Tucked away from the street, it is accessed through a narrow hallway leading into the coolest Western-style bar boasting, perhaps, one of the most complete CD collections in the world. You may simply go and ask for any CD that you ever owned and they'll surprise you! The dance floor is not big, but there are always people grooving and having their fun. Rather laid-back on weekdays, the place is usually packed on weekends, staying open until early in the morning. Overall, it is very much chill-out with a regular mix of Japanese and foreign crowd. Apart from CDs, the Mac Bar also features live music shows.

Considered mid-size, the club has a rather spacious performance stage and a cozy bar area. It is also very sophisticated in terms of interior design, having much wood in decorations for the sake of good acoustics. This wooden music box has no problem gathering Japan's creme-ala-creme night clubbers. The Cream Club is located in Hakuba Building 2F.
