktails and Italian wines and spirits but, rest assured, the familiar strains of Goblin will feast your ears whilst you contemplate exactly what is creating those strange shadows…
