Help me show my drink/party-loving friend who is visiting Tokyo a memorable time!

My friend will be coming to Japan this week. He will stay with me in Tokyo for a few days, then go to visit another friend for the 2nd part of his trip.
He's an old college buddy, and has always been more of a party dude than I am - enjoys being the life of the party and all that jazz. I tend to be more introverted, and am perfectly happy with one crazy night out every week or so; if he is anything like I remember him, he will be expecting to get shitfaced every night that he is in Japan. He's always been a good friend so I am happy to oblige, but I am not sure where to take him!
To make the long story short: I know what kinds of things he needs to see on the tourist end of things, but I want to make sure he is able to get his drunk on as well in a memorable fashion.
So far I've been thinking of taking him to bars, izakayas, karaoke, etc. He won't be around during the weekend. All of the places I am thinking of, though, are not conducive to socializing, and he seems to have a lot of fun making friends with strangers when he is drunk. I am not a huge fan of clubs but would be willing to go if he wanted to (but I don't know any to recommend! I heard Ageha is good?).
TL;DR: Please suggest to me some Tokyo-based drinking joints that will allow my friend to wake up the next afternoon saying "Woah, that was such a crazy place you showed me, I am so hungover - what a night!"
We will be staying in Shinjuku around the Kabuki-cho area, so please keep that in mind.
Thanks in advance!
