Sapporo Gay Bars

Sapporo Gay Bars

Sapporo has a small but vibrant gay scene where most of the gay bars are located within the SA Building in Sapporo's city centre.

The bar staff speak limited English, but they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Expect to pay a “Charm Charge” (or table charge) of 1,000 Yen per person on top of your bill. Many gay bars also have men-only policy.

Located on the 5th floor of SA Building, Bar Sign Oh! offers a nice city view of Sapporo.

No table charge like most of Japanese gay bars, and both male and female customers are welcome. A good place to hang out with a mixed group of friends.

ID is hangout for the young gay crowd in Sapporo. This small (and sometimes crowded) bar plays good music.

The staff are very playful and make you feel welcome. Located not too far from the SA Building.

A “New Half Show Club” in Sapporo. The show is called “New Half” because the top part of the show artists are “new” (boobs and face jobs).

Each show is very well-executed with a lot of time and effort spent on costumes and makeup. The whole production consists of over 20 drag queens delivering various Japanese and international numbers.

The show costs around 4,400¥ (with free drinks) and is about 90 minutes long. There are 3 shows nightly (8pm, 10pm, 12am). Advance reservation recommended.

A bigger bar than most venues in the SA Building. KID.ING has karaoke facilities and offers a fun and engaging environment.

Foreigners are encouraged to sing as they don’t get many English-speaking customers.

Counter-style bar run by a team of young good-looking staff. Good karaoke system. Gay men only and less tourist-friendly than some other gay bars in Sapporo.
