Lesbian / bi scene in Sapporo 2009/11/3 09:45
Sapporo
I was wondering if there are any pubs or cafes for lesbian / bisexual women in Sapporo. I've found some online info about one lesbian bar, hosted by a lesbian couple, but apparently that's gone under or moved or something. I would also be interested to know of any bisexual social groups in the area, in case foreigners can join. Thanks for all the tips!

I suggest the following psuedo-gay bars:

Club Mirror (South 6 West 2 Tel. 011-562-8779), not really a Lesbian or Bi bar, but has a lot of gay guys.

Locotonte (South 7 West 4, Suskino Kaikan Building 4F) has had a few gay nights and women-only nights.

Bar Orb (Tel. 090 2742 7070) [http://ip.tosp.co.jp/i.asp?I=kaekinky] This is a lesbian-friendly bar in Sapporo. It has a relaxed atmosphere, wonderful cocktails, and an awesome bartender/owner. Location: Sapporo, Chuo-ku, South 5, West 2, 4F in the ŽΠŒπ‰οŠΩ building.

Ku: for Women, in the 5th Keiwa Building (South 5 West 6 Tel 011-533-0222,
website www.geocities.co.jp/Foodpia-Olive/2202/. The owner, Keiko, and her girlfriend, Kaori are wonderful. Several parties are hosted here. Itfs also the offline meeting place for the Dyke Island website: [www.geocities.co.jp/Milkyway- Vega/1356/]

BYCS: Sapporo, Chuo-ku, South 6, West 8. Good cruising bar, lots of sex between people there.

Spike: Tel: 011 563 3155 website: www.otoko-spike.com Sapporo-shi, Chuo-ku, South 6, West 7. (in the •Ά‰» building). Bigger than BYCS, same situation of sex.

Outdated info? 2009/11/5 18:56
Thank you for your answer, bergeron! Um, do you have personal experience of those places? I know this may be a question you don't want to answer so I'm really sorry if I sound rude! It's just that I think the info is from the hajet forum (at least the bit concerning the bar ran by Keiko and Kaori) and it seems to be outdated. I think the Ku bar at least is closed, if I understood their web page correctly. Maybe it's not closed, but at least I can't find their new location. So, I was wondering if someone has current info on a bi / lesbian place in Sapporo. Thanks!

Looking for current info 2009/11/7 16:04
Thank you for your answer, stanfordgal! I'd like to point out once more that the hajet forum info is outdated. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but in case other people are wondering about the same thing as I am and are looking at this thread, I don't want them to get wrong ideas. Also two of your links did not really have any lesbian / bi specific content (?), so I did not understand what I was supposed to get from them. I'll try the Lego bar mentioned in the Utopia link - thank you!

Bar Lego and Bar Orb in Susukino are good bars for lesbians. I visited the both bars.
